Publisher's Summary

A girl and the wolves who love her embark on a rescue mission through Russian wilderness in this lyrical tale from the author of the acclaimed Rooftoppers and Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms.
Feo's life is extraordinary. Her mother trains domesticated wolves to be able to fend for themselves in the snowy wilderness of Russia, and Feo is following in her footsteps to become a wolf wilder. She loves taking care of the wolves, especially the three who stay at the house because they refuse to leave Feo, even though they've already been wilded. But not everyone is enamored with the wolves or with the fact that Feo and her mother are turning them wild. And when her mother is taken captive, Feo must travel through the cold, harsh woods to save her - and learn from her wolves how to survive.
From the author of Rooftoppers, which Booklist called "a glorious adventure", and Cartwheeling in Thunderstorms, which VOYA called "a treasure of a book", comes an enchanting novel about love and resilience.

This has been my favourite book so far and I can't wait to read more from Katherine rundell. As someone who understands wolves this book made me feel happy and inspired to make a difference in the world.As well as the way she made the character so easy to relate to and it almost makes it feel as though this story is true and did happen sometime a long time ago so thankyou for the time and effort.

This was a really good book! I liked the way it was very tense and exciting but with a happy ending. My favourite character is Theo, and my favourite part is the revolution. I recommend this for age 10+... or super smart 8 year olds like me!
