BOOK REVIEW:Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt
1987. The only person who has ever truly understood fourteen-year-old
June Elbus is her uncle, the renowned painter Finn Weiss. Shy at school
and distant from her older sister, June can be herself only in Finn’s
company; he is her godfather, confidant, and best friend. So when he dies,
far too young, of a mysterious illness her mother can barely speak about,
June’s world is turned upside down.
But Finn’s death brings a surprise acquaintance into June’s life. At the funeral, June notices a strange man lingering just beyond the crowd. A few days later, she receives a package in the mail containing a beautiful teapot she recognizes from Finn’s apartment, and a note from Toby, the stranger, asking for an opportunity to meet. As the two begin to spend time together, June realizes she’s not the only one who misses Finn, and that this unexpected friend just might be the one she needs the most.
