Rachel Harrison takes a grisly approach to self-acceptance in Such Sharp Teeth.
Like many survivors of childhood trauma, Rory Morris stays away from her hometown for a reason. Bad memories lurk, and all the success she’s experienced in Manhattan don’t count for much with the people who know her as the wild, hurting teenager that fled a decade ago. However, her twin is pregnant and coping badly, so Rory comes home. At first, the scariest encounter is with Ian, an old friend who raises uncomfortable feelings. Then she runs into the werewolf, and everything changes.
Especially during a full moon.
