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.

I enjoyed this book quite a lot and found it quite good. I prefer the Unwanteds series, but I would still recommend this book to others. I also found I could relate to all the characters a lot

This book is pretty good, I highly recommend it to the people who like adventure and mystery books. It was slow and not really enthusiastic at first, but it gradually extended into more of an interesting and mysterious part, and there were some funny lines added in the book, which I think makes the story more likable.

This book is ok, but nothing special. The characters seem kind of forced and the repetitive action scenes get old after a while. I definitely prefer her Unwanteds series.

This book seems slow at first, but I quickly got caught in it and I couldn’t stop reading! I loved it...can’t wait to read the next.

This book really pulls you in. I found it very hard to put down. This book is awesome. I think most people can identify with Charlie and how she deals with these crazy abilitys.

This book was great and thrilling. I found the main character, Charlie, rather boring however. This book is not the best of Lisa McMann's work. No offense to the fans of the book.

If you like adventures and mystery than this is a good book for you. You get really hooked and slowly want to know more and more. This book is about a girl who has a sad time in her life and it slowly gets better but her life also begins to be a mystery. In my opinion this book is five stars!
