The Teen Book Club will discuss Secondhand Shadow by Elizabeth Belyeu.

 

Publisher’s Summary:It's supposed to be a symbiotic relationship: the Shadow serves and protects the human Lumi, the Lumi feeds and cares for the Shadow. But when Damon's Lumi died young and severed the bond between them, he declined to go with her like a good little Shadow. Yes, it hurts. Yes, he's cold and hungry all the time. And yes, his own people call him an abomination. But for the first time, Damon's life is his own, and he's never going back. Or so he thinks, until he meets Naomi, a pregnant college student... and bonds to her as his new Lumi. Which has never happened to a Shadow before. Naomi has enough problems on her plate, juggling college and a crappy survival job, preparing for a baby, and getting over her cheating ex-husband. The last thing she needs is a dark, brooding fellow like Damon depending on her physically and emotionally, and hating her for it. But a vigilante among Damon's people has his sights set on Naomi - and they both know Damon is her only chance for survival.
