Squad is about Becca, a new student at Piedmont High who’s always been a weirdo. However, after she gets invited into the biggest clique at school, she gets everything she wants. Becca has new friends, new clothes, and a new start. There’s only one problem: they’re all werewolves, who prey on predatory boys. And when she’s let into the pack, and a boy dies, things get complicated. Squad is a mix of Teen Wolf and Heathers with a feminist twist. The art is beautiful, and the story is compelling. The characters, although cliche, are interesting enough to support the story. All in all, this is a fast-paced, if a little too familiar, YA horror fantasy mashup.
