I do not usually pick up books about vampires, but this one jumped out at me from the shelf in the library and I figured I’d give it a try. It is the first in a newer series, and is relatively light with some dark moments, and looks at a different type of vampire that does not suck blood. I found the main character, Daisy, who is in high school to be a likeable character. Her family is unique, and her interactions with her crush are realistic and common to most teens I would think. Overall this was an enjoyable read. It is not a book that was written to be used in a classroom, but would be an appropriate book to recommend to readers grades 7-12, though reading level is probably more middle grades oriented.
