"Fourteen-year-old Linda lives with her parents in the beautiful, austere woods of northern Minnesota, where their nearly abandoned commune stands as a last vestige of a lost counter-culture world. Isolated at home and an outlander at school, Linda is drawn to the enigmatic, attractive Lily and new history teacher Mr. Grierson. When Mr. Grierson is charged with possessing child pornography, the implications of his arrest deeply affect Linda as she wrestles with her own fledgling desires and craving to belong. And then the young Gardner family moves in across the lake and Linda finds herself welcomed into their home as a babysitter for their little boy, Paul. It seems that her life finally has purpose but with this new sense of belonging she is also drawn into secrets she doesn't understand. Over the course of a few days, Linda makes a set of choices that reverberate throughout her life. As she struggles to find a way out of the sequestered world into which she was born, Linda confronts the life-and-death consequences of the things people do-and fail to do-for the people they love. Winner of the McGinnis-Ritchie award for its first chapter, Emily Fridlund's propulsive and gorgeously written History of Wolves introduces a new writer of enormous range and talent"--… (més)

The teenaged Linda has well developed backwoods survival skills and underdeveloped social skills. This resulted from growing up as one of a pack of children in a commune in rural Minnesota, until the commune dissolved and the other kids left with their parents. The pair of adults who remained might have been Linda's birth parents, but their parenting style is so remote and distracted that you can't be surprised if Linda has an attachment disorder.

There's a new teacher in school and a new couple across the lake who don't seem to be there for the fishing. The relationships Linda forms with the newcomers seem promising for her, at first.

The pace of the story kept me engaged, and I liked that clues were dropped at a rate that allowed me to gradually see where events were heading. I think Ms. Fridlund crafted a good story, but I'm confused about why she ended it how and where she did. ( )

I felt a bit let down at the end of this novel -- as if it had been building to a more dramatic conclusion, but then abruptly decided not to go there. ( )

This is very readable; a coming of age tale set in Minnesota. Teenage Linda/ Mattie lives an impoverished rural life; her parents- former members of a cult- seem strange but unexplored.
An outsider at school, she hooks up with a new family across the lake. Young mum Patra is glad of a babysitter as she edits her - often absent - husband's scientific works. And thus Linda becomes close to 4 year old Paul - an appealing child...but is he quitre right? And then Patra's authoritarian,older husband returns...
There are tantalizing mentions of a court case. And there's am inadequately explained scond strand, as a schoolmate falsely accuses a male teacher of abuse...
I'm aftaid the last couple of pages stumped me. What? Why? Completely foxed.
So...very readable indeed...but you finish it mystified. ( )

Gave up chapter sixteen. Strange people. Bizarre conversations that at times no matter how many times I reread I couldn't make sense of. When I thought it couldn't get any worse and I would push through along came chapter fifteen. From how Linda came to be at the cabin, to everyone's interactions, this was just plain weird.
It felt like the author was trying to hard. Knew where she wanted the story to go but didn't know how to get there. ( )

Emily Fridlund has real potential, but it's not fully realized, and certainly not in this book. The timeline is messy for no good reason and many subplots trail off without any resolution. It reminded me a little of The Virgin Suicides, but it's still lacking finesse. ( )

Become conscious for a single moment that Life and intelligence are purely spiritual,—neither in nor of matter,— and the body will then utter no complaints.

—Mary Baker Eddy,
Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures
I won’t be dying after all, not now, but will go on living dizzily hereafter in reality, half-deaf to reality, in the room perfumed by the fire that our inextinguishable will begins.

—Timothy Donnelly, “The New Intelligence”
