Della had Suki. When their mom's boyfriend took them in, Della had Suki. When that same boyfriend did something so awful they had to run fast, Della had Suki. Loving, loyal, and fierce, Suki is Della's own wolf – her strong protector. But who has been protecting Suki? Della might get told off for misbehaving at school, but she's always known how to keep quiet where it counts. Then Suki tries to commit suicide, and Della's world turns so far upside down, it feels like it's shaking her by the ankles. Maybe it's time to speak up. Maybe she's been quiet about the wrong things. And maybe it's time to be loud about the right ones. Your young readers will be moved by the fierce loyalty and love these two sisters share and the struggle Della must go through to find her own voice. Ages mature 10 and up. 272pp.
