It’s clear that Brennan and Larbalestier had a lot of fun skewering vampire tropes — and equally clear that they tease because they love. The result is a very funny book that zigs when you expect a zag and also manages to say a lot of interesting, insightful things about the dynamics within families of all kinds — both born and made.
Mel Duan lives in a town in Maine where vampires are a separate, but more or less equal, part of society. When a vampire, Francis, enrolls in her high school, she doesn’t believe his cover story and decides to figure out what’s going on. Also in the mix: a best friend who’s so obsessed with Francis she’s considering becoming a vampire in order to be with him forever, another friend whose father is missing and mother is acting strangely and a mysterious human guy who was raised by vampires.
