Ice Wolves - Amie Kaufman

This author has an amazing ability to suck you completely into a story. The story has a very Harry Potter feel. Young magical boy orphan gains magical ability, meets smart girl who questions the history at school. I almost didn't read this because it was middle school age. Glad I did- so far I'm having trouble putting it down
