24807186Title: Wolf by Wolf
Author: Ryan Graudin

Series: Wolf by Wolf Book 1

Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

Synopsis:

Her story begins on a train.

The year is 1956, and the Axis powers of the Third Reich and Imperial Japan rule. To commemorate their Great Victory, Hitler and Emperor Hirohito host the Axis Tour: an annual motorcycle race across their conjoined continents. The victor is awarded an audience with the highly reclusive Adolf Hitler at the Victor’s Ball in Tokyo.

Yael, a former death camp prisoner, has witnessed too much suffering, and the five wolves tattooed on her arm are a constant reminder of the loved ones she lost. The resistance has given Yael one goal: Win the race and kill Hitler. A survivor of painful human experimentation, Yael has the power to skinshift and must complete her mission by impersonating last year’s only female racer, Adele Wolfe. This deception becomes more difficult when Felix, Adele twin’s brother, and Luka, her former love interest, enter the race and watch Yael’s every move.

But as Yael grows closer to the other competitors, can she bring herself to be as ruthless as she needs to be to avoid discovery and complete her mission?

From the author of The Walled City comes a fast-paced and innovative novel that will leave you breathless.

Rating: I will be giving this book a 4 out 5 stars. This book was sometimes difficult for me to read due to the subject of the holocaust. I really took my time with this book and didn’t push myself which is why it took so long for me to even pick up the book. With that being said, after I did pick it up and finally read it I really did enjoy this book and the perspective it gave. I also really liked the main character Yael and her internal struggle. She seemed very realistic and genuine. Being able to see her character development was really amazing especially considering her how her past has effected her. This book was action packed and a great read. It gives you a different side to if Hitler won. If you are a interested in history, especially what happened during World War II than this is the book for you.
