This book has been discussed on numerous blogs, however, it was Christy's recommendation that prompted me to pick up a copy for myself. St. Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves is a series of stories narrated by characters that are either on the cusp of or the midst of adolescence. Despite the mythological elements of each tale, the pain and confusion associated with growing up is entirely relatable. Almost too relatable - I often found these stories to be painful reminders of the awkward middle school experience. Despite this, Karen Russell's narrators are charming in their insecurity, and it wasn't long before I was hooked. Most of the time, I wished each story was a little longer so I could spend more time with the characters. St. Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves deserves its rave reviews.
