Little Red #OnceUpOnANow
Cassie Lanchester, or Little Red as she liked to go by, lived in one of those small towns where everyone knew everyone. She could walk down main-street and name off every person, including their last name, their occupation, and-probable-most of their family (crazy uncles included)
Yeah, it was one of THOSE towns.
Nothing interesting usually happened, well, not until 4 unexpected deaths randomly pop up, each thought to be caused by over-dose of medication, but even Red knows that's a whole load of crap -yeah, this probably broke their 'normal-American-dream-town' streak didn't it?
Red is positive these deaths had something to do with the dog-like-wolf she thinks is stalking her, and the shady man who goes by "Big Bad" who recently showed up in town.
And that's when normality jumped out of the window with a suitcase, yelling "I'll send ya a pose-card!"
Suddenly, Red finds herself in a twisted game of hide and seek, with nothing but her trusty bookbag, unfailing humorous wit, and the boy she's been crushing on for years. With everything suddenly hanging by a thread, Red is going to have trust herself, and those closest to her.
But can anyone else really be trusted?
