Staff Reviews


I was thoroughly captivated in just the first two pages of this breathtaking novel, and I loved Ellie's quiet assured voice in the face of difficulty. Taking place in Maine during the Depression, the resilience shown by Ellie and her family is especially hopeful, and Ellie's own awakening is powerful. Once again, Wolk proves she is one of the finest writers for middle grade.

— Jamie

Description


"Soothing and exquisitely written." -People

"Surely there has never been a better time to read about healing, of both the body and the heart." -The New York Times Book Review

"A supple tale of struggle, ingenuity and the restorative power of generosity even in bitter times. This is a book that will soothe readers like a healing balm." -The Wall Street Journal

"Brilliant." -Lynda Mullaly Hunt, bestselling author of Fish in a Tree

When the Great Depression takes almost everything they own, Ellie's family is forced to leave their home in town and start over in the untamed forests of nearby Echo Mountain. Ellie has found a welcome freedom, and a love of the natural world, in her new life on the mountain. But there is little joy, even for Ellie, as her family struggles with the aftermath of an accident that has left her father in a coma. An accident unfairly blamed on Ellie.

Determined to help her father, Ellie will make her way to the top of the mountain in search of the healing secrets of a woman known only as "the hag." But the hag, and the mountain, still have many untold stories left to reveal and, with them, a fresh chance at happiness.

Echo Mountain is celebration of finding your own path and becoming your truest self. Lauren Wolk, the Newbery Honor- and Scott O'Dell Award-winning author of Wolf Hollow and Beyond the Bright Sea weaves a stunning tale of resilience, persistence, and friendship across three generations of families, set against the rough and ragged beauty of the mountain they all call home.
