Publisher’s Synopsis: Twelve-year-old Gauge’s life has been cursed since the day he witnessed an invisible Great White Wolf steal his grandpap√°’s soul, preventing it from reaching the Sea-in-the-Sky and sailing into eternity. When the superstitious residents of Bouge-by-the-Sea accuse the boy of crying wolf, he joins forces with another orphan to prove his innocence. They navigate their shared grief in a journey that ultimately reveals life-changing truths about the wolf—and death. Narrated in a voice reminiscent of The Book Thief, this fast-paced adventure is perfect for fans of fantasy such as The Girl Who Drank the Moon and A Wish in the Dark

The Wolf's Curse was a phenomenal read. The story reminded me of a fairy tale with some fantasy and lessons intertwined. The story draws you in through the wolf's perspective and with each page you get to understand the wolf, the boy and the residents of Bouge-by-the-Sea. The author tackles grief and afterlife beliefs in an interesting and highly imaginative way. The characters were engaging and interesting. I felt like this story was just really well-done from beginning to end. There's a great beauty to this story and the writing. The only thing I disagree with is the recommended age. The story handles concepts that an eight year old can read, but I think kids need to be a little more mature to read this story. This story is something that upper Elementary, Middle Schoolers and teens will enjoy. This book could also generate some interesting discussion in a classroom setting. The Wolf's Curse was masterfully written and I can't wait to see what the author has in store for us next.
