Luce and Alpha are identical twins. But on the inside, they couldn't be more different. A story about healing through nature and listening to the wildness inside us all...
When Luce and Alpha's parents split up, they move with mum to their grandad's home in the forest. Mum has a new job at a rewilding centre, reintroducing wolves to the wild.
Luce loves the forest where she can stargaze with her telescope. And she can't go back to school and face everyone. Not after What Happened. But Alpha hates the forest and hates dad. All she wants is for life to go back to normal and follow her dream of becoming a basketball star. Things between Luce and Alpha have never felt worse. How can they be so alike and yet so far apart?
When a new wolf cub arrives at the centre, Luce names him Claw and they form a special bond. But Alpha thinks he should roam free, and together with her friends, they plot to release him. When news of Claw's disappearance breaks, the future of the rewilding centre is put at risk and Alpha's relationship with her family – and her twin sister – is shaken like never before.
A warm and empathetic take on the unique twin bond, celebrating what unites us and what makes us different.
