Jake and Lucy hike to Sheldon Mountain: Jake to prove his dad right or wrong about the wolf he claims he saw; Lucy to escape her father's cruelty. Jake's dad saw the wolf before Jake was born. They say wolves don't live in this country, yet in the night Jake hears it howling, long and lonely. During the hike, both are tested--physically, emotionally, spiritually--but what they find on that dangerous, dark mountain surprises them both. A novel written in verse, this "Voice of Youth Advocates" Poetry Pick is taut and tender, a gripping blend of physical adventure, family drama, love story, and journey of self-discovery.
