Born into a family of werewolves, Zach Trewick finds himself faced with the question of whether he should accept this evil life for himself, or take the desperate and risky gamble of running away from home. To make things worse, he’s got only three days left to make up his mind.
Scrambling to find a way to stay human, Zach quickly makes a bold plan to find his uncle Justin nearly a thousand miles away in Texas, the only person he can think of who might take him in. Stowing away in a septic tank, sleeping in a library, and living in a dog house on a vacant lot are among the adventures he encounters along the way.
But the werewolves have no intention of letting him escape so easily. For although he doesn’t know it yet, Zach is the Curse-Breaker, the long-foretold boy who can crush the wolf curse forever, and his family will stop at nothing to prevent that.
