Review by Teen Review Board Member Julia
All her life, Raven wanted to be a vampire. When Alexander Sterling moves into the vacant, supposedly haunted mansion that Raven often visits, she finds evidence that his family may be vampires. I enjoyed this book because of the light, humorous writing style and the well-developed characters. I was able to relate to Raven and I admired her strong sense of who she is. I recommend this book to those who would like a vampire story with humour and without any gore or violence. Since the book used traditional vampire lore, unlike many vampire books in the young adult genre, there are few that are similar. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer and L.J. Smith’s Night World may appeal to fans of Ellen Schreiber, and vice versa.
