INTERMEDIATE FICTION
Magras, Diane

The Mad Wolf's Daughter

(2) 4-6 Twelve-year-old Drest sees her father and brothers captured from their camp on a Scottish headland in the feudal thirteenth century and travels with wounded knight Emerick to exchange him for one of her brothers, secretly planning to rescue her whole family. Magras emphasizes action sequences and emotional conflicts. She dodges a predictable outcome and lands on a satisfying conclusion that will gratify those rooting for idealism.
