Recommended for: 8th Grade and Up
Based on Little Red Riding Hood, Sisters Red explores themes of psychological trauma, pursuing your life's calling, protecting the innocent, love, loss, and secrets. The suspenseful page-turner will keep you captivated from the vicious wolf attack in the first pages to the thrilling conclusion. Due to the romantic entanglements and violence in these stories, the series is recommended for 8th grade and up. Check out the video below for a teaser for the book, and if you're hooked by Sisters Red, check out the companion book, Sweetly (based on Hansel and Gretel), and the upcoming follow-up, Fathomless (based on The Little Mermaid), coming September 2012.
