In case you missed it, Meghan Ory is returning to Once Upon A Time in her role as Ruby/Red Riding Hood in season 5, news which made Oncer social media platforms explode with excitement. To coincide with this news comes the release of Wendy Toliver’s novel Once Upon A Time: Red’s Untold Tale, a new chapter about Storybrooke’s favorite werewolf. To celebrate, Once Upon A Fan has teamed up with Hyperion Teens and their #FairyTale2pt0 campaign to host a special giveaway for the winner of our "Dark Swan in Camelot" Cover-Art Contest!
Here is the description of Once Upon A Time: Red’s Untold Tale:
Red is 16 and lives with Granny in a cottage in the village, where boarding up the house and hiding during Wolfstime is a means of survival. Red help's Granny with Granny's baked good business, catering as well as door-to-door sales. Red has a constant internal battle between her wild side and her strict, overprotective upbringing, and the issue of "control" as she discovers she has a hot temper when the "mean girls" push her too far. ("When we learn to control it, we needn't fear it," Rumpelstiltskin says in the series.) She has flashbacks to her 13th year when she received her cloak and the nickname "Red." Plagued by nightmares she doesn't understand and a temper she can't control, Red struggles to save Granny's troubled business and to nurture her budding romance with Peter, even as the betrayal of her classmates awakens the wolf within.
