Publisher: Harper Teen
Pub Date: Aug 5 2005
Genre: Young Adult
The mansion on top of Benson Hill has been empty and boarded up for years. But a new family has moved in. A family that never ventures out during the day. Who are these creepy people -- especially the handsome, dark, and elusive Alexander Sterling? Or rather, what are they? Could the town gossip actually be true? Are they vampires?
Raven, who secretly covets a vampire kiss, both at the risk of her own mortality and Alexander's loving trust, is dying to uncover the truth.
My Review: Raven Maddison is a goth, and a keeps to herself. She dresses differently by only wearing dark clothes. She likes the night and she loves vampires. Ever since her she was a little girl she wanted/wished for one thing- to be a vampire. She grew up watching horror movies like bed time story. But when a mysterious guy who isn't seen during the day, moves into the mansion up at Benson Hill things are about to change and Raven just might be one closer to her wish.
