It is the year 2035, and kids are the only ones who matter.

In Toms world, every family has only one child. Brother and sister are insults. And the Oldies, like GandyToms grandfatherare taken away to Memory Theme Parks. On the way to the Theme Park, Gandy escapes into the Wild Wood, the dangerous world outside their walled city. Tom has no choice but to follow. The wilderness is like nowhere hes ever been before, and the more he learns at Gandys side, the more he wonders: Is the wall meant to keep the Outsiders out, as hes been taught in schoolor the Insiders in?

Nina Bawdens skill is placing a set of vibrant characters in a compelling plot seasoned with cold reality, the warmth of enduring relationships, and moral ironies.Kirkus Reviews
