Sophie Greene gets good grades, does the right thing, and has a boyfriend that her parents— and her younger brother—just love. (Too bad she doesn’t love him.) Sophie dreams of being more like Devon Deveraux, star of her favorite romance novels, but, in reality, Sophie isn’t even daring enough to change her nail polish. All of that changes when Sophie goes to Florida to visit her grandma Roz, and she finds herself seated next to a wolfishly goodlooking guy on the plane. The two hit it off, and before she knows it, Sophie’s living on the edge. But is the drama all it’s cracked up to be?
Little Miss Red was an absolutely adorable read. It had a cute story, was well-written, and some pretty great characters.
I loved Sophie. I connected with her completely. She was such a romantic, dreaming about love all the time. Plus she stays on the safe side, never really stepping to the wild side. She reminded me a lot of myself, and different decisions she makes I found myself realizing they were the same as I would’ve made in the same situation. Sophie’s addiction to her iPhone cracked me up. Sophie’s grandma kept me laughing. Everything she did was just downright funny!
The plot was light, and didn’t require you to think real deep. It was a nice story that you could get completely involved in while not having to think a lot about everything that went on. Little Miss Red was filled with so many laugh-out-loud moments!
I would definately recommend this retelling of an ancient fairy tale in modern times. It would be a perfect spring break read!
