End of School Year Celebration:  Ice Cream Sundae Creation!

Wolf Hollow by Lauren Wolk

July 14th: Friday at 4pm

Growing up in the shadows of 2 world wars, Annabelle has lived a quiet life in a small Pennsylvania town. Until the day Betty Glengarry walks into class. Betty reveals herself as cruel and manipulative. While her bullying seems isolated at first, things quickly escalate, and reclusive World War I veteran Toby becomes the target of her attacks. While others have see Toby’s strangeness, Annabelle knows only kindness. She will need the courage to stand as a lone voice of justice as tensions mount.

Brilliantly crafted.  A haunting tale of America at a crossroads and a time when one girl’s resilience, strength, and compassion help to illuminate the darkest corners of our history.
