Summer of the Wolves, by Polly Carlson-VoilesU

Summary: Orphaned  Nika and her  brother Randall   leave a California foster home to visit a long-lost uncle on a wilderness island. Nika, of all people, knows not to get her heart set on anything, but as she follows her uncle in his job studying wolves, Nika stumbles upon a relationship with an orphaned wolf pup that makes her feel — for the first time since her mother died — whole again. Here in these woods, with this wolf, none of the hard things in her past can reach her.
