â[A]Â powerfulÂ debutÂ . . . beautifully written.â âThe Wall Street Journal
âWrenching and true. . . .Â comparisons to Harper Lee'sÂ To Kill a MockingbirdÂ will abound. But Wolk gives us her own storyâoneÂ full of grace and stark, brutal beauty.â âThe New York Times Book Review
âWhen reviewers draw a parallel betweenÂ MockingbirdÂ and Lauren Wolk'sÂ Wolf Hollow,Â they are being neither hyperbolic, nor lazy. They are merely doing justice to Wolk's beautiful story.â â NPR, Best Books of 2016
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 Tobyâs 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,Â Wolf HollowÂ is a haunting tale of America at a crossroads and a time when one girlâs resilience, strength, and compassion help to illuminate the darkest corners of our history.
âThe honesty ofÂ Wolf HollowÂ will just about shred your heart, but Annabelleâs courage and compassion will restore it to you, fuller than before.Â This book matters.â âSara Pennypacker, New York Times bestselling author ofÂ Pax
âAn evocative setting, memorable characters, a searing story:Â Wolf HollowÂ has stayed with me long after I closed the book. It has the feel of an instant classic."Â âLinda Sue Park, Newbery Medalist andÂ New York TimesÂ bestselling author
