Read in April, 2011

(Genre:Teen fiction) KJ has lived and gone to school in the same small town near Yellowstone Park for almost her entire life. She works for her dad who owns a store and runs a hunting/fishing guide business. Her mother died when she was three and her relationship with her dad is strained. When a new boy moves to town for a year so his mother can study the wolves in the park, KJ is drawn into the political and personal feelings/tensions of the local residents about the wolves who have been introduced back into the park. Soon she finds herself in a maelstrom of anger and mistrust, as the residents take sides in the wolf debate.
The writing was good and KJ's teenage voice felt realistic. The challenges of growing up in a small town added an extra layer to the story and connected well to the wolf pack experience.
