Book Thoughts by Rachelle
Wolves, Boys, and Other Things That Might Kill Me by Kristen Chandler was excellent!
I will admit that the cover did little to impress me and the title even less. I was confused, wondering if it was some kind of werewolf book–it was not.
The voice of KJ, the main character in this book, was intriguing, realistic, awe-inspiring, and even a little sarcastic. Chandler did an incredible job of weaving in the real life story of the re-introduction of wolves to Yellowstone National Park and the dangers they pose to local ranchers. But it was also a realistic look at life as a teenage girl trying to discover herself and a new boyfriend in the process.
There were so many great moments in the book from funny to a shiver-cringe. If you’re looking for a great general fiction book for young adults, I suggest you check out Wolves, Boys, and Other Things That Might Kill Me. Chandler definitely surprised me with her tight storyline and excellent narrative skills.
Here’s more about the book:
KJ Carson lives an outdoor lover’s dream. The only daughter of a fishing and wildlife guide, KJ can hold her own on the water or in the mountains near her hometown outside Yellowstone National Park.
But when she meets the shaggy-haired, intensely appealing Virgil, KJ loses all self-possession. And she’s not sure if it’s a good thing or a bad thing that they’re assigned to work together on a school newspaper article about the famous wolves of Yellowstone.
As KJ spends time with Virgil, she also spends more time getting to know a part of her world that she always took for granted… and she begins to see herself and her town in a whole new light.
