    This is a bizarre story at times, swirling elements of fantasy together with very real issues that have faced and continue to face people today, but somehow Wolf creates a strangely engaging plot of a girl whose life is anything but perfect The characters are unconventional yet simple and easy to relate to, and the reoccurring imagery of wolves and fairytales bring a dark sort of charm to what might otherwise be a very average middle grade novel.

    This book has left an odd lasting impression on me.I remember the vaguest of outlines I remember the pages of italicized text driving me mad at age 8 And I remember my determination to finish a book titled Wolf As they were my favorite animal and current obsession child things Some of the imagery of this book has stuck with me to this day I don t recall the circumstances but I remember reading in awe as this room was described An empty room, perhaps a bed in the corner, furnished with This book has left an odd lasting impression on me.I remember the vaguest of outlines I remember the pages of italicized text driving me mad at age 8 And I remember my determination to finish a book titled Wolf As they were my favorite animal and current obsession child things Some of the imagery of this book has stuck with me to this day I don t recall the circumstances but I remember reading in awe as this room was described An empty room, perhaps a bed in the corner, furnished with a single candle set in the center of the room Cassie s mother was sitting on the bed I believe But this was no ordinary room The walls and ceiling were covered in mosaic with a myriad of shattered pieces of mirrors The singular flame from the candle multiplied and danced, a thousand times and then a thousandI remember the room having a red hue, perhaps the walls were painted garish red where they weren t plastered with mirror fragments.No matter how long I live, I feel I will never fulfill the desire I hold to see that room I carry it with me, I have stood in it, but I have never seen its reality.I was extremely young when I read this book I recall it giving me nightmares But somehow this book, of all that I read in my grade school years, has stuck with me And that singular image has played through my mind a thousand times a thousand, just as that singular flame danced in the mirrors.It is not always the quality of the work we read, but what we bring to it, and what we take away, that makes it worth remembering

    Cassy lives with her grandmother Her practical, sensible, responsible grandmother Her mother is a dreamer, unable to look after herself let alone her daughter And her father, well, no one ever talks about him Cassy has learned that if she isn t told about something then she shouldn t ask, it obviously isn t her business But every now and then Nan will decide, suddenly and without warning, that she should go visit her mother Stay with her for a few days, or maybe a few weeks, until she is s Cassy lives with her grandmother Her practical, sensible, responsible grandmother Her mother is a dreamer, unable to look after herself let alone her daughter And her father, well, no one ever talks about him Cassy has learned that if she isn t told about something then she shouldn t ask, it obviously isn t her business But every now and then Nan will decide, suddenly and without warning, that she should go visit her mother Stay with her for a few days, or maybe a few weeks, until she is sent for It ll give Cassy a chance to get to know her mother, so her grandmother says.But on this occasion is all came far too suddenly for Cassy s liking And when she tries to get in contact with Nan there is no response Her mother has moved from her address but Cassy is used to this, and tracks her down to her new squat and her new boyfriend He is a children s entertainer But something about him makes Cassy uneasy And then there are her dreams, wolfish and full of danger I m not quite sure what I was expecting with this book, but I got something quite different, but nevertheless a very entertaining and readable book I really liked Cassy as a character Her upbringing with Nan has made her such a no nonsense girl, she is only thirteen but she is a lotsensible than her mother A lotmature and in touch with the real grown up world Or so Cassy believes And in many ways she is the grown up child, knowing that work has to be done and that fun is for afterwards Her mother is far different, but she is also hiding a secret The same secret that Nan keeps from her Over the course of this book, and it is quite a short book so I won t be giving away much , she has to discover that truth, and come to the realisation that sensible, responsible Nan isn t always who she tries to be That the past sometimes needs to be investigated, even if those you love and trust think it is none of your concern.http www.susanhatedliterature.net 2

    I picked this up at a book exchange in a shopping centre did not recognise the author of the Demon Headmaster, which I enjoyed as a kid The writing is lean and forceful, very compelling, and quite unflinching in its characterisation of adults I have read modern retellings and alternative tellings of fairytales e.g Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks This story s basic arc is of a teenager learning to uncover and face the truth of her family s past and present The fairytales contain basic psychol I picked this up at a book exchange in a shopping centre did not recognise the author of the Demon Headmaster, which I enjoyed as a kid The writing is lean and forceful, very compelling, and quite unflinching in its characterisation of adults I have read modern retellings and alternative tellings of fairytales e.g Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks This story s basic arc is of a teenager learning to uncover and face the truth of her family s past and present The fairytales contain basic psychological truths, and it felt like the punch this one packed drew on the knowledge of the power of story, mythology, symbolism, and yes, psychology You can t hide the truth, it will just build up pressure and eventually have its day The end felt a bit rushed however for a young audience, a firm closure may be a suitable respite from all the suspense and stress of the story The point had been made and the hero, Cathleen, had broken through

    Wolf is an incredibly easy and quick read I wasn t sure what I expected from it, given the title and cover, and the fairytale references at the end of almost every chapter, but also given the fact that it s subtitled Playing with Reality in my course list It s probably best if you re interested in this book that I don t say too much about that, because it really could spoil the atmosphere of the book.Suffice it to say that it didn t really turn out the way I expected from the cover, et Wolf is an incredibly easy and quick read I wasn t sure what I expected from it, given the title and cover, and the fairytale references at the end of almost every chapter, but also given the fact that it s subtitled Playing with Reality in my course list It s probably best if you re interested in this book that I don t say too much about that, because it really could spoil the atmosphere of the book.Suffice it to say that it didn t really turn out the way I expected from the cover, etc.I didn t really engage with it, I think I didn t get any emotional involvement, not even cringing at things where normally I d feel a twinge of embarrassment along with the main character It was entertaining enough as a very quick read, but it didn t heh get its teeth into me

    Wolf by Gillian Cross is a Young Adult novel set in London, England in the 70 s I enjoy reading stories set before modern conveniences like cell phones, internet, and Uber This dramatic and at times terrifying novel puts Cassy out on the street in search of her estranged mother nicknamed Goldie Parents and Teachers, the story ismystery than horror Descriptive wolf images and amazing wolf facts are found throughout the novel creating erie comparisons to human behavior.
