About the Book


Sometimes it's good to be wild.

Sometimes you have to be wild.

When the Russian Army marches into East Prussia at the end of the war, the Wolf family must flee. Liesl, Otto and their baby sister Mia find themselves lost and alone, in a blizzard, in the middle of a war zone. Liesl has promised Mama that she will keep her brother and sister safe.

But sometimes, to survive, you have to do bad things. Dangerous things. Wild things.

Sometimes to survive, you must become a wolf.

Bestselling author Katrina Nannestad returns with her most masterful novel yet -- a book to crack open your heart, a book to light you up inside, a book to love.


'This powerful and compelling novel is the perfect balance of light and dark: challenges are met with courage, desperation with resourcefulness, cruelty with kindness, and the result is both moving and inspiring. Timely and timeless, in its depiction of one of history's darkest hours We Are Wolves shines with heart and hope' - Frances Watts

'Beautifully written, uplifting and heartbreaking. The Wolf children's story will stay with you forever' - Judith Rossell

'It is 1945, as the Russian forces ravage the land and the German population retreat. Thousands of children are abandoned and orphaned. The children lived wild in the forests and became known as Wolfskinder. This lost history is revealed through the three Wolf children's dangerous journey to safety. A timely novel recognising the silent victims of war and the courage and resilience of children to find joy in dark times' - Susanne Gervay

'We Are Wolves is an astonishing, thrilling rollercoaster of a novel, capturing both the horrific realities of war and the undimmed power of hope, grit and persevering love. Told through the eyes of the fiercely loyal Liesl Wolf, this is a story of consummate tenderness' - Lisa Shanahan
