** spoiler alert ** Into the Wildewood continues the adventures of Keelie Heartwood -- a teenage girl who has recently discovered that she was half-elf and could talk to trees. Her father -- the elf -- is a furniture builder at Ren Faires and Keelie is still getting used to living in that world.

Then, she sees a sick unicorn and realizes that the trees are angry and sick. Although her father tells her to keep out of the forest, she keeps going back to try to help the unicorn.

There is also some struggle with settling in with the Ren Faire and trying to work at the various jobs. I particularly like the minor characters -- like the band of Merry Men and the Pickle Man -- who don't add much to the plot, but add quite a bit of Rennie flavor.

And, fine for the middle school set. No naughtiness except a discussion of a character not being able to see unicorns anymore for obvious reasons.
