Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce

Starred Review. Grade 8 Up—For Scarlett and Rosie March, the world is not what it seems. Werewolves, called Fenris, live among them in the form of good-looking men who prey on pretty young girls. When a Fenris attacked the March girls, it killed their grandmother and left them emotionally and, for Scarlett, physically scarred. Since then, they have taken action and revenge. With the help of a friend, Silas, the girls are on a mission—to destroy as many Fenris as they can. This goal becomes more complicated when they try to unravel the mystery behind the pack and prevent the next "Potential" from transforming fully into a soulless, evil monster. Pearce is on the mark with this modern-day retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. Told by the sisters in alternating chapters, this well-written, high-action adventure grabs readers and never lets go. Rosie and Scarlett are true heroines; smart, tough, and determined, but their special bond is put to test when Rosie and Silas's relationship becomes more than just friendship. A satisfying read with a fantastic cover.—

My Review
My mom has been begging me to read Sisters Red forever.
And well, I've had a really hard time finding a really good book to read ever since Bruiser. So I decided to read Sisters Red without telling my mother. Because honestly, I was too prideful to actually admit that
I was reading a book my mom told me to read. So I got half way, and finally had to tell her that I was reading it, and that I REALLY loved it.
The only reason I told her that I was reading it is because, I was running out of excuses of why my bedroom door was locked every time she tried to come in, I mean she thought it was kinda odd that I was "getting dressed" all the time. She absolutely hates it when my bedroom door is locked.
So, yes, Sisters Red was pretty amazing. I usually don't go for books about werewolves, but I really loved this book. I really liked how Scarlett and Rosie actually killed the werewolves (Fenris) and didn't fall in love with them.
I loved all the characters in this book. At first Scarlett annoyed me, because she was way too serious all the time, and wouldn't calm down. But about half way through, I started to respect her. She definitely grew on me!
My favorite character was definitely Silas! I loved how Jackson Pearce developed his character, I kinda wish some of the chapters where from his view point. But they switched off from sisters, Scarlett and Rosie.
Rosie actually reminded me of Katniss Everdeen (From Hunger Games, for those who don't know that, your crazy)
Yes, some of you might think I'm brain damaged or something, but I thought her character and way she thought things out was very Katniss-ish.

I can't really say anything that I hated out of this book. All I know is that I had about a quarter left of it, and my mom came into my room and told me to clean it, well, I seriously COULD NOT get up until I finished it. There was no way I was going to put that book down. My room never got clean because I've been thinking about Sisters Red too much, and because I really don't want to clean it. (:

*My mom and Andye's review of Sisters Red is seen right here...


  1. I've got this one in my TBR pile. So glad to read that you think it was good! I'm interested to see if I get the same Katniss vibe you did for Rosie. Thanks for the review!

  2. I read the book because of your review and I really enjoyed it. :)

    I have to say that I viewed it much differently though. For example, Scarlett got on your nerves, while Rosie was the on who annoyed me for most of the book. Scarlett was my favorite character.

    I really don't get the Katniss vibe you get from Rosie though, they are on completely different ends of the spectrum to me.

    Thanks for the review!
