Wild Bird

Written by Wendelin Van Draanen

When Wren goes off the rails, her parents send her off to a wilderness therapy camp in the Utah desert. Wren could not be more unhappy about being forced into camp, but does not have a choice. The first days in the wilderness are hard, and dealing with the emotions of facing the consequences of her life decisions are even more difficult. As Wren continues on her path at camp, she meets people who will change her life and is able to come to grips with her true issues. This story was very inspirational and can teach us all something about facing the truth and turning our lives around, even if we may think it’s too late. Great read, and for us Utah readers, fun that it is set in our own backyard.

  1. It would be awesome to have a book like this to offer our students here at Kennedy Jr. Inspirational material is the best kind to offer.
