Stacy was raised by wolves. She's never needed humans to survive and, from what she sees of humans, they're dangerous and unpredictable. For as long as she can remember, Stacy's pack of six powerful, playful wolves -- Addison, Basil, Everest, Noah, Tucker and Wink--have been her only family. Together, Stacy's pack patrols the forest to keep other animals safe, relying on her wits and each wolf's unique abilities to accomplish risky rescue missions. But as the forest changes and new dangers begin lurking, are Stacy and the wolves prepared for the perils that await them? A rival wild pack, the constant threat of being found by humans, and a lost dog with a secret plunges them even further into harm's way -- it's going to take the whole pack working together to keep the forest, and Stacy safe.

I just think that this is the best book in the world and NOT because it was written by a YouTuber. This tells a great tale of how humans are hurting animals and how we should save forests. It's a very insiprational story and my friend who encouaged me to read it both LOVED it. Reading this book and watching the channle was one of the greatest dicisions I've ever made in my life.It's totally worth 5-stars.

People are giving this five stars just because it was written by a YouTuber, which is kinda pathetic by the way. It's like saying you only like a song just because of who created it. This book wasn't a very nice read. It portrays humans as the main enemy of the wild and bad guys for guarding the animals they own. I can see some farmers, who defend their livestock from wolves trying to kill them, offended after reading this. It also basically says that wolves are friendly, non-violent creatures and tells nothing about over-population and the problems it can cause. And tell me, what type of wolf species lives off of pumpkins and chicken soup? Stacy sounded counter-intuitive when she thought humans are "dangerous and unpredictable" when she herself does violent things that are less than likely expected. Overall, this book wasn't worth my time. If you're looking for a story with wolfs, look into The Call Of The Wild. It's more believable, inspirational, and a really great story.

My daughter loved the book and hopes there will be a sequel. She's 8 years old and loves wolves and other animals. She hopes to work with animals when shes older. She liked the bond between the wolves and Stacy. The book inspired her.

A wholesome story about a young girl who is raised by a pack of wolves. This book addresses many issues including deforestation and hunters who kill for sport. I enjoyed reading about the relationship that Stacy shares with the wolves and think this book would be a good fit for fans of Erin Hunters "Warriors" series.
