Series: Wolf by Wolf
Over ten years since the Nazis won the war, 17-year-old Yael has one mission: to kill Hitler. But first she's got to get close enough to him to do it. Wolf by Wolf is a captivating YA alternative history thriller, selected as the BBC Radio 2 Book Club title for 4th January 2016 and perfect for fans of The Book Thief. Once upon a different time, there was a girl who lived in a kingdom of death. Wolves howled up her arm. A whole pack of them - made of tattoo ink and pain, memory and loss. It was the only thing about her that ever stayed the same. Her story begins on a train. Experimented on by scientists during her childhood in Auschwitz, Yael escaped from the concentration camp with the unique ability to change her appearance at will. The only parts of her which always remain are the five tattooed wolves on her arm, one for each of the people she's lost. Now she is intent on getting revenge and achieving her goal: to kill the Fuhrer and change history forever. But to get close enough she must win an epic and gruelling motorcycle race from Berlin to Tokyo - disguised as someone else...

Reviews for Wolf by Wolf (#1 Wolf by Wolf)

Wolf by Wolf is such an important read right now because it stresses the idea of taking an active role in society. It proves that one person really can make a huge difference. It will absolutely isnpire you to keep fighting on for what's right. * Epic Reads * Wolf by Wolf is an enthralling, adrenalin fuelled story * Weekend Australian * Pacy, credible and raw, every page snarls at you, dragging you into the plot * Woman's Way * Ferocious and challenging * The Daily Telegraph * This is a smart, many-layered thriller that not only kept me right on the edge of my seat but kept me guessing right up until the final, scary, and completely unexpected twist. An alternate history, a brutal race, a secret mission, with a pinch of sci-fi to set it going - hands down to Ryan Graudin for coming up with something so entirely different. * * Gripping, powerful and utterly addictive, Wolf by Wolf is an absolute must-read * The Guardian * Yael joins a long list of strong female leads - warriors, really - in young adult fiction, who prove their worth by exceeding expectations normally associated with males. Her desire for revenge is palpable and her determination well portrayed. Wolf by Wolf is as fast-paced and tense as The Hunger Games and will keep you wondering not only who will win the race, but also what their final victory will be. * The Bookseller * An absorbing, exciting and interesting novel with a great central character * The Bookbag * High tension, epic adventure and a very feisty heroine, this would suit fans of the Hunger Games and X-Men to All The Light We Cannot See * South Wales Evening Post * It's harrowing and heart-rending, but at the same time the rush that surrounds every step of the race makes it an addictive read... Not once does Graudin ever lose sight of the events that inspired Wolf By Wolf though, and it's her clever command of resolve and a teenage girl's fight through her fears for a better world that makes Graudin such an unstoppable writer * SciFi Now * Engaging and suspenseful, this is a perfect read for history and spy buffs alike * Scotcampus * Ultimately Wolf by Wolf is a story of fierce and determined hope. Hope to survive, hope to win, hope to make a better world. It is a triumph of writing and a must read for 2015. If you loved X Men First Class, Orphan Black, The Big Lie and The Book Thief, this is the book for you. 5 Lightning bolts for this incredible book. * * I sat in a tube station and refused to leave until I reached the end because I couldn't bear to put it down. Wolf By Wolf throws us into the dusty path of a stunning, fast-paced and well-written journey. All I wanted to do upon finishing was tell other people about it. * The Pretty Books * Gripping, powerful and utterly addictive, Wolf by Wolf is an absolute must-read * The Guardian *
