WILDWOOD – Colin Meloy

wildwood The plot is appealing, and is sufficiently complex that I was curious about what was going to happen, but the writing style is too firmly grounded in the grade-school audience. Which is fine- the main character is a 7th grader, after all- but it was just too much for me. That said, I suspect this is a really awesome book and would encourage anyone who finds the blurb interesting to give it a try. (And the illustrations are pretty cute, too.)
