GOING WILD, by Lisa McMann


The story: When Charlie receives a mysterious bracelet in the mail, she puts it on immediately, not knowing that it’s going to give her special powers of healing, strenght, speed, climbing, and echo-location. She also doesn’t realize that the bracelet wasn’t meant for her, or that the bad guys who developed it are going to want it back. Charlie is just figuring out her new powers when the bad guys come to reclaim their property–but she can’t get the bracelet off her arm, and her new friends are sucked in as they try to help her.


Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Kids who like stories about being the new kid in town, as well as kid who like a high-tech science fiction adventure story, will like this one!
