Wolf Hollow

Wolf Hollow book review

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It was a very different read and genre to books I normally consume but it worked for me and I liked it. The book had a slow start but then got increasingly better as I carried on. By the middle of the book I was reading it nonstop and finished it within days.

Wolf Hollow is a book about 10 year old Annabelle and her boring and average life. “When a cruel and manipulative girl arrives” it changes that completely. From what was once a calm and peaceful town shifted for Annabelle as soon as this new character arrives into the story.

Betty is a bully and likes violence. She makes Annabelle live in fear and pain. Betty changes from a bully to something much worse.... a liar.

Another character who is in this novel is Toby. He came to the village after the war and has been strange since. No one really knows who he is and why he is there. But when a rock is thrown at a German, Betty frames Toby and as a result of this Annabelle feels the need to prove his innocence. Then Betty disappears ... I wonder who the main suspect is?

Annabelle and Betty are completely opposite characters in this story. One is kind, the other evil. One cunning, one clever and finally one of them is truthful and the other a liar.

I would deeply encourage readers from the age 12-15 to read this book. This gives a small insight to bullying and how to deal with it. Whilst doing that it is also a fascinating read and I would rate it 4/5 stars.
