THE WOLF WILDER BY KATHERINE RUNDELL
Feodora and her mother live in the snowbound woods of Russia, in a house full of food and fireplaces. Ten minutes away, in a ruined chapel, lives a pack of wolves. Feodora's mother is a wolf wilder, and Feo is a wolf wilder in training. A wolf wilder is the opposite of an animal tamer: it is a person who teaches tamed animals to fend for themselves, and to fight and to run, and to be wary of humans.
When the murderous hostility of the Russian Army threatens her very existence, Feo is left with no option but to go on the run. What follows is a story of revolution and adventure, about standing up for the things you love and fighting back. And, of course, wolves.

This is the UK cover edition for this gorgeous book. And I love this version the most. Sigh. It is so beautiful! Though the US version is pretty too :) But ack. This book sounds pretty amazing. A bit different, so I'm not sure I would love it, but it is SO PRETTY. So I'm going to get it. And I'm going to cross all my fingers that I will love it. Because I want to. I want to so badly. Oh, how it is gorgeous.
What are you waiting for on this wild Wednesday?
