內容簡介

我想再次在大草原下,盡情翻滾跳躍…

Wilhelmina 是自小生長在非洲辛巴威的白人,家裡經營農場。她的玩伴是馬、猴子、農場工人的小孩,以及辛巴威黑人;河流、大草原是他們的遊戲場。每天,他們盡情跑跳,無憂無慮。

不料,家庭遭逢巨變,Wilhelmina新的監護人決定把她送到英國寄宿學校。在學校,習慣和文化都和同學格格不入的Wilhelmina成為同學眼中的怪咖,遭到排擠、訕笑。她覺得土狼和獅子都比女孩可愛多了!來到倫敦就像關進牢籠, Wilhelmina好想鼓起勇氣逃離倫敦,但逃離真的有用嗎? 什麼才是真正的勇氣呢?

Even a life on the untamed plains of Africa can’t prepare Wilhelmina for the wilds of an English boarding school in this “gripping, magical, and heartwarming tale of resilience, friendship, and hope” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

Wilhelmina Silver’s world is golden. Living half-wild on an African farm with her horse, her monkey, and her best friend, every day is beautiful. But when her home is sold and Will is sent away to boarding school in England, the world becomes impossibly difficult. Lions and hyenas are nothing compared to packs of vicious schoolgirls. Where can a girl run to in London? And will she have the courage to survive?

From the author of Rooftoppers, which Booklist called “a glorious adventure,” comes an utterly beautiful story that’s “a treasure of a book” (VOYA).
