Mystery and Coming-Of-Age

I randomly picked this novel up from a library shelf, read the description on the back cover, and was instantly intrigued. The story promised a whole new outlook on vampirism, and it certainly delivered.

Set in an all-girls boarding school, the novel takes the reader through a year in the life of the first-person narrator - a student at the school who is struggling with her own coming-of-age and the mysterious new girl who poses a major threat. The new girl, Ernessa, is highly-polished but extremely eccentric and, in the narrator's point-of-view, comes between her and her best friend, Lucy. As Lucy grows weaker, Ernessa grows more bizarre, prompting the narrator to take drastic measures in order to be rid of this increasing threat.

Klein does an excellent job of building the narrator's world through her eyes and convincing the reader to look through those eyes. It's a great novel for women of all ages.
