(From the publisher):
Sig is a boy in a coastal tribe, the Storn. On the day of the wolf hunt, the life of the tribe changes forever, for Sig rescues a small girl, more like the wolves who shelter her than like a human. Sig’s family adopts her and names her Mouse, and Sig becomes a loyal brother to this girl with disturbing powers and a secret past. One day Sig and Mouse find a mysterious box on the beach, and a stranger, a magician, comes in search of it–and of Mouse. The shocking discovery of Mouse’s true identity brings to life a terrifying legend and leads to war, betrayal, and Sig’s coming of age as he struggles to save his tribe.
