Going Wild by Lisa McMann was a bit of a dull read. This disappointed me because I very much liked this author’s last series, The Unwanteds. I did not get past the tenth chapter, and was definitely not captivated by the chapters I did read. From what I gather, the story follows a young girl who recently moved to Arizona. In the midst of missing her friends back home, she finds a bracelet. This bangle has magical properties that allow her to control the ‘Animal Kingdom’. However, I can’t say for certain because at the part where I stopped reading, she hadn’t done anything. I think that if you like coming-of-age stories and the animal kingdom, you may enjoy this book more than I did.
