    Wolf hollow

    Wolf hollow

    Wolk, Lauren.

    A young girl's kindness, compassion, and honesty overcome bullying. Critics agree—Wolf Hollow is the most powerful middle grade debut of the year!★ An NPR Best Book of 2016 ★ A Booklist Best Book of 2016★ An Entertainment Weekly Best Middle Grade Book of 2016★ A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of 2016★ A Shelf Awareness Best Book of 2016★ A School Library Journal Best Book of 2016★ A Wall Street Journal Best Children's Book of 2016"This exquisite debut confronts injustice and doesn't flinch." —People "[A] powerful debut . . . beautifully written." —The Wall Street Journal"Wrenching and true. . . . comparisons to Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird will abound. But Wolk gives us her own story—one full of grace and stark, brutal beauty." —The New York Times Book Review"When reviewers draw a parallel between Mockingbird and Lauren Wolk's Wolf Hollow, they are being neither hyperbolic, nor lazy. They are merely doing justice to Wolk's beautiful story." — 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 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, strength, and compassion help to illuminate the darkest corners of our history. "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"An evocative setting, memorable characters, a searing story: Wolf Hollow has stayed with me long after I closed the book. It has the feel of an instant classic." —Linda Sue Park, Newbery Medalist and New York Times bestselling author
