This week in my mailbox...
Red Riding Hood by Sarah Blakley-Cartwright, Catherine Hardwicke
The body of a young girl is discovered in a field of wheat. Her flesh mutilated by telltale claw marks. The Wolf has broken the peace.
When Valerie learns that her sister has been killed by the legendary creature, she finds herself at the center of a dark mystery, one that has plagued her village for generations. It is revealed that the werewolf lives among them, and everyone in the village immediately becomes a suspect. Could her secret love Peter be behind the attacks on her town? Is it her betrothed, Henry? Or someone even closer to her?
As the men in the village hunt for the beast, Valerie turns to her grandmother for help. She gives Valerie a handmade red riding cloak, and guides her through the web of lies and deception that has held her town together for so long. Will Valerie discover the werewolf's identity before the town is ripped apart?
This is a dangerous new vision of a classic fairy tale, the happy ending could be hard to find.
When I saw this at the bookstore I had to pick it up because I am just dying to see this movie when it comes out in March.
If you haven't heard about it, here are some fantastic pics:
How fabulous does this movie look? I for one can't wait to see it.
Well that's it for this week. I know, I know it was slim pickings this week for my mailbox, but don't worry, there are some up and coming releases that will more than make up for it. So tell me...what's in your mailbox?
