Laura's July 2019 pick, 1 of 2
I read this book in one sitting, and let me tell you, it was a wild ride from start to finish. The narration is choppy and stream of consciousness-esque in a way that works remarkably well, an experience that's made even more impressive when you realize that Wilder Girls is Rory Power's debut. I am amazed at the skill with which this book is written, and that's not even touching on the gripping plot or the achingly raw that feel more real than some actual people I've met. This book has blood, sweat, and tears in some of the most gruesome ways, and is definitely not for younger teens. That said, I highly recommend it to anyone who likes the stakes high and the struggles deadly. You won't be able to put it down.
“Set at a girls boarding school off the coast of Maine, Wilder Girls explores the lengths to which a group of teen girls will go to survive their own mutating bodies and the vicious wilderness on the island where they are quarantined due to a mysterious contagion called the Tox. Unapologetically brutal, this feminist horror story is both a mystery unraveling and an action-packed thriller, showing humanity’s desperation as the girls try to survive and save those they love most. A stunning debut by a powerful new voice.”
