  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Ramarie | 2/6/2014

    " A rough read, unflinching. Drugs, cruelty, kidnapping of a child and three teens with no role models or responsible adults...a damning portrayal of youth gone wacko. If not for Wiggins, the only sympathetic character in this book, it would be 100% bleak instead of just 95% bleak. Guess I just had to see if this book was similar to 33 Snowfish. It is. "

    " Disturbing but very realistic. The voices rang completely true. "

    " Frighteningly effective, The Children and the Wolves pushes the young adult tag probably as far as it can go, and the unapologetically coarse language is the least of it. Alternating viewpoints among the three captors and the little girl they've abducted, the novel's only misstep (which is also the thing that gives it any humanity at all) is focusing its attention on Wiggins, when the most fascinating character is Bounce. She disappears with about a third to go, and her lost presence weighs on the rest of the book. What we're left with, however, is more unsettling than all the other dystopian nonsense glutting the YA market these days. "

    " Adam Rapp once again demonstrates his mastery of raw, penetrating prose and bleak imagery. A grim, haunting story. "
