Scarlett and Rosie March live with an unfortunate truth. As they say, with great power and knowledge comes great responsibility. They were born into a family with the knowledge and vengeance to slay werewolves surrounding their rural and quaint hometown. As the sisters take on the wolves in this modern retelling of "Little Red Riding Hood," they are kneaded into a tale that starts to entwine itself into their lives more than they know.

I love fairy tales! I even took an Honors Colloquial in college called "The Art of the Fairy Tale" and adored it. When this book was recommended to me through various book-tubers on YouTube, I knew I had to give it a chance. I love the subtle nods to the original tales while still making it a completely unique story! For example: the reddish names of the girls, the cloaks, the WEREwolves, the woodsman friend, the list goes on. Jackson Pearce did an incredible job of linking back to the original tale and putting her own spin on it at the same time! Her writing is luscious in description, and the back-and-forth of POV kept it interesting! I definitely recommend this book to lovers of the modern fairy tale, and YA girls in general!
