History of Wolves

Fourteen-year-old Madeline lives with her parents in the beautiful, austere woods of northern Minnesota, where their nearly abandoned commune stands as a last vestige of a lost counter-culture world. Isolated at home and an outlander at school, Madeline is drawn to the enigmatic, attractive Lily and new history teacher Mr. Grierson. When Mr. Grierson is charged with possessing child pornography, the implications of his arrest deeply affect Madeline as she wrestles with her own fledgling desires and craving to belong. And then the young Gardner family moves in across the lake and Madeline finds herself welcomed into their home as a babysitter for their little boy, Paul. It seems that her life finally has purpose but with this new sense of belonging she is also drawn into secrets she doesnt understand. Over the course of a few days, Madeline makes a set of choices that reverberate throughout her life. As she struggles to find a way out of the sequestered world into which she was born, Madeline confronts the life-and-death consequences of the things people doand fail to dofor the people they love...

History of Wolves Reviews

    The moment I finished this book, I rushed back to the library to return it so that another of my fellow Denizens of the Eternal Waitlist could have a chance to read it ASAP. Northern Virginia Readers: You’re Welcome.

    As many others have described, this is not a perfect book; it ambitiously tackles a number of weighty themes and integrates various plotlines and time jumps within a relatively modest page count. So, I cannot protest too much other readers’ objections that the book occasionally meand

    I can't figure out how to rate this. I did NOT like this book. The writing is 3 stars, maybe even 4, there is definitely some snippets of really beautiful prose. Even more than snippets actually, the prose is consistently enjoyable, and judged only on the technical, she'd probably walk away with 4 stars, but judging on the overall experience, 2 stars all the way.

    The way I felt about this book was the way one feels when they're listening to a story about some random, nondescript person who went

    The initial tension level of this story was maintained at a consistently high level with writing that hints and pulls back, shifts gears between the narrator, Linda/Madeleine, her parents and their history, her school and town, and the new neighbors. There are feelings of menace, in thoughts, in nature, in people, but what is really going on? Our narrator, Linda/Madeleine gives us clues but no answers until late.

    I really liked the first two-thirds of the book, where the tension is maintained eve

    “Winter collapsed on us that year. It knelt down, exhausted, and stayed. In the middle of December so much snow fell that the gym roof buckled, and school was cancelled for a week.”

    Emily Fridlund’s debut novel is a moving story of a young girl who lives on the land of a former commune-type community. Her parents are relics from years gone by, late to the hippie party. Living off the land, they live in a shack, really. She’s young, a teenager, her given name is Madeline, but s

    History of Wolves is one of those novels that I couldn't put down but, in the end, I have mixed feelings about.

    Linda is a socially awkward 14 year old girl living in Minnesota with her family. Her parents, especially her mother, are somewhat strange and detached. When the Gardener family moves in across the lake, Linda begins babysitting for their four year old son,Paul, while Paul's mother, Patra, edits a research paper her husband, Leo, has written.

    On the first page we learn that Paul has "g

    WOW. This novel left me breathless, Fridlund's sentences literally knocking me in the gut. She has a masterful way of telling a story, one that is both visual and fierce. Her characters complex and real, the way she described some things creepy, chilling. I don't think I've read anything like this and I sincerely hope I will again! Stunning, unique, crisp. This will without a doubt be my favorite book of 2017.

    A book of interesting ideas and a dark little heart, yet also one that’s problematic in its execution. It either needs to be a shorter story just based around our odd (which I liked) narrator and a small boy she befriends and his parents. Or about our odd narrator and her small obsession with another student and their teacher. Together with odd snippets of her life post school (of which many didn’t make sense) this didn’t quite work. But it’s not awful.
