Description

Wolf Miller lives a ‘townie’ life with his struggling family who are dealt an extra blow when Wolf’s brother Davey is diagnosed with Addison’s disease. Wolf feels neglected as he is constantly minding his six-year-old sister for his pre-occupied parents. Uncle Jeremy offers to take Wolf hunting, much to Wolf’s parent’s horror.


The offer to go hunting sounds great to 15 year old Wolf. A quick pig hunt, what could go wrong?

Reviews

'There is no doubt there is a fair bit of adrenaline involved in hunting (for females who hunt as well), but Mary-Anne has given us a spot-on portrayal of a teenager who is still learning his space in the world, making this more than just another yarn.' --thesapling.co.nz – Sarah Forster 

'This story had no ‘boring bits’ as Wolf came across one challenge after another. Great kiwi lingo and reluctant reader heaven.' --whatbooknext.com – Adele Broadbent 

'It’s a graphic, high-tension, sometimes shocking story that will appeal to boys aged about 12 to 14 who are interested in the idea of testing themselves by going pig-hunting in the wilderness.' --kidsbooksnz.blogspot.co.nz – Lorraine Orman
