This short, but beautiful, fantasy work takes up only 68 pages, but tells a deep story about a world that can only be entered through the deep forest, and only a very few have ever been invited. Brian, an eleven-year-old living with his father who spends all his time in the deep woods beyond their home, meets a girl who knows far more about the woods than he does, and can lead him to places that no one else could ever find, just as she had done for his father years before.

From official release/information:

From publisher's website: Eleven-year-old Brian Page spends every waking moment in the forest behind the house where he lives with his father. But forests are always deeper than anyone can know. Secrets are hidden in the eternal twilight of the trees. Those secrets emerge into light when Brian disappears in the forest, as his father did three decades before. His father, however, came home with no memory of the events in the depths of the forest. What has drawn Brian away? Will he emerge, shuddering and broken, as his father did, or will the forests close around him, as they have done so often before?

The book also includes an essay by the author called "Places and Names."
