Wolf Hollow - Lauren Wolk

Annabelle’s quiet life in 1943 rural Pennsylvania takes a sudden turn when Betty Glengarry arrives. Betty was sent to Wolf Hollow (Dutton, $16.99) to live with her grandparents because she is “incorrigible.” Cruel and manipulative, she bullies Annabelle and most of the other children. When Betty suddenly disappears, the town suspects Toby, Wolf Hollow’s itinerant World War I veteran. Although Toby may be quiet and strange, eleven-year-old Annabelle knows that he is also gentle and kind, and she determines to defend him. Author Lauren Wolk examines the unexpected consequences of telling the truth and telling lies, how appearances can be deceiving, and how difficult it can be to stand up for what’s right. Wolk’s beautiful and evocative writing conjures a past time and place, but the themes of courage and justice have timeless relevance. Ages 10-12.
