Waiting On Wednesday - Nemo

Waiting on Wednesday is a Meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to read!
Title: Wild
Author: Alex Mallory
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: June 8th 2014

In this action-packed and timely "Tarzan for the digital age," Cade, a teen raised in the wilderness, is brought into modern civilization.

The forest is full of secrets, and no one understands that better than Cade. Foraging, hunting, surviving-that's all he knows. Alone for years, Cade believes he's the sole survivor. At least, until he catches a glimpse of a beautiful stranger...

Dara expected to find natural wonders when she set off for a spring break camping trip. Instead, she discovers a primitive boy-he's stealthy and handsome and he might be following her. Intrigued, Dara seeks him out and sets a catastrophe in motion.

Thrust into society, Cade struggles with the realization that the life he knew was a lie. But he's not the only one. Trying to explain life in a normal town leaves Dara questioning it.

As the media swarm and the police close in, Dara and Cade risk everything to get closer. But will the truth about Cade's past tear them apart?

I am obsessed with story retelling's, and this is the first time ever anyone's attempted Tarzan. Not even the hit ABC show Once Upon A Time  has tried to do Tarzan. Wild sounds exhilarating and romantic all wrapped up in suspense.

  3. I've never seen a Tarzan retelling either so I'm definitely intrigued by this one! It sounds awesome!
