More About Wild Bird by Wendelin Van Draanen
 
 
 
Overview
In her most incisive and insightful book yet, Wendelin Van Draanen, award-winning author of The Running Dream and Flipped, offers a remarkable portrait of a girl who has hit rock bottom, but begins a climb back to herself at a wilderness survival camp in the desert.

3:47 a.m. That's when they come for Wren Clemmens. She's hustled out of her house and into a waiting car, then a plane, and then taken on a forced march into the desert. This is what happens to kids who've gone so far off the rails, their parents don't know what to do with them anymore. This is wilderness therapy camp. Eight weeks of survivalist camping in the desert. Eight weeks to turn your life around. Yeah, right.

The Wren who arrives in the Utah desert is angry and bitter, and blaming everyone but herself. But angry can't put up a tent. And bitter won't start a fire. Wren's going to have to admit she needs help if she's going to survive.

Advance praise for Wild Bird
"I read Wild Bird in one long mesmerized gulp. Wren will break your heart--and then mend it." --Nancy Werlin, National Book Award finalist for The Rules of Survival


Praise for Wendelin van Draanen's The Running Dream:
" An] accessible and inspirational novel." --The Horn Book Magazine

"Readers will truly feel what's it like to walk (or run) a mile (or 10) in Jessica's shoes." --Booklist

"Inspirational. The pace of Van Draanen's prose matches Jessica's at her swiftest. Readers will zoom through the book just as Jessica blazes around the track. A lively and lovely story." --Kirkus Reviews
