Overview

It's the mid-1980s and best friends, Beth and Kelly, totally can't wait to ditch their claustrophobic junior high and move on up to the "promised land" of their local high school. But their ninth grade year doesn't get any easier - just a lot more interesting - when they discover and eventually befriend the town's legendary Wolf Boy. There's more to Wolf Boy's story than the girls first imagine. Then again, everyone has a story - Beth, Kelly, their friends and families - and everyone's story contains a bit of wolf.


This first novel explores the promise and the limits of both friendship and families. It's a story of nature versus nurture played out in a teen's world of pop culture references, snarky humor, and half-understood sexual banter.


While this book's language and topics (coming of age, friendship, death, abusive relationships, sex) are not out of place in a Young Adult genre book, the book is recommended for mature readers only.
