A girl and the wolves who love her embark on a rescue mission through Russian wilderness in this lyrical tale from the author of the acclaimed Rooftoppers and Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms.
Feo's life is extraordinary. Her mother trains domesticated wolves to be able to fend for themselves in the snowy wilderness of Russia, and Feo is following in her footsteps to become a wolf wilder. She loves taking care of the wolves, especially the three who stay at the house because they refuse to leave Feo, even though they've already been wilded. But not everyone is enamored with the wolves or with the fact that Feo and her mother are turning them wild. And when her mother is taken captive, Feo must travel through the cold, harsh woods to save her - and learn from her wolves how to survive.
From the author of Rooftoppers, which Booklist called "a glorious adventure", and Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms, which VOYA called "a treasure of a book", comes an enchanting novel about love and resilience.

I absolutely loved this novel. I tore through these pages like a mad woman. As I slammed the novel shut each time something horrific or startling moved me, my husband would ask, “What happened to the wolves now?” I was enchanted by this story. Mesmerized by the bond between Feo and the wolves, I was...
Great children's novel. Great characters, well-written, and the wolves are well-researched. The plot and worldbuilding is simplistic and doesn't hold up to scrutiny, but that's to be expected with this intended age group. -Lyr YAY WOLVES!!! :D PLEASE MORE?? -Sophie
"Once upon a time there was a dark and stormy girl..." Feo is fierce and impetuous and I love this girl so much. This is little red ridinghood needed: the wolves are on her side. Like Lyra Silvertongue she can be a bit much, but that's because I was brought up be a good girl, and much harm it has d...
