Judge a Book by the Cover: Dust City by Robert Paul Weston

It's ok. We all do it. We all pick up a book and without reading a single word we judge it. We decide almost immediately whether or not it's worth our time. Recently I asked the Youth Advisory Council to take a look at several books and judge them by their covers. Here's what they thought of Dust City.

Check out what Y.A.C. members had to say...

Do you want to read this book? No

1. Werewolf
2. Twilight-y
3. Scary

Use three words to describe what you think this book is about:
1. Freaky
2. Wolves

Write a sentence describing the cover: "It looks interesting."

So, what's this book REALLY about??

Henry Whelp's father murdered Little Red Riding Hood, meaning that Henry is the son of the Big Bad Wolf.  And now Henry needs solve the mystery of his family's sinister past.  But he might just be destined to become the Big Bad Wolf himself.  Basically, this book is a fractured fairy tale with an urban edge.  Not quite what the Y.A.C. members were expecting.
