About the Author

Rory Power grew up in New England, where she lives and works as a crime fiction editor and story consultant for TV adaptation. She received a Masters in Prose Fiction from the University of East Anglia and thinks fondly of her time there, partially because she learned a lot but mostly because there were a ton of bunnies on campus. Wilder Girls is her debut novel.

Finally, Rory Power combines the challenges of dystopian survival with the dynamics of boarding school life in the wholly original and compelling Wilder Girls. It is 18 months since Raxter school for girls was quarantined following the outbreak of a deadly virus that kills adults and turns girls' bodies strange and foreign. Both their remote island setting and the girls themselves become ever more wild and dangerous as they await the promised cure. Power's dark, lyrical tale challenges expectations at every turn; a paean to the power of female friendships. -- Fiona Noble * Observer *

This gritty, lush debut chronicling psychological and environmental tipping points . . . weaves a chilling narrative that disrupts readers' expectations through an expertly crafted, slow-burn reveal of the deadly consequences of climate change . . .

Power's evocative, haunting, and occasionally gruesome debut will challenge readers to ignore its bewitching presence. * Booklist, Starred Review *
