Review: Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance

Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance by Ruth Emmie Lang
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher/author after I requested it as a Goodreads Giveaway.

I wasn't sure what I would think about this book because I don't always like fantastical elements but I found it charming and well-written, with several characters living unusual lives. A boy named Weylyn who lived with wolves, friends Mary and Lydia who influence his life in different moments, and a special pig who might have the ability to control the weather.

I liked the changing perspectives and the jumps between decades, because they kept the story moving forward and allowed it to be examined from different angles. I am surprised this isn't marketed as YA, despite some of the characters moving well into adulthood.
