Carolyn, A&H Shadowers
This one took time to grow on me, and while it wasn't my favourite I did end up enjoying it. I can see why Wolf Hollow is likened to "To Kill a Mockingbird" - it certainly does echo the classic in its coming-of-age plot, in which a young, rural girl's naivete is troubled as she confronts death, prejudice, and injustice. It comes off as a bit old-fashioned, and at times the plentiful description goes over the top for my taste. However, its themes of bullying and discrimination keep it relevant and I think it would make it an excellent classroom read.
