I read this on the strength of The Outsiders and was not disappointed. This is nothing like her others and is in fact, not the type of book I'd normally go for but in the end I loved it. I read it much quicker than i normally would have because I just had to know what happened next. Definitely recommended!
Few books I read compel me to write a review on here. This book is not one of them. This is truly another good story by SE Hinton. Having read several others in grade school and now picking up this book 20 or so years later, I still enjoy this writer as much as I did when I was very young. The story was a bit odd in the beginning; the meeting and subsequent (forced?) friendship of a psychiatric patient and a vampire who eventually seems more human. The ending is heartbreaking and completely unexpected!
The jacket was a little misleading. Here I thought it would be a story about a guy getting psychiatric therapy, and it was a story about vampires. Still good though!
A story about a vampire that is actually pretty beleivable.
Outstanding book. Hope Hinton does more of these books.
