Will had a beautiful life with her father on their African farm. Every day was filled with adventure and joy. Her boarding school life in London is just the opposite. She doesn't know how to handle the culture shock.
I have now read all of Katherine Rundell's book! I absolutely love the author's writing style. She writes her female characters with such strong and wild personalities.
I absolutely adored Will. She loved spending time in the outdoors, playing with the wildlife and running with boys. All that personality was almost stifled by the sudden switch in setting.
The second half of this book was hard to read. I felt so bad for Will and how she wasn't adjusting to the new school. But after her adventurous life on the farm and running away from her school the ending just left me underwhelmed.
With the ending being rushed and everything be wrapped up with just too perfect of a bow, I give this book a B.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
