Description


The honesty of "Wolf Hollow" will just about shred your heart, but Annabelle's courage and compassion will restore it to you, fuller than before. This book matters. Sara Pennypacker, New York Times bestselling author of "Pax"
Growing up in the shadows cast by two world wars, Annabelle has lived a mostly quiet, steady life in her small Pennsylvania town. Until the day new student Betty Glengarry walks into her class. Betty quickly reveals herself to be cruel and manipulative, and while her bullying seems isolated at first, things quickly escalate, and reclusive World War I veteran Toby becomes a target of her attacks. While others have always seen Toby's strangeness, Annabelle knows only kindness. She will soon need to find the courage to stand as a lone voice of justice as tensions mount.
Brilliantly crafted, "Wolf Hollow" is a haunting tale of America at a crossroads and a time when one girl's resilience and strength help to illuminate the darkest corners of our history.

Trusting its readers implicitly with its moral complexity, Wolk's novel stuns. "Kirkus," starred review
"The narrative is powerful, complex, and lifelike . . . a truly moving debut. "School Library Journal," starred review
"Wolk movingly expresses Annabelle's loss of innocence through the honest, clear voice of her protagonist. "Publishers Weekly," starred review
"Perfectly pitched to be used in classrooms in conjunction with"To Kill a Mockingbird." "Booklist," starred review.
