one of them gets hurt during a blizzard Fighting sub zero conditions, oozing wounds and starving wolves, they make their way slowly toward help.This book is only 240 pages, which works perfectly The writing is bare bones, without a lot of words wasted on description This doesn t mean you won t feel frozen, isolated or terrified right along with the group, though The author strikes just the right balance between telling you and letting your imagination take care of the rest.This is touted as a middle grade book, which is probably fine in the same way that the school board thinks To Build a Fire is fine for that age Themes of desperation, violence, loss and death abound indeed, not everyone survives the trek Still, there is a sense of accomplishment and hope at the end I wouldn t have liked this book as a middle schooler, but I like it plenty as an adult Disclaimer I was sent an ARC of this book from Scholastic Press in exchange for an honest review All opinions are my own Synopsis

then she doesn t leave her father or sister for even a second One day she wakes up to see that they have both gone out of town suddenly, leaving her behind just as a huge blizzard rolls in Things only get worse from there.My review This book was atmospheric and enthralling from the very first page, and I read it in two sittings This is a Middle Grade that doesn t pull punches The setting is a brutal one, and the descriptions bring it to life beautifully The main character Sloan is a very strong, intelligent person, but she s also very timid because of a traumatizing experience she had, and the fact that her mother had left her and her family Because of her father s effort to force his daughter into independence, she s thrown into a very dangerous, unpredictable place with equally dangerous, unpredictable people The wilderness tests them all both physically and mentally, but also provides space for the healing of old wounds This is a story of human nature and survival and finding your own bravery It s a very human story, and I really loved it My only complaint is that I wantI ll have ain depth review up on my YouTube channel closer to the release date You can see this

Victoria s books and I have loved them all Hear the Wolves is so different than all of her previous books I loved this one too, but I think what I loved most about it was how different it was Victoria has a way with words I love how she tells a story, whether it is a romance, a paranormal or something totally creepy and eerily realistic, she pulls the reader in, in a way few authors have managed to consistently do I just love her books.Sloan, her father, and her sister live in a tiny and remote Alaskan town Think one step ahead of those Alaskan bush people There is a town and store, but just barely And the wolves outnumber the people in the town By a lot Sloan suffered a terrible accident when she was younger and it has left deep emotional scars She is terrified to do anything alone So when a storm hits and her father and sister are out of town, she panics a bit But what I liked most about Sloan is that even through her fierce fear, she manages to stand up and take charge She is just a young teenager and she rally s a group of people to try and help an injured woman This leads them on a journey outside in the storm, where the wolves are.The story was just so cool Fast paced and creepy as heck, I will not look at wolves the same way I mean, I had a healthy appreciation and fear of them before but I am certainly not going to be hanging out with anytime soon Also, if you are reading Hear the Wolves, you have to check out Victoria s story at the back because I loved hearing about her visiting the wolves sanctuary and how her experience shaped this novel Victoria holds no punches with this story Don t get too attached to any of the characters because the wolvesthey are a hunting But it was a read that I thoroughly enjoyed Since the main character is young, this is a middle grade novel, but I can easily see fans of young adult loving this one Bottom line Victoria Scott is one of my favorite authors She always writes stories that captivate me from beginning to end If you are a fan of survival stories, you will love Hear the Wolves If you are a fan of Alaska reality shows, you will love this book I found this to be a thrilling read One I am recommending to fans

thrilling, suspenseful survival story, it s a book about a mish mash group of people, a la John Hughes The Breakfast Club, trying to navigate this trek AND each other, bringing along their own personal baggage, flaws, strengths, weaknesses, and quirks The story is very well written and addicting I could not put it down This is a middle grade book, but adults would enjoy it as well It s full of discussion topics anxiety, alcoholism, abandonment, friendships, family situations, death While these sound like heavy topics, Scott handles all of them very well, keeping in mind her target

The first thought that I had after I finished Hear the Wolves was Wow Not only was this an amazing read, but, having never read anything from Victoria Scott before, I found myself incredibly impressed with her amazing and captivating writing style.The story is told from the main character Sloan s point of view, starting from the beginning where we are introduced to her enjoyment of hunting with her father She has her own rifle for taking down small game, such as rabbits, while her father has a shotgun for hunting bigger animals and keeping them safe from the wolves that roam the woods by their home The circle of life isn t a circle at all It s a straight line, with hunters on one end, and prey on the other The family hunts a lot of rabbit, which provides a decent amount of income for them, as well as food Since there are so many rabbits living in the woods, the large amounts of wolves that live there too don t really bother the people in the town, because they essentially have all the rabbits they can eat However, when a fence goes up, it disrupts the rabbits habitats and of course, thethat are hunted, the less there are for the wolves to eat making them hungrier and willing to do whatever it takes to get food.So when the entire small town heads into a larger town for a special voting session that involved keeping their township separate, Sloan s father and sister head out as well, leaving Sloan at home for the short time that they are scheduled to be gone Because of Sloan s problems with being alone since an incident involving her mother as a child, she is terrified at first, but then realizes that she might just be fine.And then the snow starts falling.When the harsh realization that the roads are completely becoming covered in snow and leaving it impossible for her father and sister, or any others in town, to return, Sloan begins to panic, and heads to the church in town Once there, she meets up with a few other townspeople including a boy that she hates because he was the one to find her during that incident all those years ago, a schoolteacher, a little boy, and an older woman who has fallen on a pitchfork and desperately needs medical attention.As a group, they set out to try and get to a doctor or hospital the only way they can think of aside from the roads the river However, in order to get to the river, they must first go through the woods.And the wolves are hungry.Desperately trying their hardest to get through the woods alive, with only a few shells for her father s shotgun and several bullets for her rifle, Sloan and the others try to team up to get help even though the wolves are willing to eat anything they can even the people in the town.Evading the wolves is an exhausting task as the group wades through the heavy snowfall and the bitter cold temperatures, trying to survive.This book is seriously amazing I love thrillers, so I knew this was going to be something I fell in love with from the first page, and I was right I thought it was amazing It s such an interesting survival story, and it isn t one that is sugarcoated or that is watered down, as some middle grade books are No, this one is actually evenhonest that some adult thrillers I ve read, making it such a real and downright terrifying novel.While this is listed as a middle grade book, I think that some of the content in the book is better suited for older middle graders maybe twelve and thirteen year old readers, as some of it is kind of violent and a tad bit on the gory side.The characters in this book all have their own personalities, and the first thing you re going to notice about Sloan is that she is no nonsense and isn t afraid to do what needs to be done in order to survive The ordeal with her mother from when she was a small child definitely shaped her into who she is today, but she also has the courage to take charge of a bad situation She s such an inspiring heroine for the novel, and adds a lot of personality to it Hear the Wolves is incredibly fast paced, nail biting action from the first page until the last It will leave you at the edge of your seat and wanting , until you find yourself finishing the novel in one sitting.If you like survival stories, this isn t one you want to miss.Note I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review Thank you YOU
