Wild is a wonderful, vibrantly illustrated children's book that balances a deep message-- that the human spirit is stronger than any efforts to tame it, or break it-- with clever humor and whimsical visual beauty. I felt empowered and inspired by the reminder, relevant at any age, that we each have a right to seek happiness and belonging on our own terms. Share this book with the wild child (or adult!) in your life.

Reading this book was like watering my soul during a time when life had become rough and intellectually uninspired. The protagonist, Janie Crawford, is strong, passionate, and constantly evolving in her search for a fulfilling emotional life. Janie Crawford and Elizabeth Bennett, if they ever meet in book heaven, will have a good long chat about love, independence, and trueness to self in a world that often denies women all three.
