My next review will be of Briar Rose by Jane Yolen, a version of Sleeping Beauty.

Ever since she was a child, Rebecca has been enchanted by her grandmother Gemma’s stories about Briar Rose. But a promise Rebecca makes to her dying grandmother will lead her on a remarkable journey to uncover the truth of Gemma’s astonishing claim: I am Briar Rose. A journey that will lead her to unspeakable brutality and horror. But also to redemption and hope.

Trigger Warning: This post will discuss violence against women, rape culture, and victim blaming.

Fairy Tale: Little Red Riding Hood

Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce is an intriguing young adult novel about Scarlett and Rosie March, two sisters who after a brutal attack from a Fenris, a human-turned-wolf-like-monster, dedicate their lives to hunting and killing vicious beasts. The highlights:

  • It’s kind of like Little Red Riding Hood meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
  • It has not only one, but two badass ladies as protagonists, one of whom has a handicap.
  • It’s got some pretty awesome cover art.
  • It’s also the center of some controversy about women, rape culture, and the nature of feminism

Intrigued? Then let’s talk a bit about Sisters Red.
