Dust City

Wow!!!  So for those of you that dont know, I have been in a fairy tale re-tell type of mind set for like the last 6 months and have read a lot of fairy tale type books (sleepless by cyn balog, the grimm legacy, fairest of all (the true story of the wicked queen),etc.).  Well this book just fits right in!  Dust City: "When you're dad is the wolf that killed little red riding hood, life is no fairytale" is what it says on the back cover.  This book was good!  It was a little slow to start, but once it starts going, I really enjoyed it!!!  Here's the synopsis:

Who's afraid of the big bad wolf?

His son, that's who.

Ever since his father's arrest for the murder of Little Red Riding Hood, teen wolf Henry Whelp has kept a low profile in a Home for Wayward Wolves . . . until a murder at the Home leads Henry to believe his father may have been framed.

Now, with the help of his kleptomaniac roommate, Jack, and a daring she-wolf named Fiona, Henry will have to venture deep into the heart of Dust City; a rundown, gritty metropolis where fairydust is craved by everyone and controlled by a dangerous mob of Water Nixies and their crime boss leader, Skinner.

Can Henry solve the mystery of his family's sinister past? Or, like his father before him, is he destined for life as a big bad wolf?

For those of you interested in other books that deal with fairy tale related themes, check these out!
