The Red Fox Ran by December Knight is about an outsider longing to live a normal life. Bay is not a regular high school teenager and is all too aware of that. He knows that time with his normal friends is running out but finds it too difficult to draw away from them. His brother Blaze warns him to be alert and not become too close to the other kids, fearing their secret will come out. When the time on Bay's hourglass runs out, he finds himself in over his head. He wishes he had told his friends about his secret earlier and hadn't gotten them involved in this now-dangerous situation.
The Red Fox Ran is a unique story that uses simile and metaphor. This makes it very poetic and creates a dreamlike effect. The dialog is authentic as the teenagers converse with each other playfully, often teasing each other. The storyline development stands out, building from a dreamlike trance to an intriguing and thrilling set of events. Also, more of the protagonist's secrets are revealed with each passing chapter, to the point of one not wanting to take a break from reading. December Knight also uses the theme of God and Christianity to good effect, and some philosophical and religious ideas are given for the reader to ponder. The Red Fox Ran is a sublime work of fiction with strong themes, a captivating plot, and strong characters that are relatable to the point that I felt I was fighting their battles alongside them.
