Just ask Sam Woroniecki. Since pissing off the wrong old lady, he’s been forced to live as a hideous beast… wings, claws, tail, and all. He’s only got a few weeks left to break the curse, but he’s resigned himself to the fact that he probably won’t.
Still, he doesn’t exactly want to spend the rest of his life locked up with his guardian, so he takes matters into his own mutated hands and makes a run for it. Camping out in the woods and scaring hikers isn’t such a bad life, is it?
But when he meets Tegan, a lonely girl who seems to see past his monstrous appearance, he starts to think he might have a chance at breaking the curse after all.
That is, if he can keep her overprotective father from killing him first.
