HEAR THE WOLVES

Author: Victoria Scott

Pub. Date: March 28, 2017

Publisher: Scholastic Press

Pages: 240

Formats: Hardcover, eBook

 

It’s survival of the strongest in a contemporary, girl-versus-wild middle-grade debut from Fire & Flood author Victoria Scott!

Sloan is a hunter.

So she shouldn’t be afraid of anything. But ever since her mom left the family and she lost hearing in one ear in a blizzard, it’s been hard to talk to people, and near-impossible to go anywhere or do anything without her dad or big sister within eyesight — it makes her too scared to be on her own.

When they leave her home alone for what should only be two nights, she’s already panicked. Then the snow starts falling and doesn’t stop. One of her neighbors is hurt in an accident. And the few people still left in Rusic need to make it to the river and the boat that’s tied there — their only way to get to a doctor from their isolated Alaska town.

But the woods are icy cold, and the wolves are hungry. Sloan and her group are running out of food, out of energy, and out of time. That’s when the wolves start hunting them . .

YABC:   Where did the inspiration for Hear the Wolves come from?


It actually came from a dream! I was watching the news before bed, and they were covering a blizzard that was expected to hit the East Coast. My brain kept buzzing around all that snow, and people being trapped in their homes. In my dream, the snow kept falling, and falling…and then the wolves came.

 

 

 

YABC:   Who is your favorite character in Hear the Wolves?


My favorite character has to be the main character, Sloan. She’s been through so much at such a young age, and yet she finds the courage and strength to face big obstacles (and sharp teeth!) in order to help an injured neighbor, and herself.

 

 

 

YABC:   Which was the most difficult or emotional scene to narrate?


There’s a particular scene where the characters have to cross an icy pond that’s pretty brutal. That scene was a white-knuckler for me!

 

 

 

YABC:   Which came first, the title Hear the Wolves or the words themselves?


The title! For this book, I really needed that title to know where I was going with the story. Many times, publishers will change titles to better market the book. But for this one, the title stuck from idea to finished book. I was thrilled!

 

 

 

YABC:   What scene in Hear the Wolves are you most proud of, and why?


The ending! Sloan has a lone moment of bravery in which she faces her fears, both internal and external, and it made me brilliantly satisfied to write.

 

 

 

YABC:   What do you like most about the cover of Hear the Wolves?


Can I say everything?! The designer, Nina Goffi, hand drew every single part of the cover, and it blew away every expectation I had for it. The colors, the wolf, the jagged snowflakes, the lettering…it’s absolutely stunning.

 

 

 

YABC:   What was your favorite book you read in 2016?


I read an outstanding middle grade novel called The Wolf Hollow that I highly recommend! It has great, twisted characters and a fantastic setting. A must-read!  

 

 

 

YABC:   What’s next for you?


I have a young adult novel coming out in May called Violet Grenade. It’s a psychological thriller that I’m really excited about!
