Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt

* Picture from Amazon *

Format read: Paperback

Genre: Historical Fiction

Rating: 7 out of 10

Plot: June is a teenager whose only friend is her uncle Finn who dies from AIDS.  While grieving the loss of her uncle, June begins a clandestine friendship with Finn’s partner who is also coming to term with the loss of Finn while dying himself.

Opinion:  I have mixed feelings about the book.  The author drew me into the story pretty quickly, but I felt like the story stalled in the middle.  I thought the whole subplot of June’s strained relationship with her sister Greta seemed pretty unbelievable and I thought that the story petered out the a slow end.  I think this is a good book if you’re looking for something that won’t require a lot of thinking but subject-wise, it’s not a light read.

Next book: A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin
