"Imagine finding the love of your life, then losing him. Yes, people lose their loved ones all the time to war and disease, accidents and murder. But imagine watching your lover change before your eyes, devolve into some other being, and you're powerless to bring him back."

As an 8th grade language arts teacher, I can think of a number of reasons why this vampire series may resonate with readers, especially at the teenage level. "The Society of S" is a story about a teenaged girl, Ari, who is trying to find herself, trying to track down the mother she never met, trying to solve murders and mysteries, trying to apply a classical home-schooled education to the unpleasantness of public realities, trying to come to terms with the truths behind the lies she's been told throughout her life by the people closest to her, and all the while trying to learn how to deal with an "affliction" that runs in the family.

Susan Hubbard has created a fantasy world that many teenage and adult readers will not only enjoy as entertainment but also as a portal to understanding some of the more challenging facets of life that may feel all too familiar as the pages turn.
