Tell The Wolves I'm HomeTell The Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A beautiful book on the surface about a young girl who has lost her beloved uncle to AIDS, and her growing friendship with his lover.  But with as much depth as this book has, it's hard to describe it that simply and do it any justice.  It's a coming-of-age, it's a romance, it's about two sisters finding their friendship again, it's about honoring a dying person's wishes.  It's about first love, and saying goodbye.  And doing bad things for the right reasons, and forgiveness.

Love it, though now I have to check out the paperback. I was so impressed that it was her debut novel.
