Overview
Even a life on the untamed plains of Africa can't prepare Wilhelmina for the wilds of an English boarding school in this "gripping, magical, and heartwarming tale of resilience, friendship, and hope" (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

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 Rooftoppers, which Booklist called "a glorious adventure," comes an utterly beautiful story that's "a treasure of a book" (VOYA).
