Weaving together complex themes with extraordinary skill, debut author Lauren Wolk has created a book that deserves to be read. Great books change you and Wolf Hollow is a perspective shifting read. It will throw you out of its end papers with your mind wide open.
Following hero Annabelle as she enters into a morally murky adult world, we feel her fear. Grappling with bullies and prejudice within a close-knit community, the black and white of childhood is overshadowed by darker shades of grey, making navigating a path towards integrity and truth increasingly difficult.
A timeless story beautifully placed in an evocative, and brilliantly realised, historical setting.
For ages 9+
