Feral Nights by Cynthia Leitich Smith***

Feral Nights is about Yoshi, Aimee, Clyde. These three teens are all caught up in a murder of Clyde and Aimee's friend. And did I mention that two of them are were-animals? Yoshi is looking for his sister, who is being convicted for murder, but cannot be found at the moment. They must go and find Yoshi's sister and find out who really killed Clyde and Aimee's friend.

This book has a lot of action. It isn't the best book, but it is one that incorporates a myth into it without twisting it in some huge way. I also noticed how the were-animals were actually friendly throughout the book, unless on a drug or forced to cause pain. I thought that high school readers might like this book.
