Wild Girls by Pat Murphy

Wild GirlsWhen Joan moves from Connecticut to California, she’s prepared to be miserable; after all, she doesn’t want to leave her whole life behind her and be the new kid in town. But then she meets Sarah, a girl in her neighborhood who loves to play in the woods, catch lizards in the creek, and climb trees. Sarah is nothing like the girlie-girls at school who talk about shopping and lip gloss all day. Soon, Joan and Sarah become kindred spirits and begin writing a story together about “the wild girls” who live in the woods. When the story wins a contest, the girls are recruited to join a special writing class at UC Berkley. There, they learn about friendship, creativity, family, and what it takes to remain “wild” when everyone else is trying to make them tame.
