Francesca Lia Block (born December 3, 1962) is an American writer of adult and young-adult literature: fiction, short stories, screenplays and poetry.

No, the great failing of The Frenzy is laziness. The Frenzy tells the story of Liv, a girl who's always felt like an outsider among her peers and family ever since the chaos that occurred when she was thirteen, chaos that lead to her being taken to a shrink and her family and her growing even farther apart.

This is the story of two girls, racing through space like shadow and light

But this is what I could not give up: I could not give up myselfPsyche has known Love-scented with jasmine and tasting of fresh oranges. Yet he is fleeting and fragile, lost to her too quickly. This is the story of two girls, racing through space like shadow and light. A photo negative, together they make the perfect image of a girl.

The curse that caused the frenzy four years ago. And that may cause it again, all too soon. While Corey and Liv’s love binds them together, Liv’s dark secret threatens to tear them apart as she struggles to understand who-or what-she really is. And by the light of the full moon, the most dangerous secrets bare their claws. To read this book, upload an EPUB or FB2 file to Bookmate.

She licked my face and stared at me with a miserable cockeyed gaze that made my heart feel like her bleeding tail. There was a huge Great Dane mix that hardly fit in the cage.

The curve of her hips sheathed tight in something sheer and silver, glimmering beneath the narrow swoon of her waist. She rises up from the water, the drops slicking her breasts, beading tremulous at her nipples. She tosses her head and smiles at him; her mouth is like the shadowy place nestled under the fabric that he knows he can never reach.

Love is a werewolf, influenced by the moon and terror, and always about to change.

Liv has a secret.

Something happened to her when she was thirteen. Something that changed everything. Liv knows she doesn’t belong anymore—not in her own skin, not in her family . . . not anywhere. The only time she truly feels like herself is when she’s with her boyfriend, Corey, and in the woods that surround her town.

But in the woods, a mysterious woman watches Liv. In the woods, a pack of wild boys lurks. In the woods, Liv learns about the curse that will haunt her forever. The curse that caused the frenzy four years ago. And that may cause it again, all too soon.

While Corey and Liv’s love binds them together, Liv’s dark secret threatens to tear them apart as she struggles to understand who—or what—she really is. And by the light of the full moon, the most dangerous secrets bare their claws. . . .

I absolutely love every single thing Francesca Liam Block does. I wasn't sure if I would still feel that way as a grown woman reading a book like this, but I did. This author has a way of completely pulling you in and never letting go!

The narration on this girl-werewolf book was more . . . traditionally coherent than most Block books are. The descriptions were the usual--our protagonist, Liv, has waist-length fiery red hair and bright green eyes, and her mother was a beauty queen and always looks perfect, etc. But Block protagonists are usually sort of archetypal, so I'm more forgiving when the girl with the fiery temper is of course also a fiery redhead who happens to be fighting the wolf inside her. Another thing that Block did differently this time was give most of her characters fairly ordinary names. Okay, we have a dude named Pace, but Olivia's pretty normal for one of her protagonists, and we even have a Michael and a Joe. How'd that happen?

Some of the revelations and clues to elements of the ending were very obvious from the beginning, but that doesn't mean it was clear how it was going to end. The kind of awesome thing about how convoluted Francesca Lia Block books sometimes are is that they don't try to make everything tie up pretty and go somewhere too obvious, so while some of the personal elements that were set up as revelations were clear a mile away, the plot wasn't. I liked that Liv was living in a realistic world that nevertheless contained werewolves, and that their brutal side was not downplayed, and that the fashion and decorating descriptions were kept to a minimum to let Liv's personality up to the surface. I liked that she had a gay best friend and that they posed as each other's love interest because the truth would hurt their parents, though I hate how so many gay kids in YA fiction end up the way Pace did. Liv's boyfriend Corey was another pleasant surprise--I liked her description of intimacy with him and the way she was afraid of herself for his sake.

The cover is beautiful, it has movement, and interest, all the things the story lacks in abundance.

A quick summary. Liv is a 17 year old werewolf. Who's in denial. She's weird and awkward, but Liv finds a place to belong with Pace her best friend and Corey her boyfriend. Liv lives a lie hiding who and what she is from everyone even herself. Her mom is the perfect former beauty queen huntress, to Liv's abnormal freakish physical qualities and vegetarian tendencies. Liv doesn't want to face what she is, or trust her boyfriend to still love her if he knew she was different. But a mysterious family of werewolves has been keeping an eye on her for years. With their appearance she will have to confront her fears.

With the substance in this book I find it hard to even write this review. I don't know where to begin. Ugh, I finished this story thinking, Can I get my Money Back? It seems like Block wanted to take these commonly used ideas and story lines and do something different. But it came off under planned and patchy and just failed. I suppose I have to mention that this book is really short, maybe too short. The story could have used more development, there's barely any backstory to a lot of the threads. The conclusions felt limp. They did make sense, but I don't feel Block elaborated enough on anything, especially Pace's romance, or end. The story line about the werewolf family and Victor was like an after thought, hardly worth mentioning, but could have become a great love triangle. I also found the romance in this book weak. We enter the story when everything great about a romance has already happened, not that it mattered the way they came together was pretty anti climatic anyway. Liv had already made up her mind, she had known and been with Corey for years, so there was no wooing, no falling in love or challenge from another beau. It was really a little bit of angst, apprehension, then a lot of sex. The whole book seemed more like an outline or summary for a book in the process of being written. I found the Frenzy anything but what the title suggests. It was flat and depressing.
