Just like the previous Lunar Chronicles book, "Scarlet" is based on a fairy tale, more specifically, Little Red Riding Hood. I loved the mix of the old classics and the futuristic sci-fi in this wonderfully written novel. The main character, named Scarlet, has lived with her grandmother on their farm for as long as she can remember, but unbeknownst to her, everything is about to change. One night her grandma disappears, leaving only her ID chip behind. Scarlet knows that she has been kidnapped, but the police are convinced her grandma just ran away of her own accord, so Scarlet decides to find her grandma herself. She meets a very suspicious character named Wolf who earns his living participating in street fights. They run off together because Wolf claims to have information on her grandma's whereabouts, and Scarlet is desperate. Right when Scarlet thinks she has finally figured out Wolf's character, he turns out to be not at all what he seems. But still Scarlet still feels drawn towards him, even after he betrayed her, and lied to her. Wolf wants to change so he can be with Scarlet, but someone else is controlling him, turning him into an animal, with thoughts only to hunt and kill. Through many highs and lows, and ups and downs, many different stories intertwine when the characters find out why they are connected, and why they have been brought together. This book is a great read for teens who love pretty much any genre.
