Wolf Hollow by Lauren Wolk
Grades: 5+
Rating: ♦♦♦♦♦
One of the best books I have read in quite some time, Wolf Hollow is a beautifully written and gripping story set in the shadow of WWII. When a bully moves to town events are set in motion that put Annabelle’s loyalty and sense of what is right to the test. Reminiscent of To Kill a Mockingbird, this suspenseful tale is a must read.

Quite a few excellent middle-grade books have been written about WWII recently and this one did not disappoint. When Anton’s family is forced to flee their Ukrainian hometown, they hide in a network of underground caves. The fast-paced story unfolds through the narration of Anton and the German officer determined to make the country Judenfrei.
