A Newbery Honor Book
New York Times Best Seller
“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 best-selling author of A Long Walk to Water)
“This book matters.” (Sara Pennypacker, New York Times best-selling author of Pax)
Despite 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 though her bullying seems isolated at first, it quickly escalate. Toby, a reclusive World War I veteran, soon becomes the target of her attacks. While others have always seen Toby’s strangeness, Annabelle knows only kindness. And as tensions mount in their small community, Annabelle must find the courage to stand as a lone voice for justice.
The brilliantly crafted debut of Newbery Honor – and Scott O’Dell Award – winning author Lauren Wolk (Beyond the Bright Sea, Echo Mountain), 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 history.
