Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (6 ):

Teens will love the supernatural mystery, vivid, modern-day Seoul setting, and the sweet romance in Kat Cho's dramatic first novel. She provides a great introduction to Korean culture and seamlessly weaves the legend of the gumiho, or nine-tailed fox, into the story, which reveals important details about Miyoung's family drama. It's clear that Miyoung and Jihoon have undeniable chemistry, and readers will appreciate how their relationship grows as they deal with their abandonment and trust issues.

Although there are times when Wicked Fox moves slowly, a few unexpected twists and shocking betrayals transform this suspenseful tale into an unputdownable page-turner as the characters figure out how much they're willing to sacrifice for the ones they love.
