Wolf Storm by Dee Garretson

Dee Garretson's Wolf Storm will be released on September 1, 2011. Wildfire Run, her debut novel, is popular with my fourth and fifth graders.

Dee gave me permission to post her description of Wolf Storm.

Sometimes filming a movie can go very wrong…and turn all too real.

The movie is Stefan’s big break. He’s on location in the mountains far from home, acting in a blockbuster sci fi adventure. The props, the spaceships, and the trained wolves on set should add up to a dream job, but acting turns out to be much tougher than he ever imagined, and he feels like his inner loser is all that’s showing through.

From the way his famously stuck-up co-star, Raine, treats him, he’s pretty sure she thinks so too. And worst of all, no one will believe his claim there are wild wolves haunting the forest around the set.

When a blizzard strikes, isolating the young co-stars and bringing hungry feral wolves into the open, Stefan must take on his biggest role yet-working together with his costars to survive. With no second takes, they only have one chance to get it right."


I will show the Wolf Storm trailer during the first week of school and during my book trailer unit. It is a fine example of a quality book trailer.

I'll pick up a copy for the winner of my Wolf Storm Giveaway, too.
