Wolves, Boys, and Other Things That Might Kill Me

A story of friendship, family, and life, and an adventuresome read

Written by Kristen Chandler

KJ Carson lives outside Yellowstone and works for her Dad, helping with the store and guiding visitors on fishing and hunting trips. The little town doesn’t see many people around during the off season, but this year a new boy moves in named Virgil. Usually KJ doesn’t fall for the good looking popular type, but this guy is different. Virgil and KJ are assigned to work together on an assignment for the school newspaper about the reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone National Park. This begins an adventure that compares to no other KJ has experienced. Author Kristen Chandler has done a wonderful job telling the story of two teens meeting and learning about how life is complicated. Both sides of the wolves’ reintroduction to Yellowstone are told, leaving the reader to make a determination about the issue. A story of friendship, family, and life, Wolves, Boys, and Other Things That Might Kill Me is an adventuresome read for junior high and high school students.
