My fiance says she read a fantasy book in seventh grade, but can't remember the author or much of the story line. She says the book cover was of a tree trunk in slight shadow and also a boy with skin like tree bark. She was in seventh grade in 1999, so I know the book is older than that. The book might also be more on the dark side of fantasy.

  • We will assume, since you don't specify otherwise, that the book was in English, but it might help if you told us what country she was in when she read it. Dec 29 '15 at 5:06

This seems to be the most common cover:

*The Frightened Forest*
