Wolf Hollow

I started reading Wolf Hollow one morning when I woke up early and wanted to read until I fell asleep. Three hours later I finished it. It is a gripping story and beautifully written. Themes like the power of public perception and judgement based on cliché are dealt with subtly and make the reader think about how they might react in similar situations. While the story unfolds with `cliff hanger' moments they didn't make me or the storyline feel manipulated. Like many others, I could see parallels with To Kill a Mockingbird in both the method of telling the story and the story itself but this is in no way derivative, just an equally good piece of writing. Highly recommended to anyone of any age who enjoys a good story well told.
