High school senior, Sofia Black, has had a very hard life. Since her father’s death 7 years ago, she has had to look after her drug addicted, alcohlic mother. School isn’t any better for her either. The other kids constantly tease, and ridicule her. All she wants is to get out of her small hometown in Alabama.
When new student, Jason, shows up, Sofia’s world is turned upside down. She doesn’t understand why he wants to befriend her so badly… And, just when she thinks she can trust him, trouble appears.
Jason’s twin brother, Robbie, moves into town, and things go haywire. Sofia is now running for her life – and Jason is forced to share hidden secrets with her. She learns the truth about her father’s death, and finds out that she may not be as “human” as she once thought. She struggles to accept her fate, while fighting for her life.
This book is a pretty fast paced read. I read it one day I think. There is really a lot going on in the book; lots of action. I really enjoyed that because I have not read a book that involved action like this in a while. There are a few really good fight scenes too!
I felt awful for Sofia. The girl could not catch a break- seriously everything that could go wrong in her life did. Her dad was killed- the book actually starts with his death scene. And then her mom just falls apart. I could not stand Sofia’s mom! I just had no respect for her. I understand that people have hard times, we all do. But for her to completely fall apart and not take care of her daughter was not ok to me. My heart just went out to Sofia.
I also really liked that Sofia’s physical “transformation” was slow. She didn’t just wake up gorgeous over night. She was still kind of awkward and a little too skinny. It just made her so much more likable.
I’m not going to say too much about Jason and Robbie because that is part of the fun of the book. Figuring out who you can trust along with Sofia, and it isn’t always easy. This book was not predictable, which is awesome! I love when a book can surprise me. I have read a lot of books, so most of the time I can see the writing on the wall and I at least have some idea of what is going to happen, but multiple times throughout reading Redheads are Soulless I was surprised. I do wish there was a little bit more background information earlier on, but I it all comes together in the end. It added to the mystery of the book, actually. I am really excited to read the second book because now that I know the players a little bit better, I feel like the real fun is just getting started!

This books sounds super interesting, I’m wondering if the reference to “souless” in the title has a double meaning? Possibly referring to Sofia’s red hair as well as the inhuman part of her? Anyways I guess I’ll find out for sure when I read the book. Thanks to bookbriefs and Heather M. White for holding this giveaway! 🙂
