Sisters Red is an exciting novel that teens should read seeing how it shows the struggle of trying to be normal when people do things that are different then you and shows the love life of a teen. This story is open to all readers but mainly teenage girls would like to read it. Pearce took me on an adventure with her recreation of Little Red Ridding Hood, maybe she'll take you to.

Andy is worried and confused on how to tell his parents that he is gay. Evan is in love with Elizabeth, who is Conner's girlfriend. Tia is in love with Conner, Elizabeth's boyfriend. Jade wants to be Jeremy's boyfriend. Jeremy doesn’t want anything serious. I think the teenagers handle their problems well without any adult help.
Any teenager who has ever gone through relationship problems and friendship problems will definitely love to read this book. They can relate or just be entertained to and by the book. "Don't you think its a little weird that he want anxious to kiss me?" (146) a lot teenage girls go through that stage with boys, where they that is all they worry about, when in reality it is nothing to stress over. But then there are problems that not every teenager goes through like Andys or Conner's.
"Ahhh this is more like it Conner said while drinking the sour liquor" "He and his father both downed their drinks in under five minutes" (173) Conner running away from home because his family and friends (all the characters above) had an intervention for his alcohol addiction. And were he went didn't help much.
So many problems with this young teenagers seems to be over whelming. But that's what they go through everyday, trying to solve it. Do it ever get solved? Do All the problems get solved? The book had a good way in keeping me interested and wanting to know what happens next with the teenagers.

With the help of Leonard’s friends, Cameron Poter, and Carla Evans, had told Leonard’s personal and school life. But they told the officers that Leonard was fascinated by guns, was overdosing on prescription drugs, and made an enemies list. The analysis team discovered that all three friends were constantly getting bullied, and things at home were very rough.But for any other student at Maddison High, Leonard, Cameron, and Carla were “on the outs”,(149) as they said, and kept silent about their own abuse. But in the end, Leonard Gray wanted to “break a hole in the wall of silence”,(183) in the most violent way he knew how.
