Tell the Wolves I'm Home
This Alex Award winning story is about June, an awkward, intelligent fourteen-year-old girl who adored her uncle Finn. The story is told from June’s point of view. June is a loner who likes to walk in the woods and pretend she’s living in the Middle Ages. The novel explores her relationships with Finn, her often difficult older sister, and Finn’s boyfriend Toby whom she gets to know and secretly befriends after Finn dies of AIDS. I don’t think I will ever forget this wonderfully unique novel. A friend told me it was the best book she read last year, and I wonder if I will discover one I like more this year. I kind of doubt it.
