Set in the near-future, Into the Forest is a powerfully imagined novel that focuses on the relationship between two teenage sisters living alone in their Northern California forest home.

Over 30 miles from the nearest town, and several miles away from their nearest neighbor, Nell and Eva struggle to survive as society begins to decay and collapse around them. No single event precedes society's fall. There is talk of a war overseas and upheaval in Congress, but it still comes as a shock when the electricity runs out and gas is nowhere to be found. The sisters consume the resources left in the house, waiting for the power to return. Their arrival into adulthood, however, forces them to reexamine their place in the world and their relationship to the land and each other.

Reminiscent of Margaret Atwood's A Handmaid's Tale, Into the Forest is a mesmerizing and thought-provoking novel of hope and despair set in a frighteningly plausible near-future America.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

was not sure what to expect
February 21st, 2015
I read that this is going to be coming out as a movie with Ellen Paige so I thought I would read it. It's only about 200 pages. The first half was slow moving but the second half picked up. However, in my opinion not in a good direction. I had no idea what it was supposed to be about which may have been a large part of the problem. But I read a couple parts that actually made me roll my eyes and think "oh really, Come on now." For me personally this book was just too 'out there'.
