Tell the Wolves I'm Home113
There's only one person who has ever truly understood fourteen-year-old June Elbus, and that's her uncle, the renowned painter, Finn Weiss. Shy at school and distant from her once inseparable older sister, June can only be herself in Finn's company; he is her godfather, confident, and best friend. So when he dies far too young of a mysterious illness that June's mother can barely bring herself to discuss, June's world is turned upside down. At the funeral, she notices a strange man lingering just beyond the crowd, and a few days later, June receives a package in the mail. Inside is a beautiful teapot she recognizes from Finn's apartment, and a note from Toby, the stranger, asking for an opportunity to meet. A the two begin to spend time together, June realises she's not the only one who misses Finn, and if she can bring herself to trust this unexpected friend, he might just be the one she needs the most. Tell the Wolves I'm Home is a tender story of love lost and found, an unforgettable portrait of the way compassion can make us whole again.

Underbar skildring av tonårens jobbiga år, syskon, saknad och vänskap. Författaren tar snabbt tag i en och håller ett fast grepp till sista sidan.
Gustaf, 7 maj 2013
Fint skildrat från en 14-årings perspektiv. Tunga ämnen behandlas på ett sådant sätt att man känner mer läsglädje än mörk sinnesstämning.
