In Claire Gilchrist's richly imagined debut novel, two young coyotes, Pica and Scruff, live with their packs in a large city. As humans encroach on dwindling resources, the two coyote packs must do everything they can to survive. Gilchrist shows in page-turning detail the perils urban wildlife faces as we expand into their homes. Readers will find themselves cheering for Pica and Scruff as they search for home and forge an unlikely friendship. A must-read for fans of Pax, The One and Only Ivan, and The Crickets in Times Square.
