Wolf Hollow

Wolf Hollow is the story of 12-year-old Annabel in her journey to learning how to lie. It explores the issues of bullying and judging others. The book sums up how life can be messy. It is never black and white. It is grey. One of the characters is Annabel’s Aunt Lily. She is very pious and correct but actually is the most judgemental and unforgiving. When she thinks no one is looking, she is far from morally perfect. I learnt about life in Pennsylvania in the 1940’s. The author’s descriptions were so vivid and imaginative that I could feel myself in the place that she was describing. It was a very well written and gripping story. It left me wanting to read more of such a high standard of writing. She has such a wide diversity of techniques and you could tell in her writing that she was extremely knowledgeable of where she was writing about. It was well researched and had accurate descriptions. It also held that moral dimension, analysing the nature of truth. Is it ever right to lie? Does the end justify the means?
