Why ever date a sparkly vampire that doesn't explode in sunlight or an oversize chihuahua who both seem to be overprotective when I could date a guy who is 10x hotter and clearly knows how to impress a woman?
Quite simply really, you don't.
Basically this story is about a 15 year old girl named Clare (short for Clarissa if I remember right) Fray who went to a Teen Club night party with her best friend Simon and while they were there she see's something that most teenagers don't even think of being able to witness. A murder. Though there's one problem, she's the only one that saw it and no one believes her.
Then after a few days of this event she learns that her mother has been lying to her for well... her entire life and the truth changes her lifestyle completely. In more ways then one.
All in all I think its a great mystery/adventure/dramatic/hilarious novel and can't wait to read the rest! The characters are believable to an extent and the love-triangle/square/some-other-odd-shape is just AMAZING! I highly recommend this series to anyone who likes anything with plot twists with characters along with anything fantasy related. Yes I'm talking to you too Twilight fans.
