Wolf Hollow

'Wolf Hollow' is one of those books where you have to get into the book properly before you can enjoy it. I did enjoy it as it brings you closer the characters in the book.
Annabelle, the main character in the book, has lived in Wolf Hollow all her life: it's a quiet place but still scarred by two wars. But when Betty arrives she quickly reveals herself to be cruel and manipulative. She bullies not only the children in her school but the adults of the town. Toby the World War 1 veteran is one of her main targets as he is lonely and has no one to support him, until Annabelle comes along.
I think this book was gripping from the moment I first opened the book as the first three pages talked about an old relative Annabelle looked up to. I think these are always good to throw into stories so it adds extra encouragement for the main character to live and to save the day. I also think it adds a bit of reality to the book as everyone has someone they look up to.
I would recommend this book to people of an older age as some of the words may come across as a bit confusing for younger children(e.g. words like 'converged' and 'imminent').But other than that the book is amazing.
I give this book 5 stars.
