Destiny Weller and her twin sister, Livvy, return from their summer vacation with an overpowering thirst –– an inhuman desire to drink blood.
Have they turned into vampires?
How will they keep their horrifying secret from their family and friends?
And can they find a way to become human again ... before it's too late?
Stine delivers a fast and breezy vampire tale punctuated with a few nasty shocks. The summer before senior year, high schooler Destiny Weller and her twin sister, Livvy, are trying to put their mother's suicide behind them and are working as camp counselors. Each is attracted to and bitten by Lorenzo "Renz" Angelini, an ancient vampire masquerading as a hunky staff member. Back at home, Destiny and Livvy have no recollection of Renz, but both are secretly overcome by a sudden lust for blood. Gory scenes of the sisters killing and feasting on small animals will sate horror fans ("And both girls buried their faces in the warm body, and fed... fed so hungrily on the warm blood"). As the sisters race to find the so-called Restorer, who alone can cure their condition, Renz appears in another guise and stalks Destiny to make her a full vampire. As in his Fear Street books, Stine sends his characters through the details of a plot that is basically all chase; the few glimpses of the sisters' everyday life won't slow down readers who like their chillers quick and light. Ages 12-up.

I loved this book. I wanted to read books about vampire teens, but not read Twilight because they already have them in my local library. This book was not what I was expecting from R.L. Stine! A MUST READ!
I really love this book, I highly recomend it.
I have read this book a lot of times! R.L Stine has written lots of amazing books. Since I wanted to read something other than his Goosebumps series, I came about this book. I love how everything in the book is very detailed and I can just clearly imagine it as if I were in the book. I love the whole story line. Two sisters and how they are completely different. How they are at camp and the mysterious Rez makes them feel. They are unaware that he is a vampire. Overall, I love this book from beginning to end.
