I LOVE this book! It's amazing.
It stars Cassy, a young girl raised by her grandmother who is sent on sudden visits to her mother, Goldie (who is slightly 'away with the faries'). Her gran sends her on one of these vists and she starts having nightmares involving wolves, linked in with Goldie's latest project, a play about wolves. And a plot unwinds...
We read this in class and everyone, even the book haters loved it. The plot is on so many levels and it all come together brilliantly. It was exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat until the end- when I went back and read it five more times!
A must read!

Delightful May 3 2012

Format: Paperback
This missed out on five stars because of a rushed ending, and some annoying dream-sequences.

Otherwise, I loved the character dynamics and the things it said about family, and about how we perceive people and the assumptions we make about them. Also, props for the positive view of unschooling.

"Wolf" is an interesting, intriguing, but sometimes confusing read. The plot is good, unexpected, and strong to the end. The characters are well-constructed and believable. This book held my intrest to the last word. Gillian Cross brings a poetic and mystical quality to her books as only British writers seem to do(funny, huh?:). My favorite thing about the book had to be the way Gillian Cross used wolves to symbolize people and how the blood-thirsty, man-eating wolves of our nightmares are not the real wolves of nature, but the wolf inside of us. Overall, a very interesting and thought-provoking book. One of my favorites!:)
I would like to recommend the following books by Gillian Cross:
Roscoes Leap (fair warning: don't read before bed!)
Born of the Sun (very intense adventure story)
Tight Rope (haven't got it yet but sounds really good)
On the Edge ( haven't got that either, but also sounds good)

A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A girl called Cassy lives with her nan and she is called away to see her mother who is always moving house. She finds her mother, but Cassy also comes across two other men who live with her. They make wolf masks and put a type of explosive in them. . . . . .

I would recommend this book to Year 8 or 9 students.
