Bina has nev­er for­got­ten the time she and her moth­er ran away from home. Her moth­er promised they would hitch­hike to the city to escape Bina’s cru­el father and start over. But before they could even leave town, Bina had a new step­fa­ther and two new step­sis­ters, and a hum­ming sense of betray­al pulling apart the bond with her moth­er — a bond Bina thought was unbreakable.

Eight years lat­er, after too many lies and with trou­ble on her heels, Bina finds her­self on the side of the road again, the city of her dreams call­ing for her. She has an old suit­case, a fresh black eye, and a room wait­ing for her at Cather­ine House, a young women’s res­i­dence in Green­wich Vil­lage with a trag­ic his­to­ry, a vow of con­fi­den­tial­i­ty, and dark, mag­i­cal secrets. There, Bina is drawn to her enig­mat­ic down­stairs neigh­bor Mon­et, a girl who is equal parts intrigu­ing and dan­ger­ous. As Bina’s lease begins to run out, and night­mare and mem­o­ry get tan­gled, she will be forced to face the ter­ri­ble truth of why she’s come to Cather­ine House and what it will cost for her to leave …

In A Room Away from the Wolves, crit­i­cal­ly acclaimed and New York Times best­selling author Nova Ren Suma weaves a spell­bind­ing ghost sto­ry about who deserves a sec­ond chance, how we lie to those around us and our­selves, and what lengths girls will go to in order to save each other.
