Wunderkids | Can’t Wait Wednesday #14

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, created to discuss books that book bloggers haven’t read yet and they’re usually books yet to be released. I ran across it when looking for new content ideas for The Book Blog Life, and it looked like so much fun. Playing by the rules didn’t last all that long and we’re back to books that have been sat on my shelves for way too long. 

Wunderkids | Can’t Wait Wednesday #14Wunderkids by Jacqueline Silvester
Genres: YA

15-year-old Nikka is invited to attend Wildwood Academy, a prestigious but secret boarding school for talented youth located deep in the Californian mountains. Once there, Nikka quickly falls in love with her bizarre classes, the jaw-dropping scenery and... two very different boys.

However, Wildwood Academy has a dark and twisted secret, one that could cost Nikka the one thing she had never imagined she could lose, the one thing that money can’t buy. It is this very thing that Wildwood Academy was created to steal.

Nikka can stay and lose everything, or she can risk death and run.

***About the Author***

Jacqueline has had a colourful and dual life thus far; she's lived in a refugee camp in Sweden, a castle in France, a village in Germany, and spent her formative years in between Los Angeles, London and New York. As a result, she speaks four languages. Jacqueline has a Bachelors in English Literature from the University Of Massachusetts, and a Masters in Screenwriting from Royal Holloway, University Of London. After graduating she wrote her first novel and began writing cartoon screenplays. The two years she spent in an arts boarding school in the woods have inspired the particular world described in her debut novel Wunderkids. She lives in London with her husband, her excessive YA collection and a hyper husky named Laika.

Wunderkids has been translated into a number of languages and featured in Vogue magazine!

This book has been on my shelf for so so long. I really need to get reading it. I picked it up at YALC last year and just haven’t made it a priority, so that definitely needs to change! It’s gotten good reviews on Goodreads so hopefully it will be a good read. I don’t know about anyone else but I love books set in a school setting, I suppose Harry Potter really did a number on me.

Have you read Wunderkids? Let me know what you thought in the comments!

    A boarding school with secrets! This sounds irresistible! I hope you love it. I know all too well about unread books sitting on my shelves still. I need to work on that more. Have a great day!
