Holy heck does that girl on the cover look fierce which is perfect since that is exactly how that description depicts her as. I think this looks a thrilling read that will keep me guessing until the last page. Definitely looking forward to it!
Red by Alison Cherry
Felicity St. John has it all—loyal best friends, a hot guy, and artistic talent. And she’s right on track to win the Miss Scarlet pageant. Her perfect life is possible because of just one thing: her long, wavy, coppery red hair.
Having red hair is all that matters in Scarletville. Redheads hold all the power—and everybody knows it. That’s why Felicity is scared down to her roots when she receives an anonymous note:
I know your secret.
Because Felicity is a big fake. Her hair color comes straight out of a bottle. And if anyone discovered the truth, she’d be a social outcast faster than she could say "strawberry blond." Her mother would disown her, her friends would shun her, and her boyfriend would dump her. And forget about winning that pageant crown and the prize money that comes with it—money that would allow her to fulfill her dream of going to art school.
Felicity isn’t about to let someone blackmail her life away. But just how far is she willing to go to protect her red cred?Red is out October 8th 2013 by Delacorte Press.
I never really thought about a hair color giving you popularity but I guess it is no different than pretty hair and pretty teeth making you accepted. Love the unique angle on this one!
