Vampire Kisses

Vampire Kisses by Ellen Schreiber is a quirky "young adult" vampire novel. The protagonist is a 16 year old "Goth Girl" named Raven. She doesn't fit in with her family or anyone else in the small town she refers to as "Dullsville." Luckily she has a fine brain, a quick wit and a strong sense of self.

Raven is obsessed with vampires. She tells people she wants to be one when she grows up. When a strange family moves into a long deserted (and thought haunted) mansion, rumors start to fly. Raven is half convinced that the teenaged son, Alexander, is a vampire. She sneaks into his house to find proof and ends up bumping into him in the dark before running home. Before long she gets an invitation to dinner from Alexander. Raven soon falls in love with him but doesn't know if it's because she thinks he's a vampire.

Kisses is more about acceptance than it is about vampires. It's also about finding out who you are and having the strength to be that no matter what anyone says. The vampire angle is just an idea to hinge the story on. The book's ending is a bit open ended. There are 4 more books in this series but I don't know if Raven continues.

Thanks for the comment. I will read it as soon as I can. Sorry I have to say this but I've wasted a lot of time with SPAM lately. If you are posting a link to a site that is not related to books I will not publish it, I'll mark it as SPAM.
