It's tough being Rapunzel's daughter. Sometimes all Julie wants is to live a normal life instead of having magical items she can't use locked in the linen closet and having a cat for a brother. But that all comes with the territory when your mother is a legend among her own kind. Rapunzel, owner of Rapunzel's Hair Salon, is the hero who helped all the fairy tale characters, including Goldilocks, Cinderella, and others, escape the Wild Wood, where they were trapped in their stories--living them over and over again.
Now, they all live relatively normal lives in the real world. And Julie is stuck in the middle. She knows too much about the Wild Wood to be a normal junior high school student. But she's not quite as special as her mother's fairy tale friends.
But that in-the-middle status will come in handy when the Wild Wood starts taking over and finding new stories in which to trap people. Julie is the only one who can stop the Wild from growing.
Fairy tale fans will love Into the Wild''s unusual look at fairy tales from an outsider's perspective. This light-hearted fantasy-adventure will be familiar and new at the same time to most middle school readers.
