Harcourt Children’s Books – November 2011
Seventeen-year-old Holly Mullen has felt lost and lonely ever since her boyfriend, Rob, died in a tragic accident. The fact that she has to spend most of her free time caring for her little sister and Alzheimer’s-stricken grandfather doesn’t help. But Holly has no idea that as she goes about her days, Rob’s ghost is watching over her. He isn’t happy when he sees his best friend, Jason, reach out to help Holly with her grandfather—but as a ghost, he can do nothing to stop it. Is his best friend really falling for his girlfriend?
As Holly wonders whether to open her heart to Jason, the past comes back to haunt her. Her grandfather claims to be communicating with the ghost of Rob. Could the messages he has for Holly be real? And if so, how can the loved ones Rob left behind help his tortured soul make it to the other side?
Told from the perspectives of Holly, Jason, and Rob, Wherever You Go is is a poignant story about making peace with the past, opening your heart to love, and finding the courage to move forward into the light.

“Alternating between Amy and Henry’s intersecting stories, Davis’s (Never Cry Werewolf) second novel has a quiet power; the time travel element gives the story the feel of an old-fashioned romance, with a tinge of melodrama. The tale takes some unexpected turns, providing insights into healing and the weight of destiny along the way.” (Publishers Weekly)
NEVER CRY WEREWOLF (Book One)
“This werewolf debut makes for a quick read and an easy sell for reluctant readers.” (ALA Booklist)
“Davis weaves together a fast-paced action adventure story with issues of peer pressure, divorce, betrayal, friendship, acceptance, and, of course, romance. This novel has great teen appeal [and] will leave readers wanting more.” (School Library Journal)
SOMETIMES BY MOONLIGHT (Book Two of Never Cry Werewolf)
An e-book novella ~ arriving in June 2011
“The scar on my arm had almost healed over, but on the nights I stood in front of my dorm window drinking in moonlight, it almost burned. It was an indelible reminder of our night in the forest, the night that Austin almost died saving me…”
Moonlight is Dangerous…
It’s bad enough that the guy Shelby fell in love with at brat camp last summer had a dark secret, but helping him protect it has come at a huge cost. It’s goodbye, Beverly Hills mansion; hello, creepy Swiss boarding school.
What could be worse than doing time at Steinfelder Academy for Girls? Not hearing a word from her summer boyfriend, Austin Bridges III. Shelby’s not even sure that the sacrifice she made for him meant anything, especially after she spies him in the tabloids with a European pop princess. But Austin’s more than your average son-of-a-rockstar werewolf hottie, and his connection to Shelby is stronger than she realizes.
As the days grow darker and the school prepares for Holiday break, Austin arrives to explain the real reasons he’s stayed away. Suddenly, Shelby begins to understand her improved senses, her need for moonlight, and her growing hunger. Now trapped at Steinfelder, with its ties to an ancient, bloody brotherhood, Shelby realizes that loving Austin will cost her more than she could have imagined.
A dangerous full moon approaches for Shelby and Austin in this e-book novella sequel to the popular Young Adult romance Never Cry Werewolf.
