 What Would Happen If You Didn't Tame Your Wildness? 

Join us for the launch of The Wilderness of Girls, the newest YA title from MADELINE CLAIRE FRANKLIN! Come experience this gripping exploration of how the world teaches young girls to cage their wildness — and what happens when they claw themselves free.

In The Wilderness of Girls, after being placed in foster care, Rhi turns to her new job at the wildlife preserve for comfort. But when she witnesses the surreal sight of a pack of wolves guarding four feral and majestic girls, her world is changed forever. Rhi soon befriends the girls, who claim that they are princesses from another land, and that Rhi is their lost 5th sister. Unsure what to believe, Rhi ushers the girls to civilization, where they’re met with societal uproar and scrutiny, dubbed by the ravenous media and true crime junkies as “The Wild Girls of Happy Valley.” Desperate to return to their kingdom, the girls look to Rhi for help. Was is right to bring the girls out into the world? As the line between fantasy and reality grows blurry, Rhi must make a decision that will change the course of her life and the lives of her Wild Girls forever.
