Tessa McCaide has a unique talent for getting into trouble. Then again, it isn’t easy for a girl with visions to ignore what she sees. Luckily Tessa and her family are leaving California and moving halfway across the country, giving her the perfect opportunity to leave her reputation as “Freaky Tessa” behind.
But Tessa doesn’t realize that kissing the wrong guy in her new Texas town could land her in far more trouble than she ever imagined. Like being forced to attend St. Ailbe’s Academy, a secret boarding school for werewolves.
Even if the wrong guy did accidentally turn her into one of “them” and doom her to attending the weirdest high school ever, Tessa can’t help her growing attraction to the mysterious Dastien Laurent.
When vampires attack St. Alibe’s and her visions pinpoint an enemy in their midst, Tessa realizes that boy drama and her newfound canine tendencies might just be the least of her problems.
Becoming Alpha begins when Tessa and her family move to Texas after her dad accepts a new job there. They actually have a few secrets they have been keeping from Tessa, but she soon starts to learn things she never knew when a kiss from a boy who she can't get out of her head changes her life for ever. Now she's forced to go to a "werewolf" school and figure out what the heck happened to her, and is to continue to happen.
But there are a whole lot of problems she never thought she would encounter a long the way.
This book wasn't all that great, but not bad either. I liked the plot line of the story. And I loved the interaction between the heroine and hero, but other than that I just felt bored at times with it. And frustrated. There were several things that frustrated me about the book, and I felt like it didn't really end on a good conclusion. So I'm not sure I will be reading the next one, but I still enjoyed this one for the most part because it had a unique story.
