Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce

By Rhea

Sisters Red, by Jackson Pearce, is spin on Little Red Riding Hood.  Scarlett and Rosie are two girls living by themselves.  They live alone since the death of their grandmother, who was killed by a Fenris, or a werewolf.  One the night of the death of their grandmother, Scarlett defended her sister, and ended up with scars and the loss of an eye.  Rosie remained unharmed.  Now both sisters hunt the Fenris to save others from a fate like their grandmother’s.  Both girls wear their red cloaks, a color that the Fenris love, and try to attract the Fenris in order to destroy them.  But the Fenris start to show up more and more, and they seem stronger than ever before.  They are looking for a Potential, a specific person who can easily become a werewolf.  To stop the werewolves for killing any others, and to find the potential, the girls and their friend, Silas, move to the city.  But there is even more danger in the city, especially when one is not being careful…

Sisters Red is an amazing book!  I loved this book.  Everything about it was good.  It had a good storyline without any holes, and the characters were realistic.  The twist at the end was also pretty surprising, which made the story even better.  I do not have any complaints about this book.  This is the best modern fairytale I have read, and I have read a lot of these kinds of books.  This was a great book and a must read!

Red Riding Hood, by Sarah Blakley-Cartwright, is another spin on the classic story about Little Red Riding Hood. Valerie lives in the town of Daggorhorn with her parents and older sister where every month the people of the town offer an offering to keep the town’s werewolf at bay. The girls and their friends go to a campfire when they see that the moon seems red.  There is a blood moon, which means that in this time the werewolf can create another werewolf.  The girls split up into smaller groups and quickly retreat home.  Then, Valerie’s sister is found dead, killed by the wolf, and so begins the hunt for the horrible creature.  The creature is one of the residents of Daggerhorn, but no one knows who, which just adds to the tension.  There is only one way to stop the problems, and that is to kill the werewolf before the blood moon wanes, before it has the chance to make another werewolf.  But who is it?

Red Riding Hood is pretty good, considering that it is a book based on a script, which has also been made into a movie.  It is a pretty quick read with an interesting plot.  I found one fault with the book.  The ending of the actual book is good, but it leaves the reader hanging, which is slightly annoying.  However, one can go online and read the actual last chapter of the book.  While this chapter ties up some loose ends, it still leaves one hanging and it contradicts the last chapter of the book.  Aside from this, the book is good.

New Moon

New Moon, by Stephenie Meyer [Teen Fiction]

Reviewed by Sierra, 7th grader

New Moon by Stephenie Meyer is the second book in the Twilight series. This book continues the adventures in Bella Swan’s crazy life. After falling in love with a vampire, Edward Cullen, she soon realizes that she cannot live without him. On her 18th birthday party at the Cullens’ house, she gets a paper cut and Edward’s brother Jasper leaps at her. Edward thought it would be safest for Bella if him and his family left. (this was not the first time her life was in danger bacause of him) Bella could not live life normally without Edward, until she met Jacob Black. She spends all of her time with him to ease the pain she has. But Jacob soon becomes a werewolf, and Edward believes that Bella is dead. Bella ends up having to go save Edward before he tries to kill himself. This book is full of excitement, danger, and romance. I would suggest reading New Moon in the near future.
