Red is 16 and lives with Granny in a cottage in the village, where boarding up the house and hiding during wolftime is a means of survival. Red help's Granny with Granny's baked good business, catering as well as door-to-door (in a basket) sales. Red has a constant internal battle between her wild side and her strict, overprotective upbringing, and the issue of "control" as she discovers she has a hot temper when the "mean girls" push her too far. ("When we learn to control it, we needn't fear it," Rumpelstiltskin says in the series.) She has flashbacks to her 13th year when she recieved her cloak and the nickname "Red." She is plagued by nightmares that she doesn't understand, but the Once Upon a Time fans will recognize them as her wolf side coming. Also, the forest creatures that used to accompany her on her deliveries are suddenly afraid of her once she turns 13. She'll be taller and faster than the others at her school, and witty and strong on the outside, though she has a soft side as well. Red balances the difficult times with Granny at home and the girls at school with an emerging and satisfying romance with Peter.

Love this book. Wondering what happened to Peter though. Feel like it was a cliff hanger and there should be another book. But cant find one. But Great read.

I should really go find out what the name of a Once Upon A Time fan is called. I wouldn't consider myself a HUGE fan, but I do like the show and its characters. I found it quite interesting that they went and had this novel written about Red and what she had to go through. I am sure most people are familiar with the classical folktale, that results in a beheaded wolf and a happy grandmother and granddaughter. But what if Little Red Riding Hood's biggest fear was herself? What if she was the wolf?
