Cassy does her best to throw herself into her mother's life, even agreeing to take part in their travelling show called 'Wolf'. But she can't ever get rid of the feeling that something is following her, and something bad is going to happen

Wolf" is an interesting, intriguing, but sometimes confusing read. The plot is good, unexpected, and strong to the end. The characters are well-constructed and believable. This book held my intrest to the last word. Gillian Cross brings a poetic and mystical quality to her books as only British writers seem to do(funny, huh?:).

Weaving memorably offbeat yet believable characters, extraordinary events, and contemporary issues, Cross once again confronts classic verities in a stunningly original, splendidly crafted story. Despite this squalor, the three make a living with innovative programs for schools: combinations of fact and fiction, drama and story, skillfully blended to challenge stereotypes and spark original thinking. Their latest subject, resonant with social significance and symbolic ambiguities, is the wolf.

Cassy hears footsteps padding through Nan's flat in the middle of the night. The next day she is packed off to stay with her beautiful but childish mother. There is no explanation. Something has gone wrong and Cassy faces danger. Soon she must face up to her past - who her father is, why he left, and where he has gone.

"Wolf" is an interesting, intriguing, but sometimes confusing read. The plot is good, unexpected, and strong to the end. The characters are well-constructed and believable. This book held my intrest to the last word. Gillian Cross brings a poetic and mystical quality to her books as only British writers seem to do(funny, huh?:). My favorite thing about the book had to be the way Gillian Cross used wolves to symbolize people and how the blood-thirsty, man-eating wolves of our nightmares are not the real wolves of nature, but the wolf inside of us. Overall, a very interesting and thought-provoking book. One of my favorites!:)
I would like to recommend the following books by Gillian Cross:
Roscoes Leap (fair warning: don't read before bed!)
Born of the Sun (very intense adventure story)
Tight Rope (haven't got it yet but sounds really good)
On the Edge ( haven't got that either, but also sounds good)
Akir
This missed out on five stars because of a rushed ending, and some annoying dream-sequences.

Otherwise, I loved the character dynamics and the things it said about family, and about how we perceive people and the assumptions we make about them. Also, props for the positive view of unschooling.
Wooden Purple Romeo
A girl called Cassy lives with her nan and she is called away to see her mother who is always moving house. She finds her mother, but Cassy also comes across two other men who live with her. They make wolf masks and put a type of explosive in them. . . . . .

I would recommend this book to Year 8 or 9 students.
