Annabelle is a good realistic middle grade heroine. The book is set in rural Pennsylvania in the early 1940s. A blonde-haired, blue-eyed city girl (Betty Glengarry) moves to town to live with her grandparents and begins to bully and threaten Annabelle. When a local recluse WWI veteran (Toby Jordan) comes to Annabelle's rescue, Betty turns vicious and blames Toby. When Betty disappears and Toby cannot be located, the worst is assumed. But, the conclusions are wrong and Annabelle acts much older and wiser than her young age of 11 would suggest, and ultimately teaches a lesson to all. ( )

The recent warm review of Lauren Wolk's latest novel, Echo Mountain, in the New York Times sent me to this one. We are still waiting for our public libraries to reopen, and Wolf Hollow was available as an e-book, and it was a pleasure. Numerous people have compared it to To Kill a Mockingbird, which is fair enough: narrated by Annabelle, a young, initially naive and sheltered girl in a close family, facing up to life's darkness, unfairness, and fears. Set during World War II in rural Pennsylvania, the war seems far away and almost theoretical, but there are gold stars being sewn onto a community flag, and the local boys tend to not bother with school as they figure they'll go kill some Germans soon. And a "shell-shocked" (as the terminology was then) veteran of the Great War (before they knew there'd be a second one) roams the hills and woods, lugging broken rifles and taking photos with a borrowed camera. Then a new girl arrives, blond and pretty, in blue and white gingham, sent to live with her grandparents because she is "incorrigible." She's more than that. Betty is deliberately, sadistically cruel, tormenting other kids and animals with threats and physical violence. Thrown rocks, strung sharpened wires, a lost eye... and then she disappears. Annabelle takes it upon herself to find out what actually happened to her, befriending and sheltering the gentle, scarred veteran along the way. It reminded me in some ways of Mary Hayley Bell's sweet and poignant novel, Whistle Down the Wind (for pity's sake, forget Andrew Lloyd Webber and watch the old British filmversion instead) - children who protect a wandering fugitive in a barn, among the hay. Bell's children truly think their fugitive is literally Jesus come back; in Wolf Hollow, he is only a carpenter from Maryland (yeah, that was a little heavy-handed for me). Annabelle's story is indeed exactly as the opening sentence suggests: she learns how to lie. But she also learns when, and why, and when to stop, and when neither lies nor the truth can save you.

Volk is a gifted writer, and there are lovely passages about a farm kitchen, about horses in a pasture, about beets (!), about the woods and poison ivy, and little brothers. There might be a little too much of "suddenly I knew where she must be," and conversations described but not related that abruptly leave a reader outside what Annabelle is thinking. The voice and the language are adult and complex - lovely as it is, it begs the question: to whom is Annabelle telling this story, and when? There has been some criticism of the novel as not actually being appropriate for middle-graders - it is dark, there is violence and death and foolish, unreliable, damaged adults. I'm of the school who buys C.S. Lewis's remark (though not many others) that "A children's story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children's story." So I applaud Volk's decision to write about and for children, and not leave out the scary parts of life, in a thoughtful, serious way. I recently picked up a YA novel about a girl who had been kidnapped, raped, and tortured, and then witnessed her captor commit suicide before her eyes. If that's fair game, this one isn't even close. I look forward to Echo Mountain. ( )

This book is a fabulous read aloud for 5th-8th graders. It is a historical fiction book set in a tiny town when there was a one room school house. The main character has a bully (who is actually a bully to many people) but when the bully goes missing, she begins to feel empathy for her until she discovers what happened to the bully. There are many opportunities for cliff hangers in this book and many points will leave your students saying "ONE MORE CHAPTER!" ( )

Annabelle lives on a farm in rural Pennsylvania during WWII. They live in a tight-knit community with a one room school and party line telephone. Everyone knows everyone, except for Toby, a WWI veteran and drifter, living on an abandoned farm nearby. When a new girl moves to town and decides to make things tough for Annabelle, Toby gets involved. The bully seeks revenge on the innocent but mysterious man and the community begins to take sides.

This book was excellent, with a tremendous mix of suspense and emotions. I could NOT put it down! ( )

In a Pennsylvania farming community during the second World War, Annabelle is eleven and dealing with a bully. Betty seems determined to make life difficult for Annabelle, and will lie maliciously when it suits her. When another girl is badly hurt by a thrown rock, a man named Toby who is known to be odd, is accused. But Annabelle is sure that it must have been Betty, and doesn't know how to prove it to community members quick to judge.

Annabelle is a good narrator of a young girl figuring out the world and who she wants to be - she's not perfect, but she has a sense of justice and frustration when it isn't met. The family dynamics between her and her brothers, her parents, and their extended family is well done. I could see this book working well for a classroom or book discussion. ( )
