Pauley–previously known for her own book review site–has created a very interesting premise here: Mina Hamilton is having a hard enough time with high school and being seventeen in general when things get even more complicated.

But how can a girl choose between a great life in the human world with a best friends and an almost boyfriend, and her family and the allure of living forever (although, the idea of drinking blood is just gross). Well, Mina's about to find …
