"Wild and gorgeous, vivid and consuming. I loved it! I can't wait for the sequel."
—Laini Taylor, New York Times bestselling author of the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy
"A haunting portrayal of one girl's courage in the face of a vicious world. I was racing along with Yael until the book's heart-pounding conclusion. A triumph."
—Megan Shepherd, author of The Madman's Daughter
"Ryan Graudin opens one of the darkest chapters in history and spins a what if into an incredible tale of survival, identity, and purpose. This is the kind of book you can't put down, and the kind that follows you long after you have. It is, quite simply, a masterpiece."
—Victoria Schwab, author of The Archived series
"The rush of an action movie combined with a flawlessly executed history, this is the book I've been waiting for. I loved WOLF BY WOLF, and I'm not speaking to my friends till they've read and loved it too."
—Jackson Pearce, author of Sisters Red and Tsarina
"WOLF BY WOLF completely immerses the reader in a story they'll never forget. Filled to the brim with tension and intrigue, nonstop action, and a vivid cast of characters, you'll feel every bump in the road they ride. I simply couldn't stop reading--and wherever Ryan Graudin rides next, I'll follow."
—Amie Kaufman, New York Times bestselling author of These Broken Stars
"We loved Yael's poignant flashbacks and the heart-pounding adrenaline of the race and her mission. This is WWII meets X-men meets The Hunger Games on motorcycles, with a kickass heroine and cute guys.—Justine Magazine
* "Graudin (The Walled City) crafts another fast-paced, enthralling tale of sacrifice and dogged determination as she fuses alternate history and spy-thriller suspense. A provocative rumination on self-preservation, the greater good, and the boundaries that keep heroes from becoming as cruel as those they fight."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
* "Beyond its breath-taking climax, the novel provokes deeper questions about the 'moreness' Yael begins to see in her competitors' identities, and in her own."
—VOYA (starred review)
"Graudin's prose is artful and addictive."
—School Library Journal
"Alternate histories can be risky gambits, but in Graudin's capable hands, it pays off in spades. Yael is a compelling protagonist, both strong and flawed, and, even imbued as it is with sci-fi elements, seeing both WWII and the concentration camp experience through her eyes is a terrifying adventure."
"With this complex and well-crafted mix of action, emotion, and alternate history, Graudin provides something new and notable for readers of historical and dystopian fiction."
"Give this to fans of espionage novels, and strong female protagonists; some dystopian fans may even take to the resistance storyline."
—School Library Connection
