Wolf Hollow

Growing up in the shadows cast by two world wars, Annabelle has lived a mostly quiet, steady life in her small Pennsylvania town. Until the day new student Betty Glengarry walks into her class. Betty quickly reveals herself to be cruel and manipulative, and while her bullying seems isolated at first, things quickly escalate, spinning out of control—until she mysteriously disappears.

As the community searches for Betty and days pass, fingers begin to point toward Toby, a World War I veteran who carries deep and secret scars. But while others see his strangeness, Annabelle knows only kindness. She will soon need to find the courage to stand as a lone voice of justice as tensions mount.

Brilliantly crafted, Wolf Hollow is a haunting tale of America at a crossroads and a time when one girl’s resilience and strength help to illuminate the darkest corners of our history.

Praise for Wolf Hollow

“Trusting its readers implicitly with its moral complexity, Wolk’s novel stuns.”
