Prue McKeel's life is ordinary. That is, until her brother is abducted by a murder of crows and taken to the Impassable Wilderness, a dense, tangled forest on the edge of Portland. No one's ever gone in—or at least returned to tell of it. So begins an adventure that will take Prue and her friend Curtis deep into the Impassable Wilderness. There they uncover a secret world in the midst of violent upheaval—a world full of warring creatures, peaceable mystics, and powerful figures with the darkest intentions. And what begins as a rescue mission becomes something much greater as the two friends find themselves entwined in a struggle for the very freedom of this wilderness. A wilderness the locals call Wildwood.

I loved to read about Prue's journey, but Curtis... no thank you.Overall this was a good book, the stor...
Before anyone chalks this rating up to me being prejudiced against kids' books, I would like to preface this by saying I started this book with a really open mind. And apparently I'm not the only one who found this book tedious. The action was slow, the characters bordered on outright cliche and s...
