Description - This Is Shyness by Leanne Hall

A guy who howls. A girl on a mission to forget. In the suburb of Shyness, where the sun doesn't rise and the border crackles with a strange energy, Wolfboy meets a stranger at the Diabetic Hotel. She tells him her name is Wildgirl, and she dares him to be her guide through the endless night. But then they are mugged by the sugar-crazed Kidds. And what plays out is moving, reckless...dangerous. There are things that can only be said in the dark. And one long night is time enough to change your life.

Book Review: This Is Shyness by Leanne Hall - Reviewed by (18 Jul 2011)

A mysterious, beautiful boy with a scruffy appearance and tendency to howl introduces himself as Wolfboy. A fearless, captivating girl with an adventurous spirit insists on being called Wildgirl. In one night these two are drawn together with only a look. But this is no ordinary night, for in the suburb of Shyness there exists only darkness and the night, and Wildgirl has chosen Wolfboy to be her guide to this endless night.

In their separate lives Wolfboy and Wildgirl are both fighting a darkness, but in the cover of night they are able see past the cool, calm and fearless persona each have adopted to reveal the pain, insecurity and loneliness felt on the inside. After encountering wide-eyed tarsiers, sugar-crazed kids, a gang of land pirates, an enchanting gypsy and one very dangerous doctor, Wolfboy and Wildgirl are able to find in each other a light in the darkness.

This Is Shyness is an urban fantasy that explores the darkness, both literally and figuratively. In a suburb that never sees the sun it is easy to feel as though the world is nothing more then a dream, easy to believe that monsters do exist. But in the darkness there can also be found a sense of freedom, deeper understanding and total acceptance. In the darkness can also be found love. But just as every night must end, everyone will find a ray of light in this story of night.

Book Review: This Is Shyness by Leanne Hall - Reviewed by (15 Jul 2011)

A girl and a boy. For one night, both put aside their fears and troubles. They want to forget. The girl dares the boy. He refuses at first. But then accepts. The girl is fascinating to him. And he to her. He tells her his name is Wolfboy. She tells him hers is Wildgirl. But in the night of a strange place, called Shyness, where the sun resists shining, even for a moment, things that you would never expect to happen, do just that. They have a story, they like each other, and over the night, a crazy, unforgettable night, they fall closer and closer together. They go on an adventure, to get something back. To make a change.
