You know things are going to suck when you’re the new kid. But when you’re the new kid and a vampire… well, it bites!

Unlike most kids, Scarlet Small’s problems go far beyond just trying to fit in. She would settle for a normal life, but being twelve years old for an entire century is a real pain in the neck. Plus, her appetite for security guards, house pets and bloody tom

Scarlet Small was new in town. Her dad, Drac, is in the army, and they moved a lot. Scarlet was scared of her new school. It smelled of werewolf. It didn’t help that at her old school, she was friendless and ridiculed. A lot. Did I happen to mention that Scarlet Small and her “parents” are vampires? And that Scarlet is over a century old? In a 12-year-old body? So far, school is going great for her, until Scarlet meets Ethan. She is sure that he is the werewolf she smells, which is bad, because ...more

I had the pleasure of reading Cinderskella by Amie and Bethanie Borst last year, and enjoyed Little Dead Riding Hood just as much. A scene from this story gave me the feeling a third book in the Scarily Ever Laughter series is in the making and am already looking forward to it.

This awesome morbid twist on the Little Red Riding Hood story we grew up with was as fun and funny as I expected it to be. It started off with a young looking vampire named Scarlet starting the 6th grade (AGAIN!) in a new

A witty, fun retelling with humorous, quirky characters that sure do know how to get in trouble!

Vamps are my favorite kind of paranormal creature and Scarlet Small is no exception. (I need to get a fedora and a pair of Doc Martins!)

I really love how this mom and daughter duo bring their stories to life so vibrantly. This is certainly a series worth reading and worth telling your friends about.

even better than the last,,i love this series,,,such a talented author,,cant wait for the rest,,,,

I do enjoy a GOOD retelling of a story, as they are often hard to get right or have so little to do with the source tale that they are unrecognizable. For the most part, LDRH succeeded as a retelling. But to me, it's almost as if it could have been two separate stories.

Our little dead riding hood is vampire and unfortunately perpetual sixth grader, Scarlet Small. She has to move often, due to her dad's military job and the fact that vampires just can't stay in one place for very long. J

Scarlet Small is a vampire...

But, you shouldn't know that.

Scarlet is in her afterlife. Well, forever EVER afterlife anyway. And she's starting middle school again, but she's actually made a friend this time. Besides that being different, she has absolutely no interest in blowing her cover in front of her peers. But, luckily her friend doesn't cause Scarlet to have the urge to suck her blood (this might be the best year ever!!) downside is the friend has a major 'thing' with a disgusting dog (ugh

Happy Halloween everyone! I've saved a very special and holiday appropriate review for today. It is "Little Dead Riding Hood", part of the Scarily Ever Laughter series. The first book, "Cinderskella", I reviewed a year ago today. These books are Middle Grade books, with the main character being in 6th grade.

Scarlett Small is a vampire. She is sarcastic and has more of the glass is half empty sort of attitude. It's not easy being a vampire and the daughter of Drac and Mort!

There are several thing

This book is just as endearing and clever as the first book and a must-share with my middle grade children and friends. It's full of crazy antics and deep emotions as Scarlet faces a new town with very old problems. Despite that I'm not a vampire and haven't had to live for years in a twelve-year-old body (thank goodness!) Scarlet is so easy to relate to. You'll be cheering and groaning and wishing you could help her. I don't want to give anything away, but the twist in this one is so perfect! I ...more

This companion novel to Cinderskella bites! Readers who enjoyed Ella's tale will love the story of Scarlet even more. Middle-Graders should pick up this book and fall into the spooky town of magical beings. Overall 4/5 stars; I hope there's another book in the series!
