School just let out, and already Ben is dreading his summer.
While other seventeen-year-olds cavort around his rural South Carolina hometown, Ben is stuck working for his father, grooming one hundred acres of family land to be sold to the neighboring Boy Scout camp. However, Ben's plans derail when his older brother Kit returns to town after an unexplained three-year absence. Kit's presence dredges up more than just bruised feelings. It also reawakens the Ross family secret. The paranormal genetic condition Ben and Kit inherited from their late mother-the woman who could become a wolf at will.
You have to be a man now. His mother's dying wish haunts Kit at every turn.
When he returns to find his home up for sale, brash Kit ropes his soft-spoken brother into a hare-brained scheme to save their woods. A plan that involves rebelling against their strict father, terrorizing a couple hundred Boy Scouts, and entrusting their secrets to the unlikely friends they make along the way.
As their summer descends into a whirlwind of blackmail, hijinks, and burgeoning romance, Ben and Kit will come to some startling revelations about how many different ways exist to be a man.
HOMO LUPUS is paranormal coming-of-age fiction set in the rural south.
