It's K.J.'s junior year in the small town of West End, Montana, and whether she likes it or not, things are different this year. Over the summer, she turned from the blah daughter of a hunting and fishing guide into a noticeably cuter version of the outdoor loner. Normally, K.J. wouldn't care less, but then she meets Virgil, whose mom is studying the controversial wolf packs in nearby Yellowstone Park. And from the moment Virgil casts a glance at her from under his shaggy blond hair, K.J. is uncharacteristically smitten. Soon, both K.J. and Virgil are spending a lot of their time watching the wolves (and each other), and K.J. begins to see herself and her town in a whole new light.

    Sixteen-year-old KJ is a spitfire who is outgrowing life with her father (her mother died when KJ was three) in a small Montana town just outside Yellowstone National Park. "All I know is that if he says I've 'bloomed' one more time I'm going to run away from home and become a shrub," she says of her emotionally remote father. Together they run a fishing supply store and work as guides in the park, but when dashing Virgil moves to town with his progressive mother on a wolf research trip, KJ becomes determined to live down her reputation as a "free-floating oddball." She works on the school newspaper as part of her journalism class and teams up with Virgil, a photographer, to launch a "Wolf Notes" column, which ignites outrage among those who view wolves as menaces (wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone in a controversial 1995 program). Chandler's debut is a lively drama, saturated with multifaceted characters and an environmental undercurrent. She writes persuasively about the great outdoors, smalltown dynamics and politics, and young love. Ages 12–up.
