Product Details


Cai’s scratchy, flowing chapter heads enhance the fantastical atmosphere. A subtle, haunting debut.
—Kirkus Reviews

Readers will glimpse the harsh reality of life in Soviet prison camps and root for Lina on her journey of self-discovery, as she finds the inner strength to survive a variety of dangers. The magical adventure is brought to life through lush details and vivid imaginings of ghostly wolves as they stalk through the woods after Lina and Bogdan. A strong choice for anyone who loves adventure, history, coming-of-age tales, magical journeys, or fairy tales.
—Booklist Online

An intriguing first novel with equal parts adventure and magic; an additional purchase.
—School Library Journal

Twelve-year-old Lina was born in her Siberian labor camp and knows nothing of the outside world…readers looking for a seasonal book with Russian folklore may find this rewarding.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
