Red - Alison Cherry

Well, the ending was a little... abrupt. Not my favorite way to leave this story, that's for sure. I thought Felicity seemed a little too unchanged until the very, very end, at the pageant, which is less character development than I would have liked. It seemed a little scattered throughout the novel, instead of a smooth progression, so that bothered me a little bit.

 

Overall, though, I'm pretty pleased. It's exactly what's advertised, and I did enjoy the story for what it was. Of course, it was immature and slightly silly sometimes, and I had to stretch a little to understand some of the characters' ideas, but I did like this story, It's one to at least give a chance, and not write off because it's a little unbelievable. It was a fun ride. Four stars!
