Sarah Blakley-Cartwright is a recent cum laude graduate of Barnard College. She is the recipient of the 2008-2009 Mary Gordon Fiction Scholarship Award and the 2009-2010 Lenore Marshall Barnard Prize for Prose. She splits her time between New York and Los Angeles.

Raised in Mansfield, Ohio, David Leslie Johnson began writing plays in the second grade and wrote his first screenplay at age nineteen. He graduated from the Ohio State University in Columbus with a bachelor of fine arts degree in photography and cinema. After working as a production assistant on the Academy Award-nominated film The Shawshank Redemption, Johnson spent five years as an assistant to the film's director and writer, Frank Darabont, learning the trade of screenwriting from one of the industry's most respected talents.

Johnson's most recent project was writing an original screenplay for the film Red Riding Hood, directed by Catherine Hardwicke. He currently has several projects in development. Johnson lives in Burbank, California, with his wife, screenwriter Kimberly Lofstrom Johnson, and their son, Samuel.

So why buy a full priced book with no ending?
Beth Windham
Also, I don't really like stories where you can guess the ending right away or even towards the end, and this book wasn't like that at all.
MiniTigerBookworm
You have to go to a website (listed on a page at the end of the book) in order to read the last chapter.

This story is genuinely wonderful and well written, HOWEVER, I highly recommend to everyone out there that you save your money and not purchase this edition of the book. The story is incomplete and its pretty much just a rip off. In this edition the ending is not included, even though there is no waning of that on the front. You have to go on the website and read the end AFTER the movie is released because that`s when the ending will be up. The average price of this book anywhere, is around $10. So you pay ten bucks for an incomplete product? Can you say rip-off? You wouldn't buy a book in the used bookstore with the end ripped out, would you? So why buy a full priced book with no ending? This is just a jacked up ploy to get people to buy movie tickets. Yeah sure, if you're thinking of buying this book you could look around on the internet and find out that there was no ending included in this edition, but the average person just going through the bookstore won't know that. There is no warning that the book is incomplete on the front, thus its set up to take advantage of people and suck them in, to where they'll be dying for the ending so bad that they will be most likely to just go to the movies when it comes out. I personally think this is soooooooooo wrong! Not only is this set up where people pay for incomplete merchandise, it also makes it to where if you really want a complete edition of this book to put on your shelf, and already bought this edition, you'll have to buy it twice. If the author/publishing company wanted to do it that way, they should have at least have been honest and have a blurb on the front of the book warning people about this, instead this is set up to be misleading and take advantage of someone who really wants to know the end.Read more ›

I was pleased to see this book arrive, and started reading it at the first opportunity. While it isn't one of the best, most well-written books I've ever read, the premise is interesting, and I liked that it was likely to be very close to the upcoming movie, having been based on the screenplay.

Imagine my surprise when I turn to page 330 and instead of reading the final chapter, all it says is- "Is this truly the end of Valerie's story? Visit Redridinghoodbook.com to find out." Feeling irritated, I follow the directions, only to find that nothing will even be put up for another FORTY DAYS!

What the heck (and a lot of other bad words I can't put here)! So, I paid $10 for a book that has no ending? Everytime I want to read it in the future (when they finally deign to post the final chapter apparently), I'll have to read 329 pages and then go online to finish it?

This is really infuriating. I would have at least appreciated SOMETHING on the cover or at the beginning stating that the ending would be online, rather than buying a book presuming that, gee, it will have the ending. After all, every other book I purchase always seems to come with one.

Don't waste your money buying this. Just see the movie when it comes out. Then at least you hopefully will get an ending, although at this point, I'm not counting on it. We'll probably have to go to youtube after we get home from the theater to see the ending.

I buy a book to read a complete story. NOT a partial one. This kind of blatant marketing ploy is disgusting. I gave this book one star because I couldn't give it none. While the idea is intriguing, it wasn't written well enough to forgive the jarring reference on the last page instructing the reader to visit the website for an ending that is not even there! I believe I will return the book to the store I bought it at. Not much point in seeing a movie directed by the woman who so awkwardly botched-up Twilight either.

I bought this book a few days ago, I had always love retellings of old fairytales. I loved the story, but as I finished the book and turned the page I found this note:

Is this truly
the end of
Valerie's story?

Visit
[...]
to find out.

??? - What!!!

[Closes book and goes to website] - It's not there!!!

This has been the only time in my life that I've shouted a string of explicatives at a book. I feel cheated and a host of other negative emotions that make my blood boil. I don't know whos bright idea this was, but whoever it was should be shot for their stupidity. My only hope is that the publishers will realize their wrong doing and re-release a completed version FREE for everyone who bought this before completion. And as for the movie...it makes blood shoot from my eyes.

Format: Paperback
This book had promise. It is a quick read, but engaging, a seemingly adequate read for those preparing to see the movie and make comparisons. However, I have NEVER read a book that becomes, all too shockingly, a commercial gimmick. There is no end to the book. It leads you up to the climax, and then stops, with a cheaply printed page declaring, "Is this truly the end of Valerie's story?" with the website [...] offered. So, somewhat miffed, you go to the website, only to find that the final chapter will be revealed online when the movie comes out. Now, I am a patient and loving person, but WHAT? I payed money for half a book, and a mediocre one at that? I fell victim to a cheap trick of merchandising? Is this legal? Perhaps they will release a complete edition of the book after the movie. I would wait to purchase the book for an edition like that.
