Scarlet by Marissa Meyers


This is the second lunar chronicles book and based on Little Red Riding Hood. Scarlet’s mother has gone missing and the police aren’t looking anymore. Scarlet is frustrated about this when young man appears in her life, a street fighter who seems oddly shy, called Wolf. Then Scarlet’s father appears, tearing up her grandmother’s house looking for something and claiming to have been tortured by a man with a tattoo just like Wolf’s. Scarlet is ready to shoot wolf when he offers to help her find her grandmother.
Meanwhile, Cinder has escaped into orbit on the ship of a fellow escaped prisoner Carswell Thorne. She is looking for the woman who protected her when she first came to Earth, hoping she can answer some questions. That woman was Scarlet’s Grandmother.
I like this series, it’s a great take on old fairy tales.
