The Wilding… stumps me. I just couldn’t connect or get into it. The story itself is rather sweet with two love-birds in juvy; one can get out soon but faces leaving the other behind. What I liked was how the strong one was the one who could get out. He had the most to gain but also the most to lose. So the fact that he throws it all away for love is great… but there was a disconnect along the way. 


Things I Liked:
1 - Originality
2 - Love conquers all

Things I Didn't Like:
1 - The rapping
2 - The disconnect
