Tell the wolves I am Home

Tell the Wolves I'm Home: A Novel - Carol Rifka Brunt

The story is set in the 80’s  where saying the word AIDS is more disgusting than Santa Clause telling a 4 year old to F off.  ……  

It tells the tale of 14 year old June and the way she and her family are all dealing with the loss of June’s uncle Finn in their own slightly dysfunctional way.    June uncovers many secrets about Greta and their mother in her search for answers about Finn and Toby, the mystery man in Finn's life.

The way Toby tried so hard to reach out to June while she tried even harder to not care was almost painful to read.  All the characters were beautifully developed each with their own flaws, jealousy, insecurities and fear.  This is a fantastic debut novel and I will definitely read more from this author.
