Teen Read Week Book Reviews – Books with “Bite”

Vampire Kisses series by Ellen Schreiber.  Young fans do not have to miss out on the vampire craze.  Schreiber writes a clean, junior-high acceptable, series with a Goth heroine who falls for the new guy at school, only to learn he lives a creepy mansion.

A high school boy is at the center of a demon’s attempt to take a vacation from Hell in Repossessed.  Award-winning young adult author A.M. Jenkins takes a thoughtful look at what it means to be human and shows there is hope for us all in this humorous take on the subject.

For the older high school student Vampire Diaries by L.A. Banks has become a classic.  The two-volume, four book set, deals with high school-age twins getting caught up in something they do not fully comprehend.    A.M. Jenkins provides a sensual ghost story, Beating Heart, in a format that combines narrative and poetry.  It is a truly haunting story.
