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.
"Carmichael uses a sure, light touch to portray the gradual blooming of trust among the story's many wild things in this satisfying tale."—Booklist
