About the Author

"I am utterly enchanted by Opal Wei's voice. This book was a magical blend of humor, heartache and romance. Wei sure knows her way around a beautiful sentence and a human heart."--Yulin Kuang, author of How to End a Love Story

"Wild Life is a warm hug of a book anchored by two eminently lovable protagonists who are made for each other. Zoey and Davy's romantic adventure was a joy to read!" --Mia Sosa, USA TODAY bestselling author

"Wild Life is a classic screwball story set in the modern age--creative, compelling, and so witty. Wei delivers laugh out loud moments alongside thoughtful, moving reflections on why and how we love--with sharp, chemistry-laden banter on nearly every page." --Kate Clayborn, author of Georgie, All Along

"Opal Wei takes small town romance one step further in this delightful tiny island screwball romance. Wild Life is an absolutely charming opposites attract story that will have you swooning for Davy, feeling for Zoey, and swearing to stay away from geese."---Lily Chu, author of The Stand In and The Comeback

"Wei is a miracle-worker. Wild Life somehow manages to combine a delightful homage to Bringing Up Baby's screwball antics with a thoroughly modern romance--one remarkable for its warm intelligence, wit, and complexity. Zoey and Davy are an incredibly charming central couple." -Olivia Dade, nationally bestselling author of Spoiler Alert and Ship Wrecked

"Wild Life is a delightful romp of a romance that will win readers' hearts. As the characters look for a missing slide and deal with disasters of all types, Opal Wei handles their personal struggles with a sensitive touch." -Jackie Lau, author of The Stand-Up Groomsman

"Wei's (Clean Breaks, as Ruby Lang) steamy, slow-burn stranger-to-lovers romance is a great read."--Library Journal

"[...] Wei balances their relationship with delightfully wacky comedic scenes. This whirlwind opposites-attract romance offers plenty to enjoy."--Library Journal

"Wei writes well-drawn, one-of-a-kind characters that will elicit readers' sympathy and laughter as they spur each other to grow and change. Put together the aforementioned sexual chemistry, a big cat (heard but not seen) and geese (both seen and heard, eliciting an appropriate amount of terror, if one knows geese) and the result is a vibrant, fast-paced and highly entertaining romance." --BookPage
