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.
Set in the distinctive wilderness lake country of northern Minnesota, which has one of the highest wolf populations in the world, this middle grade novel follows a 12-year-old girl and her 7-year-old brother as they leave their California foster home to spend a summer with their long-lost uncle.
