Book Review: The Wolf's Curse #iLoveMG

Every year my 5th graders do an independent book club where I give them a range of books to try. The goal is to stretch them as a reader - try a new genre, new style, new situations that they might not pick up on their own. #iLoveMG rounds up these reviews. (Please note that my fifth graders read a wide variety of books across a wide variety of genres, levels, and topics. Do not think that these books are "only" for fifth graders.) Or check out #3rdfor3rd for recommendations from when I taught third grade.

The Wolf's Curse

Recommended by Lucie

I read The Wolf’s Curse by Jessica Vitalis. The genre of my book has some fantasy things and others are perfectly normal. A twelve year old boy has been accused of many deaths. The townspeople think that he summons the wolf. All he is able to do is talk and listen to the wolf. The mayor of the village want’s him put to death, but when the family member who was protecting him dies unexpectedly, he is now alone. Until some unexpected things happens. 
I really like this book because the plot is very creative. Many things take a turn so quickly and at the climaxes I never wanted to put the book down. It was also interesting because the book was told from the wolf’s point of view. You hear what the wolf thinks, not what the boy thinks. If you like halfway normal types of books then you will love this book! I liked this book because of the point of view it was told in. I would rate this a 8/10.
