Summary of the Book:
When Minnie said she was dying for the perfect first kiss, she didn’t mean literally.
Minnie Kim blacks out during her first kiss, so she figures it must not have been a very good one. Shouldn’t she remember such a momentous occasion? And to make things worse, she thinks the jerk gave her the flu…but no. It’s vampirism.
Post-kiss Minnie is taken into the Aristos family of vampires to learn all the rules of her new life—and there are a lot—so she can continue to live her old one. That’s right, she’ll be going right back to school just as soon as she can learn to control her bloodlust. But there’s a lot more to it than that—her parents won’t have anything to do with a gangshi, and the kids at school don’t want to become her next victim. Not that Minnie would ever do that. Ew.
But Minnie doesn’t intend to let a little thing like death keep her from living. With the help of her totally hot and completely arrogant mentor Philo, who’s been seventeen since the days of Sparta, she plans to totally rock this vampire girl thing. And maybe, if she’s lucky, she’ll get a do-over on the perfect first kiss.
Vampire Diaries meets To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before in this funny coming of age series with vampires and other nasties.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This the first book in a series and the first book I have read by Ali Cross. I have seen other just have not had a chance to read them. I love the character of Minnie Kim. She is so sassy and upbeat. She is will to keep going even after everything that has happened to her. A little thing like becoming a vampire is not going to hold her back. She just needs a little vampire training and get back to her life. The descriptions are amazing and not over done. It was a story that flowed well and makes me want to read the next one.
My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
