Wild Bird

347 am That's when they come for Wren Clemens 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 wha I m blindfolded for what feels like an hour jostled around on a dirt road breathing in dust feeling like I m on a sketchy version of Disneyland s Raiders of the Lost Ark ride Like in another turn we might go crashing down a mountain Then I remind myself We re in the desert The flat ugly desertI recently received an ARC for Wild Bird and I spent three hours crying laughing cheering tensing up shouting and saying WOW over and over again as I read this incredibly honest powerful and compelling story of one teenager s journey from destruction loneliness and bitterness to acceptance strength and courage Wendelin Van Draanen takes her readers on an unforgettable ride through the Utah desert as Wren experiences eight weeks of survival camping in a Desert Prison and learns to start a fire in the wilderness and inside herself As the story unfolds Wren s anger destructive behavior and desperate cry for friendship love and understanding are revealed with poignant insightful storytelling and masterful word imageryThe path to redemption for Wren is a long and arduous adventure that every teenager and adult should experience with her as she leaves the comforts and turmoil of home behindto venture into the unknown and come face to face with physical challenges and with the reality of the person she has becomeThe research and attention to detail that went into describing Wren s downward spiral and her trek into the expansive Utah terrain make this an exceptional read and destined to be an award winner I love how the author beautifully weaves Native American legends told by Mokov a Paiute storyteller into the book in a very meaningful way Van Draanen creates an intense gritty thought provoking story that lends itself to in depth discussion It does not cross the line with inappropriate language violence or gratuitous scenes It is a novel that will leave you breathless and satisfied at the same time I found myself underlining passages and re reading paragraphs to get the full impact of the messages in themWild Bird is a YA contemporary fiction masterpiece and a must read that will appeal to both teen and adult audiences There is no doubt that it is destined to be a best fiction for young adults selection for 2018 I look forward to September 5th when I can purchase copies to place on my school s library shelves
