Wolf Hollow

Wolf Hollow is all about a girl named Annabelle and how her life is shredded to pieces by Betty, the new girl in town. The book's central theme is bullying. It's a timely read for many young people passing through adolescence.
I really liked the book not only because of the powerful connections I could forge with the main characters but also as it raises awareness of the struggle some people may be ensnared in. It's a straightforward, easy read on one level, packed full of emotion on another. The reader experiences love, tension, anger and even mystery as to the past of Betty and what reasons she has to justify her actions.
The analogy of Betty as a wolf was skilfully woven into the tale. Her character's like a wolf. And when she's trapped in the well after falling down there, it's just like the wolves in the hollow.
I really enjoyed the book, especially the conclusion. The author opts for a shocking one. I'm glad she risked this rather than play safe with the traditional happy ending.
