* “A little gem of a book for all wild-hearted lovers of the natural world.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Julie of the Wolves meets Hatchet in this middle grade novel that follows twelve-year-old Nika and her seven-year-old brother, Randall, as they leave their California foster home to spend a summer with their long-lost uncle. There she finds an orphaned wolf pup in a cave, whose mother has been shot.

This compelling first novel explores themes of searching for family and finding a balance between caring for—and leaving alone—wild animals.
