Wolf Hollow

Annabelle has lived in Wolf Hollow all her life: a quiet place, still scared by two World Wars. But when cruel, manipulative Betty arrives in town, Annabelle's calm world is shattered, along with everything she has ever known about right and wrong.

When Betty disappears suspicion falls on strange, gentle loner Toby. As Wolf Hollow turns against him, and tension quickly mounts, Annabelle must do everything in her power to protect Toby and to find Betty before it's too late.

This book was very moving for me it also related towards two poems that I've studying for my English exam, which are Hitcher and Our Sharpeville. The reason for this is as in Hitcher it talks about a peaceful hitch hiker being murdered for being different and for the stress of the driver. This connects deeply towards the character Toby as he's judged so quickly for actions he never did.
Whilst Our Sharpeville is more to do with the whole aspect of this book, which is to understand, exactly what are the truths and lies in life and how people are too quick to take action for others and that is shown in Our Sharpeville as the little girl is taken aback from her grandmother so that she won't have to see the violence of these men outside her window.

My favourite part of this book is the last chapter as Lauren
Wolk portrays so much emotion through the vivid imagery of Annabelle alone on that hill trying to evaluate the horrors over the last month give me real shivers and almost made me cry.

I really enjoyed this book and I hope the author writes a sequel for Wolf Hollow.
