Spider-Man meets Animorphs in this thrilling middle grade series from Lisa McMann, New York Times bestselling author of the Unwanteds series. Katherine Applegate--Newbery Medal winning author of The One and Only Ivan, Wishtree, and Endling--calls this book "gripping, action-packed, and filled with humor and heart." Charlie Wilde knew her life would change forever when her family moved from the city of Chicago to the suburbs of Arizona...and that was before she found the bracelet. After putting it on, she notices odd things start to happen. Suddenly Charlie seems to have the speed of a cheetah and the strength of an elephant--and that's just the beginning. She would be thrilled about her transformation if she had any idea how to use the device or control her amazing powers. So Charlie is forced to put her trust in new friends to help her uncover the surprising truth behind the mysterious bracelet. The Going Wild series is perfect for fans of Rick Riordan, Brandon Mull, and Ridley Pearson looking for a new twist on their middle grade adventures. It blends science fiction with the animal kingdom, highlighting some of the incredible feats that animals can achieve, which might seem possible only in comic books but are actually completely true. Don't miss Going Wild #2: Predator vs. Prey and Going Wild #3: Clash of Beasts!… (altro)

Although the book took a little longer than I thought necessary to get going, the action did pick up enough to have me interested in what happens next. We've got four teens all with newly acquired bracelets and we really only know fully about the capabilities of one of them. I think my middle school students will enjoy this series once it's out. ( )

This novel is a science-fiction story.

Charlie is not happy. Her parents are moving the family from Chicago to Arizona. Seriously? Why would anyone want to live in Arizona? Her father has been a stay-at-home dad, which she and her brother Andy have appreciated and enjoyed. With the move, Charlie’s dad has decided to return to work as a professor at the local college. Her mom is in charge of the ER at the local hospital. Not only have they left their home and friends behind, but Charlie and Andy don’t see their parents much anymore. There’s some anger on Charlie’s part.

Charlie isn’t a coward. She attends school without her father walking her in and applies herself to getting busy. She wants to make the soccer team and joins the theatre to work backstage. Kelly is assigned as her first day escort, but Charlie quickly discovers that Kelly isn’t someone Charlie would ever be friends with. She does meet Kelly’s neighbor, Maria and Maria’s best friend Mac. This friendship becomes life-saving, both literally and figuratively. You see, Charlie found a bracelet in the move that seems addressed to her. When she put it on, it won’t come off. It also gives her powers. Mac is a computer genius, so Charlie hopes he can figure out how to get it off. Charlie will need courage to handle the powers and the responsibilities of such powers.

The novel sets of the story and introduces the “bad guy” early on. He doesn’t reappear much in the novel because he’ll be part of book two. Most of the novel is Charlie adjusting to life in Arizona and trying to figure out how to get the bracelet to work when she wants it to and how to get it off. Mac and Maria help her with the experiments. Basically, this novel just sets everything up. The danger and momentum occur at the end, to be continued in book two. You won’t be surprised as to where the bracelet originates or what happens at the end of the novel. ( )
