Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Wild Bird:

"Van Draanen’s Wren is real and relatable, and readers will root for her." — VOYA, starred review 

"Riveting... Van Draanen makes palpable both the outer desert landscape and Wren's intense inner emotions. A memorable book about family, friendship, forgiveness, and second chances." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Spellbinding" -- Midwest Book Review

"A strikingly raw and emotional story. The first-person narrative perfectly captures Wren’s cynical yet vulnerable teen voice." -- SLJ

"I read Wild Bird in one long mesmerized gulp. Wren will break your heart—and then mend it." —Nancy Werlin, National Book Award finalist for The Rules of Survival
 
"Engrossing and inspiring." -- PW

“This was an absolute one-sit read and I recommend it highly.” —Rene Kirkpatrick, University Bookstore, Seattle

“Wow! This book is a gem. I could feel the heat, the cold, the fear and frustration at every turn of the page.” —Valerie Lewis, Hicklebee's Bookstore

“An exhilarating story of survival and second chances.” —Dana Reinhardt, author of Tell Us Something True
 
Wild Bird grabbed me by the wrist on page one—it’s riveting.” —Jenny Hubbard, author of And We Stay, a Printz Honor Book
 
"An involving tale of a middle-schooler who took a very wrong turn but manages to straighten her own path." -- Bulletin
