From Publishers Weekly

"A powerful story of children left homeless after the Russian Revolution," declared PW, reviewing this award-winner by the gifted poet and author. Holman's novel is rooted in actual events and, through 12-year-old Alex, the reader experiences the tragedy of uncared-for boys and girls in the aftermath of war.

I think that this novel was pretty decent. It was interesting and based on real facts, as well as some embelished truth. I enjoyed reading this book a lot. The author made it to keep your attention, and succeeded. It kept my attention from start to finish. However, it could have been a bit more up-to-date as far as the language. But all in all it was a great novel.

I do recommand you to read this book if you are a child wanting to know about life. This book explains how life in the 1920's was for people with no money. If you grow up poor you should read this book. If you know parents growing up than this is a good book to check out. If you like sad things than this is for you.

I thought the book was ok. It would teach kids about what or what not to do. It tells you to not steal, but that is how the children had to survive. The wild children also was interesting because they survived in hard ways, but tried their hardest. It was kind of gross when Kostia ate human flesh.

I thought "The Wild Children" by Felice Holman was an interesting book but to me it seemed a little boring. It was interesting because some of the things in the book are still happening today. Like all the homeless people we have. It was boring because nothing hardly ever happend.
