I adored Into the Wild, so I was super excited to get my hands on its sequel. While Into the Wild is probably my favorite of the two, I'm happy to report that Out of the Wild is another tremendously fun, fairytale-filled book.
Out of the Wild reads more like an action-adventure story than its predecessor. Julie takes a crazy, magical journey across the country as the Wild becomes an even bigger threat than she could've imagined. This time things really take a toll on the fairytale world.
I liked how the characters had to grow and deal with all the new changes. Julie learns that you can't always go back to the way you used to be: sometimes you have to change your outlook and adapt to a new way of things. As always, all of the fairytale allusions, from the well-known stories to the lesser-known ones, were wonderful. I would recommend these books to any hardcore lover of fairytales and adventure.
