"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
