Wilhelmina Silver's world is golden. Living half-wild on an African farm with her horse, her monkey and her best friend, every day is beautiful. But when her home is sold and Will is sent away to boarding school in England, the world becomes impossibly difficult. For lions and hyenas are nothing compared to packs of schoolgirls.Where can a girl run to in London? And will she have the courage to survive?
I think this is good book about excitement because the girl in the story runs away from the England boarding school she has got sent to after her farther died. Her step mum sent her to boarding school; she really did not fit in so she ran away. I would put 9 plus because there is bulling and she runs away from the school.
