Cressida, Our Lady's Abingdon (OLA)
Wolf Hollow is set in America during the second world war. Annabelle is happy living in the quiet countryside until she meets Betty, who hurts her. Then horrible things keep happening to the people she knows. First a stone blinds her best friend, and then her brother gets a deep cut on his head from sharp wire. Betty claims that she is innocent and that it was actually Toby, an ex-soldier who wanders around the hills, but Annabelle knows that he wouldn't hurt anyone. Betty goes missing and everyone blames Toby because they believed Betty. Annabelle has to find Betty and prove that Toby is innocent before it is too late.
The book has many good lessons in it about lying and telling the truth. It shows that there is more to people than you see. Wolf Hollow has a very powerful message behind it. In the book it also shows how the smallest details may be the most important. Like the village phone operator always listening in to conversations.
My favourite character is Annabelle because she is very smart and observant. She is much cleverer than most of the adults in the book. My least favourite character is Betty because she is mean for no reason and blames an innocent person for the horrible things she did.
I would give this book 8 out of 10 because it wasn't as captivating as some of the other books but there was still a really good plot about lying. I would recommend this book for people 8+ who like a good mystery story.
