This month's Jumble Your Genres genre was Paranormal. I jumped on the chance to read a book that was not only a paranormal, but one that's been on my ereader for quite awhile. Score!

Rylie's been bitten.
And now she has three months to find a cure before becoming a werewolf...forever.
Rylie Gresham hates everything about summer camp: the food, the fresh air, the dumb activities, and the other girls in her cabin. But the worst part is probably being bitten by a werewolf. Being a teenager is hard enough, but now she's craving raw flesh and struggles with uncontrollable anger. If she doesn't figure out a way to stop the transformation, then at the end of summer, her life is worse than ever. She'll be a monster.
Six Moon Summer was a nice introduction to the Seasons of the Moon series. The plot was a little predictable, and it is written for the younger end of YA, but I liked the characters and the execution.
Rylie has been shipped off to summer camp. Her parents are in the middle of a contentious divorce and wanted her out of the line of fire. Rylie is feeling like her life couldn't get any worse. But it does - when she's attacked by a werewolf.
A bright spot in Rylie's life is Seth. Seth shows up at just the right time. He seems to know a lot about what Rylie is undergoing and what's coming. And he's with her every step of the way. But Seth's hiding something - and it's something that may be devastating effects for Rylie.
Rylie is a 15 year old and acts as such most of the time. However, she showed resilience and strength in the face of what she was experiencing. And she exuded a fair amount of maturity when things came to a head.
Although we don't learn much about Seth, I liked him. He showed compassion to Rylie when she needed it. And even fought his instincts where she was concerned, despite the possible consequences.
Six Moon Summer, despite its predictability, was an enjoyable start to this series. I'm eager to see what the future holds for both Rylie and Seth.
