Paperback: 416 pages

Summary: 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. . . .

Finally another Vampire book I love. One thats so modern it even mentions Rihanna and Twilight. A.M Robinson has introduced a realistic set of vampires to the world. Very relatable very likeable. When I first started the book I had my doubts. I thought it was going to be another Twilight. Oh how wrong I was as a matter of fact this book lets say mentions Twilight in a humorous way which will have you giggling.

The quality of writing is fantastic the pace, the orginality, fullness of the development and the fluidity. All these make a good novel and this novel has them all. You can definanlty see all these characters in a school that you go to. Even though they are vampires they are all still going through the same things teenagers go through and thats what makes me relate to it a lot. From the Love/hate relationship with Sophie and James to the Growing apart relationship between Vlad and Marisabel these sort of aspects in this book make it what it is a fantastic romance novel. Its light hearted its not so serious which is refreshing from the other Vampire books I have read.

There is a lot of humour in this book. My favourite line is “ "His eyes are warm as he leans forward this is either a kiss or a really slow head-butt” these humours one liners just make the book not so doom and gloom. The plot is definanlty something that I loved most about this book. Always surprises always making my heart flutter a little bit so thank you A.M Robinson. You’ve created a world I feel a part of and never want to leave. Congratulations on the Amazing Novel and I hope and pray there will be a follow up! Go buy this book! You will NOT be disapointed.
