Sophie, Our Lady's Abingdon (OLA)
Wolf Hollow is an amazing book set in the Second World War in America. Annabelle lives on a quiet farm in the country where she is happy until a new, mean girl, Betty turns up. Tragic accidents start happening. First, Annabelle's friend is injured, then her brother receives a deep cut in his head. Annabelle blames Betty but she claims that it was a gentle wanderer Toby's fault. Then Betty goes missing. The blame instantly goes to Toby but Annabelle isn't so sure. She hides Toby in her barn, but as the plot untwists there is more than meets the eye. Annabelle must find Betty, and prove Toby's innocence, before it's too late.
The book shows how there is more to people than they show. Throughout the book, Annabelle learns about the difference about lying and telling the truth. The book has a powerful meaning and teaches you many lessons.
My favourite character is Annabelle because she is seemingly quiet but actually she is smarter than the adults. She is also very observant and notices things that other people would dismiss. My least favourite character is Andy because he is mean and very unhelpful when people need his help.
Little things that the characters do end up effecting the mystery, e.g. the village operator ear-wigging interesting conversations on the phone and the teacher locking up a room in the schoolhouse before someone said they had been in there.
I would give this book four out of five stars because it is very deep and how the plot unwinds is clever. You can tell that the author has thought out the story plan very well because of the small details. I also liked one of the first messages, "The year I turned twelve I learnt how to lie." That message continues throughout the book.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes mystery and adventure.
