She couldn't walk into the Wild and intentionally use fairy-tale items. She'd only be making things worse. p.76I picked this up on the recommendation of Bookworm Nation and I'm glad I did. It was a very cute book. I liked the take on what would happen when the characters escape from their fairy tales and the idea that they are trapped there in an endless cycle. It would be interesting to read the story of how they escaped. That would make an excellent book. But the "what happens later" concept of this book was also fun.
Into the Wild was obviously written for a younger set than what I usually read. It definitely has more of a kid's book feel to it. It reminded me a lot of Labyrinth. There are even some similarities in plotting and in the dénouement. Julie is a fun and feisty character and I like how she used her difference from everyone else to help her mother. And, of course, it was fun to see the fariy tale characters in real life and how they survived and what they became. That was one of the main reason I liked this book.
