At this high school, instead of jocks and nerds, the students are divided into predators and prey. At a high school where the students are literally divided into predators and prey, it's personal relationships that maintain the fragile peace. Who among them is a Beastar-an academic and social role model destined to become a leader in a society naturally rife with mistrust? After a Drama Club member is mauled during rehearsal, gray wolf Legoshi finds a clue to the identity of the murderer of his alpaca friend Tem. In the wake of the incident, when the school administration segregates classrooms and disbands interspecies clubs, the absence of red deer Louis's leadership is keenly felt. Plus, more tales of Legoshi's tragic childhood and family. For readers ages 16 and up.
