Atlanta author Jackson Pearce is the highly praised author of several books for young readers including ”As You Wish” and her latest, ”Sisters Red.” She joins us for the first time to discuss ”Sisters Red,” written for 8th graders and up, a fable-inspired thriller featuring some dangerous werewolves and a mystery to be solved. School Library Journal gives it a starred review and calls it ”an adventure that grabs the reader and never lets go.” The novel’s heroines are a pair of sisters who must deal with werewolves called Ferris, who live among them in the form of good-looking young men who prey on pretty young girls. It’s a modern-day re-telling of Little Red Riding Hood that will leave you breathless! This would be a great program for teenage readers, by the way.
