Wolf Hollow, where the story takes place, is a children's novel by Lauren Wolk in which Annabelle McBride recounts the events of her twelfth year in which she contends with Betty, a bully, and defends Toby, a haunted World War I veteran, from Betty's lies.
The novel is beautifully written and the contrast between Betty and Annabelle is charismatic for many people. From the start of the book the author manged to portray the characters personality which allowed the reader to form their own opinions in their mind. In my opinion Annabelle was portrayed as a mature young adult, whereas Betty was portrayed as a spiteful girl. Toby was shell-shocked and haunted by his past.
I would have liked it if the book was more gripping, but I did like the writing style. In my opinion, the story would have been improved if the story line was slightly more lively.
To summarize, Wolf Hollow is a mature beautifully written book that portrayed the characters amazingly but was slightly slow and boring. However, I really liked how as the story progresses, the relationships between the characters are really emphasized.
