Section 1: Plot Summary
Red Moon Rising by Peter Moore is a book about Vampires, Werewulves, and Humans all in one world trying to get along and about how a young character goes through “the change” as every wulf must. In this book, a young wereewulve at birth, but failed genetically changed vampire discovers that even though he has most of the genetic treatments successfully, he will still have to go through "the change." The change happens to every werewulve once a month where they are turned into bloodthirsty, wild, hairy werewulves and are sent off to violent compounds where they are often abused. Werewulves are treated terribly in this society of vampires and humans. Dante has a werewulve dad and a vampire mom who are divorced. He lives with his vampire mom and she had him and her other two daughters and made them all get genetical treatments to remove their werewulve genes. This works for her daughters, but only about half of the treatments are successful for Dante, but they still thought he would not have to go through the change. Just as Dante's life is going great, he has a new human girlfriend of his dreams named emma, he's getting along with everyone at school, and plenty more, he discovers wis werewulve genes are kicking in. When Dante's parents decide to illegally not register him so he will not have to go to the awful compounds, Gunther Hoering finds out and tries to get Dante busted, but when his plan doesn;t work, Gunther tries to kill him. I would explain more but i do not want to give away the ending. Overall this book is in my top 5 books ever read. This books genre would fall under young adult fiction, and fantasy.

Section 4: Social Issue Relevance
In Red Moon Rising many of the Vamps disrespect wulves and bully them due to their ugly appearance and violent nature, whereas the Vamps and humans are clean, neat, and sophisticated. So my social relevance is bullying. A bully is someone who wants to purposely cause harm to someone else. Statistics are showing that bullying is becoming an extreme issue. The types of bullying include verbal, physical, social, and cyber bullying. Verbal bullying is mostly name calling or teasing/mocking. Physical bullying is the traditional form of bullying and involves punching, shoving, hitting, and any other act of violence to cause harm. Social bullying is spreading rumors, breaking up friendships, and all to hurt or harm someone else, and cyber bullying is bullying over the internet, email, texting, tweeting, or any other technologies to hurt or harm others. All of these are bullying whether it’s from calling somebody stupid to punching them in the face. Bullying is typically not a one time thing; usually somebody will bully someone many times repeatedly. Nearly 1 in 3 students is involved in bullying, so if you see it, tell someone. The sources I got this information from are and If you would like to know more about bullying and how to stop it go to either of the following websites.

Section 5: Dramatization of the Book
If I were to making a movie of this book I would choose the following actors/actresses to portray the main characters:
As Dante I would have Taylor Lautner, because he is short and dark haired and has experience playing a werewulve.

As Gunther I would have Robert Pattinson, because he is pale, tall, and has experience playing as a vampire.

As Juliet I would choose Emma Watson because she has a lot of acting experience and fits Juliet’s description with red hair and a human.
