Just because Mel lives in New Whitby, a city founded by vampires,
doesn’t mean she knows any of the blood-drinking undead personally. That
is, until the day a vampire shows up at her high school and her best
friend, Cathy, seems ready to fall in love with him. It’s up to Mel to
save Cathy from a mistake she might regret for all eternity!
Add a mysterious disappearance, a cranky vampire cop, a number of unlikely romantic entanglements, and the occasional zombie and soon Mel is hip-deep in an adventure that is equal parts hilarious and touching.
Acclaimed authors Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan team up to create a witty and poignant story of cool vampires, warm friendships, and the changes that test the bonds of love.
