Sixteen-year-old Jessica Rainville's dream of working with exotic animals is about to come true. She's signed up to spend a summer learning to train and care for tigers, lions, leopards, bears, and elephants at an exotic animal ranch.
She will pet tigers, train grizzly bears, ride bareback on elephants, and despite her efforts, she will fall in love.
But Jessica's summer at the exotic animal ranch will test her in ways that she never imagined. And just one mistake can mean the difference between life and death.
Wild Animal School is a romantic young adult contemporary coming-of-age novel that is a must-read for animal lovers, especially those who have ever considered a career working with animals, from zookeeper to animal trainer.
I found this book to be a very interesting story. It was a page turner I couldn't put it down. I feel the author is a talented writer. The way the author writes makes you feel like you are apart of the story. While reading this story I pretended to be an animal trainer too. I would recommend everyone should read this book.

Here is a blurb of what the book is about. Only four months left, then Dave Martinez is a free man.
Dave is an eight- grader at Lakeville Boarding School, the school for boys with unexplored potential( aka losers). If he can control his impulse to steal, he can return home and attend regular public school. If he doesn't, he will be sent to Birmingham High, the worst high school on the planet, and his life will be doomed forever. For just a few more months , he needs to stay out of trouble and keep a low profile. And he's pretty good at that.
Then Dave gets a new roommate, Tom Grant. Tom is allergic to boring and doesn't know how to listen to rules. His wild plans involve all of his roommates, especially Dave. They're dragged along with Tom as he hunts animals ( and teachers in pajamas),goes sledding on cafeteria trays, and drives bulldozers through the night. Dave's chance's of keeping a low profile are going down the drain.
I enjoyed this book. I think 7 th and 8 th graders and high school kids would like to read this book because it is geared towards them.
I loved the ending of this book. I thought the message of this book is choose your friends carefully.
Sure Tom got Dave into trouble a lot but it turns out Tom was a good friend to have.
