Blood and Chocolate is by Annette Curtis Klause. Vivian is a werewolf. Her pack has moved to a populated area after her father and several other packs members were burned to death when a member of their pack began killing humans. Now they are leaderless and fractured. Vivian tries to stay out of pack politics and falls in love with a human boy. She decides to tell him her secret and finds she has endangered her own life and that of her pack when humans begin to die again. A harsh, but tender, tale of coming of age and learning how to accept what you are.
