Description

A dark, engrossing, blood-drenched tale of the familiar threats to female power-and one girl's journey to regain it. Five starred reviews greeted this powerful story from Elana K. Arnold, author of the Printz Honor winner Damsel.

You are alone in the woods, seen only by the unblinking yellow moon. Your hands are empty. You are nearly naked. And the wolf is angry.

Since her grandmother became her caretaker when she was four years old, Bisou Martel has lived a quiet life in a little house in Seattle. She's kept mostly to herself. She's been good.

But then comes the night of homecoming, when she finds herself running for her life over roots and between trees, a fury of claws and teeth behind her.

A wolf attacks. Bisou fights back. A new moon rises. And with it, questions.

About the blood in Bisou's past, and on her hands as she stumbles home.

About broken boys and vicious wolves.

About girls lost in the woods-frightened, but not alone.

Review quote

"In the wake of her Printz Honor-winning Damsel, Arnold blazes a new and equally powerful trail through toxic masculinity. Read, shed your pelt, and be transformed-for blades are being sharpened." -- Booklist (starred review) "It's unsettling how seamlessly Arnold incorporates dark fantasy elements of beastly wolves and cunning hunters into her all-too-realistic tale. A fantastic novel in the #MeToo era, empowering women to share their stories by reaching out, speaking up, and demanding a change." -- School Library Journal (starred review) "At once a sharp critique of male entitlement and a celebration of sisterhood and feminine power, this story will linger with readers long after the final page." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Arnold uses an intriguing blend of magic realism, lyrical prose, and imagery that evokes intimate physical and emotional aspects of young womanhood. A timely and unabashedly feminist twist on a classic fairy tale." -- Kirkus Reviews "This will satisfy readers looking for a vengeful overthrow of the patriarchy that recasts the victims as the victors." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
