Poor Finbar. Firstly, he is stuck with that name, then he is tall, skinny, pale, completely unathletic and has just found out he has an allergy to the sun. It doesn't help that his twin brother, Luke, is muscular, tan and can play every sport known to man. When a move from Indiana to Brooklyn splits the boys up so that they are attending different high schools, Fin decides this is his chance to reinvent himself. How can he make himself more attractive? To play up his unique features and become a vampire obviously. At first, this book seems like it is going to be a very stereotypical story of self discovery. I was pleasantly surprised by the sincerity of the situation and the characters. Fin certainly does not have all of the answers and while he knows pretending to be something he is not isn't quite right, he just can't see any other way which rings very true. The social situations and the other kids we get to know also seem very genuine.
