Palmer’s latest fairy tale–based romance focuses on 17-year-old Sophie Greene, a nice Jewish girl from Studio City, California. A voracious reader of romance novels who seeks parallels in her own life, Sophie is bored with her steady but unexciting boyfriend of three years and ready for a new adventure. She gets sent to grandmother’s house (in Florida), bearing lox and whitefish. While on the plane, she meets charming 19-year-old Jack, who’s all sweet talk and clearly bad news. Little Red Riding Hood, anyone? Palmer offers some clever twists and characterizations in what turns out to be a morality tale (stick with the steady known quantity rather than the unreliable charmer). This quick, predictable read may not challenge much, but it’s frequently entertaining, and readers will enjoy watching Sophie break free of some of her habits and learn to appreciate not only her long-suffering boyfriend but her grandmother as well. Though it’s not as deep as the books of Gail Carson Levine, Shannon Hale, or Adèle Geras, there’s still plenty of room for this frothy addition to the modern fairy-tale genre. Grades 7-11. --Debbie Carton
"Teenage girls looking for a light, enjoyable romance will not be disappointed with Palmer's latest entry." --VOYA

Sophie's a memorable, fun and funny protagonist who wants to be swept away by passion, but doesn't quite know which guy is the one for her. Following her as she finds out is such an enjoyable (sometimes windblow and on a motorcycle) ride. Palmer lovingly skewers romance novels with Sophie's devotion to heroine Devon Deveraux, and Sophie's adorably mixed-up suspicions and views on love, punctuated often by her buzzing iPhone, are both laugh out loud hilarious and adorably sweet.
My Thoughts: I was really looking forward to this one from the moment I heard about it last year! I read another one of Robin's and liked it a whole lot. This one was also a good one. We meet Sophie who has been dating Josh for 3 years. She was supposed to go with him down to Florida but he gets sick so she goes down to visit her grandmother alone. Lately, she has felt like they don't have a connection anymore, the romance has started to run sour. Right before she leaves, Josh tells her he thinks they should take a "break." On the plane she meets Jack. Can he be her soulmate? He does end up sitting next to her! Well, she spends the plane ride talking to him and getting to know him. Her grandmother meets him at the airport and invites him home with them since he has nowhere to stay. Sophie gets to know him over the next few weeks and she fees like they have a connection. He is sort of a bad boy so she feels drawn to him. From the get go, I did not like the guy. I thought he was a user. He kept on insisting Sophie pay for everything and that really bothered me. I didn't find him to be charming or sexy like Sophie did. I wanted her to stay with Josh and work on their relationship. A bunch of money comes up missing and Sophie thinks Jack took it. Josh than comes to Florida to see Sophie. What happens next? Read the book to find out. Do Sophie and Jack get together? Do Josh and Sophie stay together? Who took the money? What happens?
Overall: I enjoyed reading this book but I just did not like Jack from the get go. I liked Sophie but her choices are all over the place and she falls in lust too easily. Oh, and the references to Nicholas Sparks were definitely awesome! Heart his books!
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.
