The Twistedly True Tale of Ruby Hood by Stephanie Greenhalgh


Summary: In the small town of Woodsville, self-assured Ruby Hood becomes tangled in more than traditional teenage angst. With the Homecoming Dance looming, everything at Woodsville High appears normal, but things are not as they seem. Ruby meets a cute boy with a lopsided grin, Dylan Hunter. She flirts shamelessly with the football star, Kent Wolf, and finds herself in a barrage of harsh verbal altercations with his stunning yet wicked sister, Kayla Wolf. Thankfully, she finds solace in her friend, Lilly Fair. Through a series of odd and painful events, Ruby discovers her true calling and the responsibilities that come with her new power and position. Despite her heartache and sorrow, will Ruby find the inner strength not only to protect herself, but also to keep the Wood safe at all cost?

My review:   I just love re-tellings, in fact they are a very fun type of book to read.  I have read all the classics so when I get a chance to read a re-telling  I can’t help but enjoy them.  I just always find them fun.

Which is how I would define this book.  Fun.  I read it quickly it is not very long, you can finish the book in one sitting if you like, it is roughly 200 pages of pure fun.

Ruby Hood was likable & a serious flirt.  She flirts with Kent Wolf (get it?) who is a football star and clearly bad for her, but oh so fun.   Sure there is drama and sorrow in this book, but at the same time Little Red Riding Hood had those elements so they have to be in the re-telling.  Overall this was a really fun read that had some romantic and dramatic elements, that was all wrapped up in one short little package.
