Season 1, Episode 1 (Shifter High)

FREE on Kindle

In a high school full of shifters, it's the one inquisitive human who poses the biggest threat. When a human is the only applicant for town veterinarian and moves to Shifterville with his teenaged daughter, Amelia, the town residents conspire to keep the humans in their midst from discovering their secret. If only they can keep Melvin away from Amelia. Melvin Moose has a problem. Anytime a girl gets too close, his antlers go on walkabout, popping out of his human head at the most inopportune moments. As if that weren’t bad enough, a human girl just enrolled at his school, and if she catches sight of his unruly rack, it’s all over for Shifterville. Warning: This book contains typical teen language, which does include the occasional swear word. It is also full of rampant, teen hormones and the subsequent fallout.

“I sat up all night reading A.J. Culey's tale. The Trouble with Antlers is definitely one of the most interesting and unique books I have ever read. Set in modern times, with social media often being used by characters in the book, it is cleverly written while adding a major plus factor to the already awkward moments a teenager experiences while trying to interact with somebody they like for the very first time. Melvin seeks out any solution he can find, just so he won't sprout antlers in front of the girl he likes, showing a strong determination to be in control of a situation which seems insurmountable and had become a real problem - not only for him but for the rest of the school. I very much enjoyed The Trouble with Antlers and recommend it to readers over the age of 15 who enjoy a dose of paranormal and adventure, wrapped in fun and humor from the first page to the last.”
