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...more
Sophie is one very entertaining narrator - she's witty, driven, curious as hell and investigative. Sophie is also competitive to a fault, and we see all these characteristics of her in the book. Funny enough, some of these characteristics drive and shape the plot. For instance, her curiosity and investigative streak leads her into discovering far more about the newcomers in her school than her getting-to-know-you article required. Sh...more
Something tells me we would have gotten along famously in high school.
Snarky, dry humor, teensy-bit off-kilter ... I loved this book. Sophie McGee is a hysterical narrator, and Robinson's tight writing (and killer sense of humour) had me laughing EVERY OVER SENTENCE. I am anxiously awaiting whatever next Robinson will write. I'm making my supervisor read this book tomorrow --- I honestly can say that I will happily promote this book to both the Twilight and anti-Twilight...more
Many nods to the series or books appear in this novel full of humor. First of all, a tribute to Stephanie Meyers saga: a school close to a forest, a clan of vampires that can not come to school unnotice. The best part was to imagine vampire as a bunch of cosplay characters with sharp teeth. Almost as if the author was making fun of her subject nicely.
The reader can spot some scenes from "Dawson" like the one with the secret code used by James and Sophie to communicate, or the fact that...more

Well, when I first cracked it open, I wasn't overly impressed. It was generic for YA and overall I have read this story many times over. But as it continued I found that while the plot is nothing new I enjoyed the humor that was written into this book.
The main character, Sophie, in my opinion was very likable. She had me laughing so much my sides were aching and I actually liked how her story played out for the most part.
After reading half the book I'm wondering were the author is going with this cause I gotta say it's interesting how she approaches the situation at hand but I don't see what the point is yes she's a loner ( I like how the author describes it as the main character thinking she's to good for everyone when really she's a fuckin loner period) and has a neighbor who is a dude who just so happens to be a vampire and she who just so happens to be a child of something...more

Obviously there are some instances when it was a typical young-adult book. Way, way, way, WAY too many references to Pop culture. A couple stupid lines that ruined great moments in the book (For example "this is...more

Starting with the cover--I love it. It has a simple beauty, but I will admit that I have no idea how it plays into the story, other than the old fashioned bat&vampire connection.
I'm beyond over the vampire craze, but since I'll be one...more

Finally a smart protagonist. Sophie knows when somethings not right and she’s determined to find out. I’ll make this spoiler free & just state the obvious.
Every character in this book is fitting and perfect to the T. Noone was too evil & noone was too smart for their own good. Everyone had there own personality, except the twins of course. And everyone had a purpose. There were no random characters thrown in the book just for a filler.
The flow of the story was great. It wen...more

I loved it.
Sophie's character was real, straight-forward and downright hilarious.You couldn't help but love her.
James was sweet and the way James' and Sophie's relationship was brought- Sophie's take on him and their history together- made me love it and made it unique.
And the story, it isn't often that you come across a vampire story that manages to be hilarious, interesting and have just the right amount of action to top it all off. This one did. And usually broodiness comes with the...more

He flashes a toothy smile. In any other time, under any other circumstances, I would almost think that he was...
"Are you flirting with me?" I ask, stunned. "Now?"
I think I see a flicker of disappointment was across his features, but it could just be a shadow. "Please," he says coolly. "I was just curious. And besides, I thought the whole vampire thing was supposed to be sexy. I just wanted to make sure you weren't going to start giggling and twirling your hair.”
