In Into the Wild Sarah Beth Durst brings to life all those fairy tale characters that we all grew up with. Only they aren't the way that we remember them. For one thing, these fairy tale characters have escaped their stories and are now living among us. They have also captured The Wild - which is the mythical forest which had held them for centuries. The Wild is a vine like thing that is currently being kept under Julie's bed and kept under control by Julie's mother, Rapunzel or Zel for short.

Only The Wild is tired of being contained and somehow manages to escape, growing quickly and devouring up the town that Julie has grown up in and reclaiming not just the fairy tale characters that escaped but claiming new ones in the town residents. It is then left to Julie and her brother Boots, that's Puss in Boots, to try and rescuing her mother, the other characters and her town.

Overall, this was a story that I enjoyed. I have always been a fan of fairy tales and this was a new take on them. Though at times its hard to image the characters that I knew and loved as a child living ordinary lives with jobs, bills and divorce. There were times when the pacing was a little slow but once the Julie really started to travel in the Wild things did pick up. I think the thing that kept me from loving this novel is that it falls more on the younger side of the young adult spectrum. That side the writing was solid and the world building was creative and interesting. This is a series that all those who enjoy fairy tales will probably enjoy and I will definitely be checking out the follow up to this titles, Out of the Wild.
