I was looking for a unique food book and I sure found one. Fern knows the edible foods in the woods behind her house and forages to help feed her struggling family. A fracking company threatens to clear out the woods and the food source that Fern and her family rely on. But it also offers stable jobs. Tough choices.... This multi-layered book addresses poverty, education, natural resources, environmental protection, and conflicts between family, friends, and community. As a bonus, End of the Wild includes recipes from the forest that once belonged to Fern's mother.

Starred reviews by Kirkus and PW. A solid good read.
