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.
