Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance by Ruth Emmie Lang

Weylyn Grey is an orphan that lived with wolves after a snowstorm kills him parents. He loves the woods and his wolf pack but is lonely for human company. His life takes him into the human world where he never quite fits in due to his emotions seeming to cause changes in weather and animals naturally befriending him and plants growing unnaturally quickly around him. As a reader you are rooting for him and are curious like everyone else in his life about his subtle magical abilities. This book was nostalgic and magical like childhood. It was easy to read and had lots of lovable characters. It made me want to wander around in the wilderness for a day and appreciate the beauty of nature. The supporting characters really made this book come to life with their humanity and humor and made you realize like Weylyn did that you cannot live happily without the ones you love.

I received this book from NetGalley for review consideration. I ended up buying it from Book of the Month Club since I was enjoying it so much.
