Publisher's Summary

An instant New York Times best seller, Wilder Girls is Rory Power's visceral and enthralling YA debut. The Power meets We Were Liars in this compelling story of survival and the power of female friendships.

Everyone loses something to the Tox; Hetty lost her eye, Reese's hand has changed, and Byatt just disappeared completely.

It’s been 18 months since the Raxter School for Girls was put in quarantine. The Tox turned the students strange and savage, the teachers died off one by one. Cut off from the mainland, the girls don’t dare wander past the school’s fence where the Tox has made the woods wild and dangerous. They wait for the cure as the Tox takes, their bodies becoming sick and foreign, things bursting out of them, bits missing.

But when Byatt goes missing, Hetty will do anything to find her best friend, even if it means breaking quarantine and braving the horrors that lie in the wilderness past the fence. As she digs deeper, she learns disturbing truths about her school and what else is living on Raxter Island.  

And that the cure might not be a cure at all....

Immersive

One of the best books I've listened to this year. This book drew me in, it had a lot of twists and turns that I saw coming but it still managed to capture the innocence of the girls and the connection between them perfectly. My only dislike was the end, I want to know what happened next.
