I swear, my life was always totally normal.
Normal house, normal family, normal school. My looks are average, I don't have any superpowers, no one's showing up to tell me I'm a princess—you get the picture. But when my junior year started, something not normal happened. There were new kids at school . . . new kids with a wardrobe straight out of a 19th-century romance novel, and an inexplicable desire to stay at school until sundown.
And on top of that, James Hallowell showed up. James, who stole my sandwiches in fourth grade and teased me mercilessly through middle school. James, who now seems to have the power to make my heart race any time he comes near.
But something weird is going on. Because James rarely goes out during the day. And he seems stronger than your typical guy. And he knows the new kids, all of whom seem to be harboring some kind of deep secret. . . .
Robinson's debut is a snappy, romantic tale in which even vampires have to deal with high school drama. Junior Sophie McGee is focused on becoming editor-in-chief of the school paper and thinks writing fluff pieces on new students like Vlad Smithson is a waste of time. Finding out that all the new kids know each other, her investigative reporter instincts are tickled, and she's compelled to snoop. Complications start when James, her old next-door nemesis/best friend, returns to town and is somehow connected to the creepy new kids. Things turn downright dangerous after Sophie is attacked and uncovers Vlad's real reason for moving to town. James tries to protect her, but he's not exactly the boy she remembers, and dealing with their mutual attraction is hard since it appears that they're going to end up on opposite sides. Robinson keeps things light through Sophie's sense of humor, and danger and excitement push the story forward. Lively twists and unusual characters add fun to what is ultimately a love story, but many unresolved questions indicate a sequel may lie ahead. Ages 12 up.
