Four Stars for Debut TELL THE WOLVES I’M HOME

We’ve heard raves on GalleyChat about a debut with one of the season’s most memorable titles, Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt, (RH/Dial, 6/19).

The new issue of People magazine (7/2, not available online) backs that up with a four-star lead review, saying the book “takes us under the skin and inside the tumultuous head of  June,” the book’s 14-year-old narrator, who is not only dealing with the usual torments of becoming a teenager, but also with her love for her uncle, who is dying of AIDS.

Concludes People, “Distracted parents, tussling adolescents, the awful ghost-world of the AiDS-afflicted before AZT — all of it springs to life in Brunt’s touching and ultimately hopeful book.”
