Poppy McVie

I am finally back now, my lovely fellow bookworms!

To begin my return, I wanted to focus on giving a theme song to one of my current favourite book characters; Poppy McVie. Poppy McVie is the title character in Kimberli A. Bindschatel’s Poppy McVie Adventure books. A feisty Special Operations agent with a passion for protecting animals, Poppy is the kind of character that teenage girls would find to be a good role model. She isn’t afraid t0 be who she is and stand up for what she believes in.

This brings me to a song that I believe perfectly encapsulates her character: Something Wild by Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness and Lindsey Stirling. As a longtime fan of Andrew McMahon from his beginnings with the band Something Corporate, to the more popular Jack’s Mannequin and now to his current act, his team up with violin virtuoso Lindsey Stirling brings about a beautiful song.

The following lyric is one that I believe captures the essence of Poppy McVie:

“The way you see the world, it got you this far. You might have some bruises and a few scars, but you know you’re going to be okay.”

More about Poppy McVie will be coming to Bookworm Buzzes soon, as I am currently reading the newest instalment of the series Operation Grizzly Camp.
