Even a life on the untamed plains of Africa can’t prepare Wilhelmina for the wilds of an English boarding school in this lovely and lyrical novel from the author of Rooftoppers which Booklist called “a glorious adventure”Wilhelmina Silver’s worl This ended up to be a sweet book although for a relatively short book it did take me a little while to get into it The characters overall story and the message were alright but the writing was definitely the best thing about it This one is probably my least favorite book by my author but I still enjoyed itNow please enjoy some uotes from this book that perfectly illustrate Katherine Rundell's gorgeous writing styleLetters she thought were just like books mostly about love“Her voice he thought was like water running over pebbles in sunshine” “It was never too late she said to turn a living thing around and a garden was the most living of things”

Katherine Rundell Ì Girl Savage book

Girl SavageE nothing compared to packs of vicious schoolgirls Where can a girl run to in London And will she have the courage to surviveFrom the author of the “witty inventively poetic” Rooftoppers comes an utterly beautiful story that’s sure to be treasured It's difficult for me to figure out how I feel about this novel In many respects I think that Wilhelmina's story is one of a courageous little girl making the best of foreign circumstances that have upended her world It broke my heart to see her go through so much hardship and it was jarring to feel her displacement due to the move so keenly since I moved to a new place at a similar age What I did feel was a bit on the lackluster side was the secondary character development but it didn't deter me from my appreciation of Will's story
