The first time I read this book was about 25 years ago when I checked it out from my school library. Obviously, if it stuck in my mind all this time, the book is a good read, and I'm happy to report I enjoyed it nearly as much the second time as I did all those years ago.

Dread Locks is the first entry in the Dark Fusion series from master storyteller Neal Shusterman. He cleverly weaves together familiar parts of fairy tales and Greek mythology to tell the story of fourteen-year-old Parker Bear, rich and utterly bored with life-until a new girl arrives in town. Tara's eyes are always hidden behind designer sunglasses, and her hair, blond with glimmering spirals, seems almost alive. Parker watches, fascinated, as one by one Tara chooses high school students to befriend; he even helps her by making the necessary introductions.

If this were by any author than Neal Shusterman, I might have given it a higher rating. It isn't that Dread Locks is a bad book: it's an imaginative re-telling of a jumble of fairy-tales, myths and legends and as always Mr Shusterman sucks the reader into his world with ease.
The problem? This is an amazing writer who has written amazing works (the Everlost series, Downsiders, Unwind) and I have come to expect that quality from him. So when I read something a little less-than, I'm more disappointed than I would have been if he had been just your run-of-the-mill YA story teller. Had I read this before his other works, I'd probably have given it 3-4 stars; as it is, I want to give it a 2 1/2 which isn't an option.
If you find this book, go ahead and read it. It's easy and fun. Then go get one of Shusterman's REAL books and see what he can really do.
These books all take an interesting view of a fairy tale, folklore, or myth. I love things like that - updated or re-imagined stories are just inherently fun for me, especially when I enjoyed the original story. This story is compelling, and you come to feel for the characters, especially (for me at least) Terra. I loved it, and I've read it several times through. I will most definitely read it again as well. As with so many of this author's works, it isn't very long. A night of reading will get you a long way, so it's recommended for those looking for a shorter story or who have trouble making themselves read longer books.
I love Neal Shusterman.....but for me this was a little too young..more for teens
The book is perfect
I was never one who believed I would really enjoy Dark Fusion books. I purchased this book at a book fair for less than $5. It was the best deal and a very interesting book. I read the book with my 6th grade students, they LOVED it! It kept them on the edge of their seats and waiting for more each day. I liked it so much, I ordered a classroom set. I can't wait for my students this year to experience this book. I recently ordered two more of the Dark Fusion series and can't wait to read them.
Neal Shusterman is easily becoming one of my all time favorite authors! Everything he writes holds me enthralled thru the whole story! I found Dread Locks at 2nd & Charles and I got so excited! I was waiting for the next book in another series that Shusterman wrote to get here from Amazon, and this one is short so I read it, and loved it! Shusterman has a way of being philosophical without being pompous or hard to understand. Dread Locks is a mix of fairy tale and myth. Yes, there is a subtle difference between the two and Shusterman weaves them together flawlessly. I honestly have no critique to give with this book. It’s an imaginative story that’s meant to be experienced thru your imagination so don’t expect to take it all literally. There are little lessons to learn throughout; the characters are likeable, they could have easily moved into annoying, but they never did. And my very favorite part of this story is the ending! Holy cow!!! But I can’t tell you, you just gotta read it for yourself!!!! ???? I’d recommend this to any teen, I think this is a good book to get them into reading. I’d also recommend it to anyone look for a short but interesting read.
Dread Locks (Dark Fusion #1) by Neal Shusterman is an exciting fantasy story for teens about grade 7-10 I would guess. (Although I enjoyed it too.) I bought it at a Library sale for my grand kids and thought I would read and review it first. This book combines old myths with today to make a fun fantasy. A totally spoiled, bored, rich kid gets an interesting and hot new neighbor that sets the school a buzz with excitement and strange happenings. Very good story plot, great characters, and fun twists and surprises. Kids today aren't up on myths of old so this might just teach them a thing or two along the way, lol. Enjoyed it also because I love the old myth stories. I think my grand kids will enjoy this also. Can't wait to give them their book.
In Neal Shusterman's new DARK FUSION Series, the author takes myths, legends, and fairy tales, mixes them up with modern-day tales of teen angst and horror, and comes up with an entertaining read. In DREAD LOCKS, we get a whole stew pot full of retold stories--GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE BEARS, MEDUSA, KING MIDAS. They're all there, and the finished product is a quick, fun, and sometimes depressing read.

Parker Baer is the type of fifteen-year old I both love and hate. He's always been given everything he's ever wanted, due to the fact that his parents are wealthy. He has an obnoxious older brother, Garrett, and an irritable little sister, Katrina. For his birthday, his brother bought him a motocross bike, and his parents gave him a statue. Yes, the teenaged Parker is now memorialized in bronze.

Then Parker meets his new next-door neighbor, Tara Herpecheveux, in the most surprising way--she's sleeping in his bed. But Tara's strangeness, and undeniable attractability, is a hodge-podge of attributes--she's exotically beautiful, has the strangest blond dread locks, always wears mirrored sunglasses, and has an aversion to the belief of personal property.

As Parker gets more and more entangled in the strangeness that is Tara, he begins to notice the ever-increasing weird behavior of the students in his school. Odd cravings, incessantly strange behavior, and a general weirdness pervade the halls of the private school for the rich. Once Parker finally accepts the truth of what's happening, it's too late.

The ending, although slightly predictable in some ways, was a surprise overall. It left me feeling sad, but then again, most fairy tales have one or more tear-inducing scenes in them. DREAD LOCKS is an interesting retelling of some notable myths, and if you're into horror stories, this one should definitely do the trick!
