Journal Entry 1 by Mothercat from Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand on Friday, July 4, 2003
Their camp was on Nordy Bank, the site of an ancient Iron Age fort. Bron, Margery and the others were all set for an enjoyable holiday, but ever since they had been there, Bron, usually so quiet and good-natured, had become aggressive and unfriendly. She could not understand the strange, withdrawn feeling inside her, nor her confused feelings of pity and hatred for the wolf-like Alsatian that crept up to the camp in search of food.

Journal Entry 6 by smd49 from Lower Hutt, Wellington Province New Zealand on Monday, March 28, 2005
Found lurking in a flower planter in New Regent Street in Christchurch, while I was walking around the city on Saturday over Easter - once read, I'll probably release it somewhere in downtown Wellington. My introduction to BookCrossing!

An undemanding read, but Susan Cooper or Rosemary Sutcliff are better bets for good children's/young adult fiction in this style.
