The Darkest Part of the Forest

Staff Review: The Darkest Part of the Forest

"The Darkest Part of the Forest" by Holly Black

Cover: 'The Darkest Part of the Forest'

This young adult novel takes us deep into the world of Faerie. Hazel and her brother Ben live in the town of Fairfold where humans and Folk live side by side in an uneasy form of peace. In the woods lies a horned boy in a glass coffin. Tourists come to gawk and debunk him as a myth and the locals adore him. His grove has become the party hangout for generations of local teens. Hazel and Ben have spent their whole childhood making up stories about the horned boy, dreaming up who he would be if he ever awoke. Then one day he does. As Hazel and Ben are swept up in the chaos between two worlds, they must learn to trust each other and discover who they really are. A great tale mixing reality and fantasy, I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure, fairy tales, or remembers the struggle of growing up and finding out who you really are.
