Made the Grade: Low Red Moon by Ivy Devlin

Format: Paperback | Pages: 196 | Release Date: September 2010 | Publisher: Bloomsbury Children's Books

"Low Red Moon" by Ivy Devlin ( I read this as a part of Smitten With Books ARC Tours)

My Book Summary : Avery has spent most of her life living in the woods. Her parents have a piece of land with a house that was built one room at a time, everything is just so quaint and peaceful that she never had any regrets about the way she grew up. But now her life has suddenly changed because of her parent’s murder. She was there during the murder but all she can remember was seeing silver and blood. Lots and lots of blood.

She moves into her grandmother's house, a woman who she doesn't know that well anymore, and tries to understand what had happened in her life and to her parents. Not long after her parents died a new boy, named Ben, starts at her high school. He is gorgeous, but he would never be interested in her. Then on different occasions, she watches his eyes changing from brown to silver, and she doesn't know how to explain it. And even though they might not realize it from the first time he sets his eyes on her a connection between them occurs.

With that connection, they get closer, and when they do, she finds out what he really is. Will she be scared of him now, and keep away from him? Especially when more murders occur and he might be connected ...

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! This is an unusual take on the "Little Red Riding Hood" story we all grew up with, where the bad guy definitely isn't who you think. Creative, dark, and romantic are some of the words I'd use to describe this book. In truth, I didn't like the book during the first few chapters because of how dark it was and I'm not one to like all that goriness ... but that's just me. So ... if you like a good mystery novel then I'd recommend this book for you!

Book Teaser(s) :
Teaser 1
"I heard a wolf, and I---"
"You heard a wolf? How could you hear that? You live in town."
"I'm used to hearing them, so I guess I know what to listen for," I said. "I live---lived---near your great-uncle, remember? The woods are deeper there, without so much---" I gestured toward town, toward Renee's house off in the distance.
"Right," Ben said, standing up. "I need to go."
"Oh, okay," I said, and sank back against the tree, ready to watch him go.
But he didn't leave. He just stood there. ~ within Chapter 8
