Wolk returns to the world of Wolf Hollow in this sequel to her beloved, Newbery Honor–winning debut. In a starred review, Booklist calls My Own Lightning "a powerful story to electrify the soul," and Publishers Weekly writes, “With a memorable heroine, a finely honed voice, a distinctive setting, and deeply grounded relationships, this thought-provoking novel raises ethical issues about personal flaws and forgiveness.” –Publishers Weekly, starred review.
