Celebrated by Kirkus Reviews as a Best Children's Book of the Year, Wild Things is Clay Carmichael's stunning debut novel. Following the death of her mentally ill mother, 11-year-old Zoë moves to North Carolina to live with her uncle, a metal sculptor named Henry. It doesn't take long for the sharp-tongued Zoë to warm to some of the town's eccentric residents, including a woods dwelling teenager, who helps Zoë in unexpected ways.

    " For Ages 9-12 (an up!). Not only was this book awesome, like The Graveyard Book, it is suited for that nice tweener age group, but copies are available in the YA section, too. "

    " Secret Garden popped into my mind when I read this book because of the similarities in its plot and characters but this book is interesting in its own right. It is beautifully written and I simply love the part where the cat becomes the center of attention. However, I have some questions in the solitary existence and survival of the boy in the woods. I also think it is harsh and sad to reiterate in the story (but true) that some children are really better off without their negligent parents! But the way these issues were discussed was subtle in a way that it could easily reach young readers. For this and other more reasons, I will surely re-read this book! "

    " This book is amazing, but so confusing. The style in which the book is written is very interesting. This is because Zoe, the main character, refer to people such as her mom and uncle with nicknames. This make the story slightly hard to follow. The storyline itself is very touching. This book is about Zoe, a girl who just lost her mother. Who she thinks is crazy. She is then forced to move in with Henry, her uncle she has never met. Thoughts of her mothers old boyfriends sometimes haunt her. The story is told from two points of view, through the eyes of Zoe and though the eyes of a stray cat. Through this book Zoe learns to like and trust her uncle and his friends. Though I wasn't really able to connect to this book like a did with the book Invisible Lines, I think it is a great book and is definitely worth reading. While starting this book, I didn't enjoy it all that much. However, and this point it the book it's starting to become more interesting and I can't wait to read more! "
