What Mrs N's Been Reading - Vampire Kisses

Just finished Ellen Schreiber's Vampire Kisses. When Raven, now in high school, was in kindergarten, her answer to the question "What do you want to be when you grow up?" got her pretty much branded as an outcast for life in her small town. Not sure why everyone thought that "a vampire" was such an odd answer to that question, but hey, taste is pretty subjective. Raven is now a goth girl whose only friend has been Becky, an outcast farm girl. When a mysterious family moves into the abandoned, thought to be haunted, mansion in the neighborhood, naturally tongues are wagging, and Raven is the subject of a lot of bad jokes and stupid comments. When she sees a mysterious figure in the attic window, her curiosity is piqued and she becomes fascinated with finding out more, and meeting the mystery man. But is he what Raven expects? You may not be entirely sure until the very end. This was a quick, light, fun, funny (loved how she got the high school jock/lech - priceless!) read that would be perfectly appropriate for both middle and high school students.
