Summary from Goodreads:
In the small town of Woodsville, self-assured Ruby Hood becomes tangled in more than traditional teenage angst. With the Homecoming Dance looming, everything at Woodsville High appears normal, but things are not as they seem. Ruby meets a cute boy with a lopsided grin, Dylan Hunter. She flirts shamelessly with the football star, Kent Wolf, and finds herself in a barrage of harsh verbal altercations with his stunning yet wicked sister, Kayla Wolf. Thankfully, she finds solace in her friend, Lilly Fair. Through a series of odd and painful events, Ruby discovers her true calling and the responsibilities that come with her new power and position. Despite her heartache and sorrow, will Ruby find the inner strength not only to protect herself, but also to keep the Wood safe at all cost?
“A gift … for me?” Ruby asked, setting her cup down and clapping her hands with enthusiasm.
“Yes, of course, it’s for you,” Grams said, laughing at her granddaughter’s buoyant gesture. Then, she nodded at a large, white box tied with a beautiful red ribbon sitting on the chair. Ruby hurried over to the box, pulled the bow and removed the top of the box.
“Ooooohhhhh, Grams! It’s the most gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen!” Ruby exclaimed as she rubbed the soft velvety fabric against her cheek and cooed. She held it up and examined it more thoroughly. When she couldn’t stand it any longer, she slipped her arms through the large, billowing sleeves. “Oh, my goodness! It’s so luxurious,” she murmured as she pulled the hooded cloak around her. Golden flecks were embedded in the delicate floral pattern of the crimson garment. It was lined with honey-colored satin that felt soft against her skin. When she fastened the three golden buttons down the front, it wrapped perfectly around her body, accentuating her slim waist. She twirled and giggled in true teenage girl fashion and then hugged Grams. “Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It’s perfect and exactly what I needed for the dance tonight!” Ruby said, then turned and ran up the stairs to check out the complete ensemble in her full length mirror. She jumped with glee when she saw herself and ran back down the stairs to hug her grandmother again.
