Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  ROrn
One day, Jake and Lucy, two friends, set off to find a wolf that both of their fathers want to kill. Lucy doesnt intend to come back to her abusive father and Jake has every intention of coming back to tell his father where it is. Jake ends up twisting his ankle and he and Lucy must spend the night in a cave. Something happens that night that will change their whole lives.

This was a very unique book. The whole story was written through poetry! I have to admit that it did get a little annoying after a while, but overall it was clever. I especially liked the little love scene between Lucy and Jake. This was a very good book!
