Summary
A heartbreaking tale of loss, survival, and fierce spirit. It is the early 1970s. Twelve-year-old Joan is sure that she is going to be miserable when her family moves from Connecticut to California. 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 is about friendship, the power of story, and how coming of age means finding your own answers--rather than simply taking adults on faith
