Bisou has lived with her grandmother since the fateful day her mother was killed. She’s happy with her quiet life, until one night with her boyfriend James, and she finds herself running through the woods, over roots and between trees, claws and teeth tearing at her back. As Bisou stumbles home with the wolf’s blood on her hands, more questions arise. Then more come in the following days, about her past, her grandmother, and what comes with the full moon.
I found myself hooked within the first couple of pages. Red Hood is told through second person as if you are Bisou, it’s weird at first, but once I got used to it, it really drew me into the story. Each character is different yet at the same time simple and relatable to a degree. I am disappointed that at several points Bisou and James have intimate moments with too much detail. There is some heavy cussing sporadically, and some adult themes are brought up. The adult themes do add to the meaning and theme of the story, though some of them could have been left out. I would not recommend this for anyone under sixteen, and even then you have to be careful.
