Overview

Little Miss Red by Robin Palmer

The ideal L.A. fairy tale for fans of Once Upon a Time and L.A. Candy, from the author of Geek Charming.

Sophie Greene gets good grades, does the right thing, and has a boyfriend that her parents— and her younger brother—just love. (Too bad she doesn’t love him.) Sophie dreams of being more like Devon Deveraux, star of her favorite romance novels, but, in reality, Sophie isn’t even daring enough to change her nail polish. All of that changes when Sophie goes to Florida to visit her grandma Roz, and she finds herself seated next to a wolfishly goodlooking guy on the plane. The two hit it off, and before she knows it, Sophie’s living on the edge. But is the drama all it’s cracked up to be?

About the Author

Robin Palmer grew up in Massachusetts and New Jersey, and graduated from Boston University before she hit the road for Hollywood. Starting as an assistant in the television literary department of the William Morris Agency, she quickly moved up the ranks and spent the next decade as a literary agent, producer, and television network executive at Lifetime Television, where she developed over one hundred scripts and oversaw the production of over thirty of the cable network's original movies. In 2001, she remembered that she had originally intended to spend her life either as a writer or a toll booth collector (so she could indulge her penchant for spending her days alone reading), but as there are no toll roads in southern California, she decided to give the writing thing a try. Since then, she's written everything from screenplays to essays to a novel to a preschool guide. Although she's constantly threatening to move, she currently resides in New York City.

To Sophie Greene's dismay, her life is boring and practical - and she's sick of everyone reminding her about it. So, like most teens, Sophie wants to experience the life that she is not already living. The sixteen-year-old craves excitement and romance. She wants the glamorous and adventure-filled life of her favorite female book character, Devon Devoreaux. Oh, and she desperately needs to buy a red cowboy hat, in spite of everyone's opinions about it. After a twist in her Spring Break plans, Sophie's dreams of a spontaneous lifestyle come true. On her way to her grandma's place in Florida, Sophie meets Jack Andrews. This mysterious guy is a musician and knows how to make any female's heart beat like a drum roll (even Sophie's Grandma Roz!). He is so not like Sophie's predictable boyfriend, Michael Rosenberg. But is Sophie's new lifestyle and love interest really that much better? Do Sophie's judgments of others and her hopes for the future prevent her from being realistic? For readers who are already familiar with Palmer's previous works, LITTLE MISS RED will not fail to fulfill their expectations. As for newcomers, this book will immediately capture their attentions. The humorous and conversational writing style, along with Sophie's understandable struggles and the plot's tie to Little Red Riding Hood, makes the book perfect for readers of all backgrounds and interests.

This book was not only a fast read, but in the end you can walk away feeling satisfied that the ending was okay. I am not going to sit here and give away all the good parts, but the one thing I walked away with was this: Love can make a girl blind. Before you get all flustered on me let me make my point. In the beginning you see how Sophie is the all-around good girl. Never does anything wrong, always obeys the rules and has been dating a boy for 3 years(18.5 percent of their lives according to one line in the book)but she's not feeling the drama like her fave heroine Devon Deveraux. But when she gets stuck sitting next to a guy who is the spitting image of one of the male models on the covers of the Devon books, she thinks she has found her soul mate. But after a while, that luster wears off and she finds herself back in the same situation as before, a boy in her life that isnt matching up to her ideal. The story line is nice, but the characters all seem to lack something in the end. Sophie is a cute character but being naieve can only last so long. Dont expect this to blow your socks off, but its good for a nice afternoon at the beach.
