My thoughts:In this books we find Raven, a goth girl, in love with vampires. But when she finds one will see believe it, be frightened, or fall in love. I know the answer to this question. My question to you is how would you feel? I think I would be a non believer. just due to the fact that we always hope certain things could be true, but our deepest desires are false. Not saying that I would never be one to want to be a vampire like her. Sure Stephanie Meyer makes them sound fabulous, but Anne Rice created monsters. And I would want no part of that. As much as I love to read and write about them. NON-BELIEVER!
Raven has a lot more to deal with other then her fascination with vampires. Trevor the cocky idiot she goes to school with. causing trouble at every turn.
