Keena Roberts' debut novel WILD LIFE covers the sixteen years she spent in Botswana with her primatologist parents and the many ways in which she almost died in various animal encounters, as well as assorted adventures in home plumbing, DIY car maintenance, and snake killing. Her book also describes her transition into the world of an American teenager and how she eventually learned that all the things that made her weird and different in America were actually the things she loved most about herself. Though she now lives full time in America and admits to owning a washing machine, she still travels back to Botswana as often as possible.
