“3:47 a.m. That’s when they arrive for Wren Clemmens. 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 what to do with them anymore. This is wilderness therapy camp.”

Wild Bird is the compelling story of a middle schooler who makes a wrong turn and the family who doesn’t know how to help her. It’s a story of facing yourself, and moving from anger to acceptance. It’s a story of courage and strength, and of rebuilding a life, one step at a time.  Riveting and emotional, Wren’s first-person narration will break your heart whether you are a teen or an adult, yet it also inspires us to forgive ourselves, and each other. From the author of Flipped and Running Dream comes an insightful and powerful novel written for grades 7-9.
