Red Rider's Hood by Neal Shusterman
When Red gets to his grandmother's house he finds her locked in the basement and Wolves gang leader Cedric in her place waiting to steal the money Red is bringing her. Red's grandmother tells Red that Cedric is part of a group of werewolves who had supposedly been eliminated by her and Red's grandfather many years before. With a full moon approaching, Red goes to Cedric and tells him he wants to join the gang and be turned into a werewolf so that he can gather inside information. But as Red spends more time with the gang he begins to feel at home with them and feels torn in his loyalty. Does he want to help his grandmother kill all the werewolves or does he want to join the group and acquire power permanently?
