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.

Weird and disturbing book that I cannot unread
I very rarely write negative reviews, but I can’t unread this book so maybe I can help you decide if this book is right for you. Firstly, the main character is a 12-year-old girl wearing a “tarty” costume who strings together cursewords like a foul-mouthed adult. She has a wolf who wants to ravish her, and yet is called “little girl” throughout the book. I don’t like the sexual connotations relating to a child. Seems creepy and disturbing. Secondly, Mary has adventure after adventure…after adventure. They all are pretty random and not connected. I felt like the story didn’t flow well. And lastly, some parts were disturbing to the point that I am left feeling unsettled. Upon finishing it, I just feel depressed.
