"We call it the Tox, and for the first few months, they tried to make it a lesson."
The girls at Raxter Boarding School are infected. On an island, quarentined from the rest of the world, Hetty waits it out with her classmates believing and hoping that a cure will finally come. But when her best friend Byatt goes missing, Hetty strikes out into the forbidden woods to rescue her. Wilder Girls is part horror, part sci-fi, and all femme. Hetty's voice was strong and led me through every heart break and victory. I'm still with these characters and I can't wait to see what Rory Powers does next.
