Ever had a dream holiday turn to a living nightmare? Unfortunately, a group of eight students have that experience, in one of the most terrifying places imaginable- HIGH SCHOOL. Just kidding!... More > It’s Dracula’s castle. But according to the shy girl, Serena Fox (the story’s main character), what’s the difference?
Serena’s story will grab your attention from the beginning. It’s different. It feels more real. More personal. More like a diary.

In contract to Buck's story in Call of the Wild, which moved from domestication to instinct, White Fang moves in the opposite direction and though he ends his time equally mythologised, in some respects it’s a less climactic path with the tension easing if a little unevenly. Even if it doesn't work quite as well as the first book, White Fang still remains immensely popular.< Less
