Publisher Comments:

It?s 1972. Twelve-year-old Joan is sure that she is going to be miserable when her family moves. Then she meets a most unusual girl. Sarah prefers to be called ?Fox,? and lives with her author dad in a rundown house in the middle of the woods. The two girls start writing their own stories together, and when one wins first place in a student contest, they find themselves recruited for a summer writing class taught by the equally unusual Verla Volante. The Wild Girls brilliantly explores friendship, the power of story, and how coming of age means finding your own answers.

A wonderful and touching book that will inspire, comfort, and reassure young and preadolescent girls, especially those who are interested in writing, finding their own voice, have or want to have a best friend, and have familial issues. I am a teacher of Grade 5 students and have recommended the book to several of my female students who absolutely love it!
