Alicia sets out on a difficult journey to discover a way home, finding compassion and friendship along the way. Her new friends help her fight terrible foes and they come face to face with an ancient creature, huge and fearsome. These friends help each other in every way imaginable through both moments of adventure and terror. Though Alicia and her friends work together to overcome challenges and crippling fear, can they find a way to stop “The Drying” which threatens them all?
"Foster structures his debut novel along the archetypal lines of The Wizard of Oz… Alicia goes on a dangerous journey to Gran’Tree… Alicia does come across as an intelligent, science-minded heroine for the modern era, and the story has a fresh ecological focus.”
“An enchantingly magical tale about finding friends in the unlikeliest of people and working together with them to achieve your wildest dreams.”
—Emily, 7th Grade Student
"I absolutely loved reading the book. It felt familiar, like reading a favorite fable, or following Dorothy on her journey to Oz... it is a girl having the adventure and using her brains."
—Jo, Retired Teacher
In the dark of night, fourteen-year-old Alicia wakes to a mysterious voice calling to her—or was it only a dream? The next day, taking a break from school assignments, she ventures outside her family’s cabin, but is stunned and confused to find her parents frozen inside an amber bubble. No matter how loud she screams or how hard she beats on the barrier, her parents don’t respond. Alicia has a gut wrenching feeling that the Wild Side, a magical and dangerous realm, is what called her and caused this. Only she can travel to the Wild Side and free them, but can she survive the trials ahead?
—Katrina Smith, 7th Grade Student
“…I like the plot of this sequel; it doesn’t seem too forced and makes sense considering the first book. This book left me satisfied... The problem was solved sufficiently yet still left me wanting to read the next book, and the writing of Alicia’s inner thoughts and general descriptions helped me to connect to the characters and the story...”
