WOLF HOLLOW, by Lauren Wolk

wolf

The story: New girl in town Betty is a bully, and Annabelle is one of her chosen victims: Annabelle and–when blame starts to circle around for Betty’s almost criminal meanness–the shell-shocked vagabond everyone calls Toby. No matter how Annabelle tries, she can’t convince the people around her of the truth…not even when Betty goes missing, and Toby is blamed. If she tries to help Toby, does she really become an accessory to a crime?

 

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Here’s a story for readers who like historical fiction, as long as you don’t mind an ending that’s not exactly happy.  Cuz real life is that way sometimes.
