This will be an odd review. Why? I'm not going to rate it. Why? Because I didn't like it, but think you will. This is a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. In this book, our red riding hood comes in the form of a biracial boy, Ryder, that wears a red zip-up hoodie and our wolf comes in the form of a young teen girl with nowhere to go. The writing style is very poetic. No, it doesn't rhyme, but what poetry has to? But still, you will feel a rhythm. I read it relatively quickly because I was just flipping Kindle pages like crazy. I was bored after I got passed my initial 'this is a really cool concept' because it just felt like this long game of cat and mouse between Ryder and Piper's wolf and then Piper's maker. So I mean ... I didn't like the book at all but really think the majority will so I definitely encourage you to get it.

Kenya Wright It did have a really cool poetic feel to it. Very informative review.
I did end up enjoying it... but then... I loved the book The Haunted Vagina.
