Red Riding Hood by Catherine Hardwicke - Book Review by Mariah

I found this book exceptionally good. It's based on the original fairy tale,but it also has lots of flavor added to it. The one thing that bothered me about it was that it doesn't give you the full ending that the movie it's based on gives you. It makes sense though, considering that they want you to pay to watch the movie as well. However, if you compare the two I prefer the book because it gives a more thorough look into the characters and their past. I'd have to give this a rating of great, because I was captivated the whole time I was reading it. The theme would have to be romance/ mystery. It's readers should be around 13-17 give or take.

Rating: - Great!

After her sister's violent death, Valerie's world begins to spiral out of control. For generations, the werewolf has been kept at bay with a monthly sacrifice. But no one is safe. When an expert wolf hunter arrives, the villagers learn that the creature lives among them - it could be anyone in town.
