More like 3.5. This is clearly a response to Twilight, though the authors may not have consciously started out intending to write a response. It's got daywalking vampires, but actual efforts were made to have worldbuilding. (Sorry if you liked Twilight. I didn't. My god the sparkling. But I digress.)

Anyway, the characters in this book are pretty convincing as real teenagers. The only thing that bothers me is ... it's not enough for them to be teenagers who more or less have their heads on straight, they are really smart teenagers who have perfect or almost-perfect test scores and want to go to Oxford or the Ivy League? Anyway.

It was nice to see a YA main character/cover subject who was something other than an enticingly depicted white teenager.
