Out of the Wild
The Wild, the terrible mass of vines that traps fairy-tale creatures in their stories and swipes their memories, is finally gone for good and life for 12 year old Julie is back to normal (well, as normal as it can get when you live in a community of fairy-tale creatures). Just when Julie, her mom Rapunzel (yes, the one with the long hair), and her brother Puss-In-Boots think the excitement is over, a sudden surprise awaits them: Julie's dad (and Rapunzel's prince) is freed from the Wild! Julie is thrilled-and then the trouble begins. A princess is kidnapped, and Julie's dad sets off to free her, committing other fairy-tale actions that make The Wild grow-are they on purpose? Julie must follow him from the Big Apple to Disneyland in order to save the world from the wrath of the Wild. But what she doesn't know is that someone very familiar could be very dangerous...Can Julie stop her dad in time? Can she fight against the forces of the Wild and save everyone she loves-and her peaceful world? And can Julie and her family have a happily-ever-after? With a colorful set of characters, an intriguing and well-written plot, and enchantment, fun, romance, and adventure, Out of the Wild by Sarah Beth Durst, (the author of Into the Wild) has created yet another fantastic fantasy masterpiece, coming out on June 19th!
