wildwoodThe journey starts with Prue McKeel, a 12 year old girl living in Portland, OR, and her baby brother Mac. The duo runs around town playing and doing errands (like returning Prue’s long overdue library books!), when things suddenly take a turn for the mysterious and magical with a murder of crows swooping down and snatching Mac!

Prue and her classmate, Curtis, must then venture into the woods to find where her brother has been taken and bring him home, meeting all sorts of creatures along the way and finding a whole secret society in the forest just outside of town. At a lexile level of 900, this book makes a great summer read for kids entering middle or high school.

Check the PPLC Catalog for Wildwood.
