Book Review: Dust City by Robert Paul Weston

Dust City by Robert Paul Weston is a young adult novel that is both a fractured fairy tale and a work of noir fiction. The story takes place in the world of fairy tale creatures, including animals that have evolved and become anthropomorphized, long after the fairies have disappeared. The action in this story revolves around the big, bad wolf’s son Henry who is living in a juvenile detention center for a reasonably small offense. The big, bad wolf in in prison for killing a girl and her grandmother, however even that case might not be as cut and dry as it first appears. There is a creature pulling the strings, a conspiracy involving fairy dust and some unexpected twists. If you are looking for a unique take on characters from classic stories had what the bigger picture might be for them, then this book will deliver.
