Publisher's Summary

The secret of having an adventure is getting lost. Who ever visited an enchanted kingdom or fell into a fairy tale without wandering into the woods first? Well, Mary is lost. Mary is lost in the story of Little Red Riding Hood, and that is a cruel and murderous story. She's put on the red hood and met the wolf. When she gives in to her wolf's temptations, she will die. That's how the story goes, after all. Unfortunately for the story and unfortunately for the wolf, this Little Red Riding Hood is Mary Stuart, and she is the most stubborn and contrary 12-year-old the world has ever known. Forget the wolf's temptations, forget the advice of the talking rat trying to save her - Mary will kick her way through every myth and fairy tale ever told until she finds a way to get out of this alive. Her own way and no one else's.

A very dark fairy tale.

This story is very dark and gets darker as it progresses. The main character, Red Riding Hood, AKA: Mary Stuart, is only 12 years old. What she knows is far beyond what any 12 year old should know. She comes across a lot older. Even the voice used. It is a woman's voice. I'm sure it's the narrator's normal voice and the story is told on first person POV, but it doesn't work to "suspend disbelief " for anyone to see the character as a 12 year old. So if you enjoy dark fairy tale retelling S, this book is probably for you. If you don't like dark and sinister, which I'm not a fan, don't.
