Staff Reviews

Lisa McMann has done it again, with a sequel even better than the original Going Wild. The first book left readers in suspense, wondering the fate of Charlie’s father, who was abducted by Dr. Gray. In the sequel, we follow Charlie & her friends as they work to rescue him. In an exciting twist, it is not only Charlie that has a magical bracelet, but also her friends. They must learn to harness their new animal powers as they fight evil. This book is action-packed, never leaving the reader with a dull scene. The author has created incredible characters that are relatable & inspiring—it draws you in & keeps you interested through the whole story. I definitely recommend this amazing book!

The Avengers meets Animorphs in the second book of this epic series from Lisa McMann, New York Times bestselling author of the Unwanteds and Unwanteds Quests. “Kids will go wild for Going Wild!” raved Newbery Medal–winning author Katherine Applegate.

The Going Wild series highlights the unbelievable (and completely true) abilities that animals possess, and it’s perfect for Marvel fans and middle grade readers who enjoy an exciting mix of action, humor, and heart. “Fans of Rick Riordan and Brandon Mull will not be disappointed,” proclaimed School Library Journal.

In Predator vs. Prey, Charlie Wilde’s dad has been abducted by masked figures who might not even be completely human. And it will take more than her incredible bracelet—which gives her powers from the animal kingdom—to rescue him.

Luckily, Charlie’s friends now have bracelets of their own with all-new abilities…they just have to work through a few issues first. Maria’s device has hair-raising side effects. Mac can’t wait to hack into his. And their frenemy, Kelly, swears hers is a dud. If Charlie is going to have any hope of saving her dad—and the world—from their beastly foes, she’ll have to help her friends master their powers and come together as a team.

Praise For…

Praise for the GOING WILD series: “A gripping, can’t-put-down trilogy. Once again, Lisa McMann demonstrates her remarkable ability to create action-packed fantasies filled with humor and heart. Kids will go wild for Going Wild!”

“Going Wild has it all—drama, soccer, and superpowers, with a heroine who is super, sure, but also incredibly real and down-to-earth. As much as readers will be amazed by what Charlie can do, they’ll cheer for her because she’s the superhero next door.”

“Like no other writer, Lisa McMann creates real, lovable characters and then yanks their lives inside out with nail-biting suspense, a shocker at every turn, and stakes that climb to crazy, impossible heights. I hope it’s not rude to beg for the sequel, because the line begins here.”

“A fast-paced adventure with a very likable heroine. Fans of Rick Riordan and Brandon Mull will not be disappointed.”

“Blending action, fantasy, and sci-fi with tween angst, this is poised to be a hit with the legions of fans of the Unwanteds series.”

“Filled with action, adventure, and a good dollop of wish fulfillment, McMann’s superhero origin story should capture the imagination of any reader who wonders what it would be like to be more than just an average kid.”
