Reviewed by Emma Megan for Readers' Favorite

Kirakee's Wolf Pack: Howl Upon the Moon by KC Morcom is a remarkable young adult fantasy with an anti-bullying theme. It follows Kira, who wants to find out what has happened to her mother as Kira can't accept that she is presumed dead even though there is no evidence of her being deceased. For now, Kira focuses on winning a scholarship at her new school, but unfortunately, due to her quiet nature, she becomes the target of bullying. One night, Kira makes a desperate plea to the powers of the universe for her mother to be found and for better things to come. However, that very same night, she dreams of a young wolf howling at the moon, making the same plea. Thus begins the story of a lonely wolf named Kirakee and a divided kingdom.

I can't remember when I last read such a wonderful, sad, and moving story with so many twists and turns packed with mystery, action, and adventure. This irresistible mystery fantasy about a divided kingdom and different worlds that unexpectedly connect is well worth reading. I was highly impressed by Kirakee and her strength to rise even though she was repeatedly bullied, betrayed, excluded, and forced to overcome the loss of her loved ones. Kirakee's Wolf Pack: Howl Upon the Moon by KC Morcom evoked emotions of sadness in me, as well as frustration and empathy toward all victims of bullying and domestic abuse. This action-packed novel containing beautiful black and white illustrations is perfect for animal lovers, especially those fond of wolves.
