Book review of "The Red Fletch" by Margaret McNellis

Today I'm reviewing The Red Fletch by Margaret McNellis, self-published by Silver Arrow Books in 2021.

For this review, I have two guests with me: my seven years old daughter, and her nine years old sister, who have both read the book with me. They share their opinion of the book in this video.

Overview of points discussed in this review:

Strengths of the book

  • Clear character desire and obstacles

  • Wonderful immersion into the world

  • Great characterization

  • Strong cause-and-effect trajectory

  • Strong emotional scenes

  • Empowering heroine who stays true to herself

Weaknesses of the book

  • Minor clarity and proof-reading misses

In all, this book was a fantastic read with a heroine who went through her journey with all the flaws, guilt, and bad choices that come with strong misbeliefs, but she emerges more powerful at the end of The Red Fletch. It was a joy to see Alys Fletcher mature and grow and stand up for herself!
