The Wild Chicks

(The first book in the Wild Chicks series)
A novel by

The series that launched Cornelia Funke as one of the most beloved authors in German, THE WILD CHICKS is a middle-grades to YA series about a group of German girls who form the eponymous "Wild Chicks" gang. Funke began the series after her editor's request for a story "without fairies, ghosts, or pirates," and was adamant about creating a realistic story, with relatable characters and adventures any child could have. THE WILD CHICKS pulls from Funke's own suburban German upbringing and takes place in the late 20th century - before the popularization of cellphones, Wi-Fi, and many of the things that children now use to amuse themselves indoors. The members of the Wild Chicks gang - Charlie, Freya, Trudie, and Melanie - don't have perfect families, but they have each other, humor, and plenty of adventures!
