Jordan's life sucks. Her boyfriend, Michael, dumped her, slept his way through half the student body, and then killed himself. But now, somehow, he appears at her window every night, begging her to let him in.
Jordan can't understand why he wants her, but she feels her resistance wearing down. After all, her life -- once a broken re...more
These days, Jordan's got a lot on her mind. Her social phobias are getting the better of her, she thinks she messed things up with a guy she really connected with... and her ex-boyfriend, popular jock Michael, has been appearing at her bedroom window since the night after his funeral. It seems the rumors that Michael killed himself aren't true -- he was attacked by a vampire, and became one himself. Now he wants Jordan to join him. Every night, he pleads ...more
I really enjoyed this book. I got pulled into the story within first few pages and finished the books in a few hours (it is only 204 pages so its a quick read). There wasnt any twists or suspense in this story like most parnormal stories but I liked the main character Jordan and her struggles to deal with her situation. Actually I would say ther ...more
Its all about the girl going high school getting drunk doing drugs, and doing guys. Although this book sounds intresting to read when I read the reviews and the books description, NOTHING GOOD REALLY HAP ...more
It simply amazes me that such people exist. Or is the author trying too hard? Does she really think teenagers are like that these days? Because I know for sure I wont sleep with a new guy every week just because I dumped my old asshole of a boyfriend.
Gosh there are just so many things wrong with this book. But mai ...more
For such a badass pot smoking, drinking, partying girl, Jordan's personality is completely the opposite of all that. Who she is and what she does just doesn't seem to match.
Also I felt like I was thrown in the middle of a book because nothing was explained right, people were mentioned without us being told who they were, and it was just terribly written.
I did find Jordan annoying several times, but that was part of the point of the book.
I'll try to come back later and write a longer (and hopefully better) review, but I'll settle right now for saying that this was good story told by a solid storyteller.
I count myself very lucky that my introduction to Amanda Marrone’s work was through Devoured, which I thought to be an original story with some quite thrilling moments. If I’d started with Uninvited I would never have touched another one of her books.
I’m guessing that if you’re a teenager in the 14-19yr old bracket (which is the targe ...more

In his newfound departed state, Michael appears nightly at Jordan’s window, begging to ...more
To start off, honestly, this book was awful. Characters, plot line, mood, all of it. It is about a girl named Jordan who doesn't exactly do the right things. She drinks, partys, and does drugs. Her best friend Rachael is a lot worse. For the past 3 months Jordan is stalked by her ex boyfriend, who has just died and has come back as a vampire. He is at her window everynight and is just creepy.
All of the characters are one dimensional and are not written well. Jordan just complains and drinks all ...more
This book is written in a prose for a 12 year old-- but the main character-- and all of her friends-- are promiscuous, drug taking drunks who have conversations about wanting to "nail" teachers, where they'll get their next weed stash and how their boyfriends "fluids" taste. Not exactly what I'd want my 12 year old to be reading. But-- it's not written for an adult either-- I can't determi ...more
A wonderfully bloodcurdling tale will keep you fliping through page ...more
