About this title

Synopsis:

In a distant time, in a distant place, the Storn find a small, ragged, howling child, living among the wolves and take her home. Years later, a box is washed up on the shore and a sinister stranger arrives to claim it as his own. But what has really brought him to Storn?

From the Inside Flap:

SIG IS A boy in a coastal tribe, the Storn, long ago in a Northern land. On the day of the wolf hunt, the life of the tribe changes forever, for Sig rescues a small girl, more like the wolves who shelter her than a human. Sig's family adopts her and names her Mouse, and he becomes a loyal brother to this girl with mysterious powers and a secret past. The shocking discovery of Mouse's true identity brings to life a terrifying legend and leads to war, betrayal, and Sig's coming of age as he finds the wit and courage to save his tribe.

"Like an ancient cave painting come to life, Sedgwick's tale of dark enchantment depicts a primitive tribe in a north country."—Publishers Weekly, Starred

"Will . . . find a solid readership among historical fiction fans, thanks to the fast pace, hint of magic, and satisfyingly enigmatic
conclusion."—Booklist

"Employing a lean narrative voice and writing in short chapters that encourage page turning, Sedgwick draws readers along . . . rich, involving, and vivifying."—School Librabry Journal, Starred
