Red Fox by Lara Fanning
In the 1950’s, a Siberian scientist began an experiment with one goal in mind - to breed a domesticated variation of the red fox. After ten generations of breeding the scientist had reduced the Adrenalin levels in the animal and created a tame creature named the Silver Fox.
Decades later, the Australian government use this knowledge to devise a shocking plan that will end humanity as the world knows it.
When Freya Walker and her family are ordered to attend a town meeting by the ruthless Biocentric government, Freya is certain something horrible will occur.
The people of her town are split into four groups of people: As, Bs, Cs and Ds. Freya is the only one placed into the mysterious Bs group and transported to a ring in the bush-land where she must survive a fortnight without food, water or weapons with her new companion and fellow Bs member, Whilliam Cliff.
As Freya and Whil begin to unravel the truth behind the Bs group, fighting for their freedom becomes a key part in overthrowing the Government and putting an end to their heinous plans for humanity.

I am a 27-year-old Australian woman and began writing novels of all genres when I was just a girl. This manuscript, titled Red Fox, was the first novel I began writing with the sincere intent of sharing the book with the world upon its completion. I wrote Red Fox when I was twenty years old, and due to the passion I felt for the story-line, characters, and plot, the first draft was finished within four weeks of its beginning.
Red Fox follows the adolescent years of a girl named Freya Walker, who has grown up in a time period rife with natural disasters, poverty, and economic collapse brought upon by the fall of the natural world and government greed. Freya discovers that the Biocentrics have developed a plan to revert modern humans into a more naturalistic state through a selective breeding program. Developing such a plotline allowed me to explore a number of gripping and compelling themes, but Red Fox asks the question that many people, today, are asking:
“Where do we find balance between conserving the natural world and bettering mankind?”
The themes in Red Fox revolve around loyalty, courage, hope, empathy, acceptance, and bravery, while many of the lines between good and evil are blurred. The story is highly relevant in our modern society, as the struggles that Freya and her companions face reflect those that people all across the world are now facing.
The book contains subtle references to climate change and environmental degradation caused by humankind, however these are presented in a way that is open to interpretation. The novel is written in a manner that promotes personal reflection and thought.
Red Fox is the first novel of a three-part series. The two following novels are titled Red Fox, Silver Fox and Earth of Foxes. and the characters within the novel – both good and evil – are far more complex and relatable than other characters from similar titles. Due to the relevance of the issues within Red Fox, I would love to see the novel read by many more young people. Red Fox is driven by an adventurous and emotive writing style, and is thought-provoking while also being refreshing, fun, and easy to read.
My passion for writing, my love of the natural world, and my fondness of the kindness humans can display was poured into this novel. I would love to share that with other young people while inspiring them through the concepts and characters in Red Fox.
Lara Fanning is a 27-year-old Australian author who writes fiction, sci-fi, and fantasy novels that are often set in either highly-modified modern or untouched wild settings. She attempts to present thought-provoking themes in a unique manner, often touching upon themes of environmental conservation, advancing technologies and sciences, and human spirit and strength. In her works, Lara Fanning attempts to provoke reader reflection through the use of fast-paced action and adventure scenes alongside complicated, multi-dimensional characters. Currently, her published works comprise three young adult novels that are part of a dystopian-adventure trilogy called the Red Fox series. A new stand-alone novel will be released in 2021.
Lara Fanning completed a Bachelor of Zoology in 2018, and a science honors degree in 2019, majoring in animal welfare science. In her university years, she focused her attention on environmental and animal welfare studies. Aside from writing, her passions include horse riding, animal training, hiking and swimming, drawing, and ice skating.
