Sisters Red

Sisters Red - Jackson Pearce Sisters Red is a unique take on the Little Red Riding Hood story. I gave it 3 stars because while I liked it, I didn't love it. I liked how the story was told by alternating between the sisters. It really allowed the reader to get to know both of their personalities better. I thought Scarlet was annoying and overly dramatic. I understood her need for revenge, but she seriously needed to lighten up a little. I can't imagine anyone that driven would survive for too long as a hunter. Even Buffy had fun once in a while! I liked Rosie and was hoping she would realize that she had paid her debt to Scarlett a thousand times over. I wanted her to find a life other than hunting.

The twist was very predictable and I figured it out early on in the book. I think most will as well. I had a little issue with the age difference between Rosie and Silas. I thought 16 was too young for a 21YO and had a hard time getting past that. I also think it is a bit violent for under 16, so parents might want to keep that in mind when choosing this for YA readers.
