Overview

Three years older now, our heroine Alicia is on the annual family visit to their mountain cabin in the wilds of Idaho. This is the last summer before starting high school and she finds herself spending more time in the cabin completing summer assignments made by her teachers than doing her normal mountain cabin activities: exploration, discovery, and games of imagination.

On a particularly normal day, Alicia takes a break from her school assignments and ventures outside expecting to see her father Richard chopping or stacking wood, and her mother Katie focused on her latest painting of the beautiful surroundings. She was stunned and confused to find them both seemingly frozen, trapped inside an amber-colored bubble. No matter how loud she screamed or how hard she beat on the bubble, her parents did not move a muscle, nor did they breathe.

The frightened teenager had a gut-wrenching feeling that she was the only one who could save them. Alicia had heard unusual sounds during this visit, as if someone or something was calling to her. With the discovery of her parents in amber, she had the sudden realization that the Wild Side might be calling her back. This time, she prepared herself by filling a backpack with things she did not have three years ago when she somehow walked through the portal to the other side.

With food, supplies, and an extra layer of clothes, she ventures on the most important adventure she has had in her short life. Somehow, Alicia knew she had to get back to the wild side to free her parents from the bubble and she knew that she must be prepared for anything.

Once on the other side, Alicia finds herself fearing for her life in the search for answers to the mystery that holds her parents captive. She befriends Tawny, a frighteningly beautiful cougar who becomes her ally and protector when Alicia decides to look for “The Ancients,” beings that her friends in the Wild Side had talked about three years ago. She felt in her heart that they could help her. But can she succeed against the odds?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"...the fact that I had finished the book made me sad, I had gotten emotionally attached to all of the characters because the book the book was so captivating .."

——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 satisfiied... 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...”

——Emily Burroughs, 8th Grade Student

The characters come to life because they took these fiictional characters and really gave them life by allowing them to talk and feel. But when you have a talking tree, some wouldn’t believe that it’s a real thing. But we're in the We in the Wild Side, and anything can be real.”

——Briana Lopez, 7th Grade Student

"…The ending felt like I had been going on this adventure with them which made me really sad when she had to leave Tawny in the Wild Side. But through her power of connecting to people, she was able to get her parents back. The strongest theme in this story is to always look to your friends for help…”

——Andrew Silva-Silva, 8th Grade Student
