This was truly a touching story. When I write reviews about books I tell the story but you should read the book for the details. It is about a small girl named Sara that watched her parents unmercifly murdered under her very eyes. The last words her mother told her was to hide so she did. A day later as Sara clung to her mother's dress and cried a She-wolf (Who ironicly lost her cubs to the same man that killed Sara's parents) found her and took her in. The book tells of how Sara grew into a wild woman (She wasn't crazy) and lived with wolves (It explains how wolves are truly not killers of man but loyal family members that have feelings, like when they mourn for lost members and rejoice with their family. They work together as a team and hey, humans kill and eat animals to, you know. That is why humans picked wolves to be the parents of the dog speices. Their loyalty)Anyway and how she mets humans and finds her aunt who had been looking for her ever since her parents were murdered. She avenges her parents death by killing the murderer and has to pick whether she will live with her human family or the wolves. It is spell binding!
THis is book was tottally awesome! i've read it like 40 times and i probably wont stop....Sarah is the perfect mowgli/tarzan female raised by wolves...especially cool is her innocence from lying and cooked meat since all she eats is raw (BLEH!) read this book if you love animal/human crossovers
