My Own Lightning

A Wolf Hollow companion story


Author: Lauren Wolk



Bestselling author Lauren Wolk returns to the world of Wolf Hollow, in a companion novel to her beloved, Newbery Honor-winning debut.  

In the aftermath of the tragic events set in motion by bully Betty Glengarry, the routine of daily life in Wolf Hollow has returned. But for Annabelle McBride, loss continues to cast a long shadow and it's hard to make peace with what feels like threadbare justice. A powerful storm is about to leave change in its wake, setting Annabelle on a new path to help her little brother Henry. A search for Henry's dog, Buster, will bring them to unfamiliar doorsteps and also reunite Annabelle with a too familiar adversary-Andy Woodberry, who once stood at Betty's side during her most terrible acts.

Growing up and blazing her own trail will soon force Annabelle to reexamine deeply felt truths-about people, about justice-that had once seemed so uncomplicated.
