Red Hood - Elana K. Arnold 3.00   1

Michael L. Printz Award honoree and National Book Award finalist Elana K. Arnold returns with a darkly violent, furiously feminist tale of terror about generational trauma, female friendship, and coming into one’s own power.

You are alone in the woods, seen only by the unblinking yellow moon. Your hands are empty. You are nearly naked.

And the wolf is angry.

Since her grandmother became her caretaker when she was four years old, Bisou Martel has lived a quiet life in a little house in Seattle. She’s kept mostly to herself. She’s been good.

But then comes the night of homecoming, when she finds herself running for her life over roots and between trees, a fury of claws and teeth behind her.

A wolf attacks. Bisou fights back. A new moon rises. And with it, questions.

About the blood in Bisou’s past and on her hands as she stumbles home.

About broken boys and vicious wolves.

About girls lost in the woods — frightened, but not alone.

Elana K. Arnold, National Book Award finalist and author of the Printz Honor book Damsel, returns with a dark, engrossing, blood-drenched tale of the familiar threats to female power — and one girl’s journey to regain it.
