Are vampires fact or fiction? When Lucy turns sixteen she learns a bone-chilling truth. Vampires are real and not everything in the movie and book Dracula aren't true. Vampires CAN walk in sunlight, but they'd rather not. Worst of all, Lucy finds out that she is a descendant of the Lucy featured in Dracula and there are lots of vampires living in her city, Seattle, including Dracula himself. It doesn't help either that her boyfriend is one himself. There's also a wierd twist. Mina was Lucy's friend in the movie and the Lucy featured in High School Bites has a friend also called Mina and she has a strange resemblance to the one in the movie.
Lucy learns from a diary that the original Lucy and all her female descendants(all called Lucy) kept. Lucy learns that she herself can defeat vampires and that she had special powers to do just that. Plus, she gets help from her dad. He knows about vampires and he gives her special garlic perfume specially formulated to repel vampires.
I liked this book because it had some creative ideas and the storyline twists and turns. But, parts of it were pretty boring. Overall, I think that this is a good read, but you shouldn't spend too much time on it.
