Description

Even a life on the untamed plains of Africa can't prepare Wilhelmina for the wilds of an English boarding school in this lovely and lyrical novel from the author of Rooftoppers, which Booklist called "a glorious adventure." Wilhelmina Silver's world is golden. Living half-wild on an African farm with her horse, her monkey, and her best friend, every day is beautiful. But when her home is sold and Will is sent away to boarding school in England, the world becomes impossibly difficult. Lions and hyenas are nothing compared to packs of vicious schoolgirls. Where can a girl run to in London? And will she have the courage to survive? From the author of the "witty, inventively poetic" Rooftoppers comes an utterly beautiful story that's sure to be treasured.

Professional reviews

"Listeners will be drawn to the spunk and determination of Wilhelmina Silver, who is being raised on her fatherÕs farm in Zimbabwe. With the death of her father, WillÕs carefree life changes as her guardianÕs new wife ships her off to a British boarding school. Bianca Amato narrates with compassion. Her joy is contagious as Will rides through the Zimbabwean countryside with the wind whistling through her ears. At the new school Amato makes WillÕs loneliness palpable. AmatoÕs supporting characters are also distinctiveÑespecially DanielÕs feisty grandmother, who helps Will set her future course. A.R. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
