Waiting on Wednesday (#26): Red by Alison Cherry

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, that spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" is...

Title: Red
Author: Alison Cherry
Publication Date: October 8th 2013
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Felicity St. John has it all—loyal best friends, a hot guy, and artistic talent. And she’s right on track to win the Miss Scarlet pageant. Her perfect life is possible because of just one thing: her long, wavy, coppery red hair.

Having red hair is all that matters in Scarletville. Redheads hold all the power—and everybody knows it. That’s why Felicity is scared down to her roots when she receives an anonymous note:

I know your secret.

Because Felicity is a big fake. Her hair color comes straight out of a bottle. And if anyone discovered the truth, she’d be a social outcast faster than she could say "strawberry blond." Her mother would disown her, her friends would shun her, and her boyfriend would dump her. And forget about winning that pageant crown and the prize money that comes with it—money that would allow her to fulfill her dream of going to art school.

Felicity isn’t about to let someone blackmail her life away. But just how far is she willing to go to protect her red cred?
The idea of hair color as a form of social status? Weird. But very intriguing. I'm curious as how the author of this book will build this world of red heads! Hopefully this will be a very entertaining and great read.


  1. That is a little weird! Actually.. it's a lot weird. :P But hey, I'm all for original premises! I quite like the cover for this too, so I'm sure I wouldn't pass up the chance to read it. :) Great and interesting pick, Eunice!

  2. Lol, a book about status based on hair colour lol. Great pick. Thanks for sharing

  3. Yes, Red really intrigued me as well. I am going to read it when it comes out. Awesome pick.

  4. "The idea of hair color as a form of social status? Weird. But very intriguing."

    Agreed. But that's what makes me want to read this one. It sounds strange and quirky and I kind of have to know what happens:)

  5. Oh yes I've had my eye on this book for sometime too Eunice! It sounds so different, but so fantastic. It's just a shame that we have to wait so long for the release! *cries*

  6. The idea of hair colour determing status is very weird, and I don't know if it's even somewhat far-reaching? But still, it is different, so I'm interested to see how the author pulls it off. Lovely pick, E! :)

  7. I nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award!

  8. Sounds like an interesting premise with the possiblity of some social commentary. I'll definitely be looking out for this one!

    Check out my WoW!

  9. This sounds so weird... and awesome! I've never heard of a book or movie where hair color is the form of social status, which is definitely an original concept, but lots can go wrong with it. I'll keep my eye out for reviews of this before I get it. Great pick, Eunice!

  10. This does sound very different, Eunice. Wonderful pick. :)

  11. the synopsis sounds great! even though it is a bit absurd, but still a plot with a ton of potential!!

    great pick,

  12. SHE DYES HER HAIR? Scandalous. ;)

    This one sure has been making the rounds--it seems like one of those books that could be really fun, or really...not, hah. I think I'll wait for some reviews to roll in.
