I swear, my life was always totally normal.

Normal house, normal family, normal school. My looks are average, I don't have any superpowers, no one's showing up to tell me I'm a princess—you get the picture. But when my junior year started, something not normal happened. There were new kids at school . . . new kids with a wardrobe straight out of a 19th-century romance novel, and an inexplicable desire to stay at school until sundown.

And on top of that, James Hallowell showed up. James, who stole my sandwiches in fourth grade and teased me mercilessly through middle school. James, who now seems to have the power to make my heart race any time he comes near.

But something weird is going on. Because James rarely goes out during the day. And he seems stronger than your typical guy. And he knows the new kids, all of whom seem to be harboring some kind of deep secret. . . .

A. M. Robinson grew up in Indiana, but now lives in New York City, where she works in the publishing industry. She graduated from Indiana University with a double major in English and Chinese, but she is obviously only using the first one.Vampire Crushis her first book.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as I remembered I remember reading this book when I was in junior high, and I absolutely loved it. Now that I am older, I can't help but see all the problems with this book. There is a girl in school, who gets reunited with her childhood friend who turns out to be a vampire. Then there is a group of vampires that come to school as well. Can anyone say twilight? It honestly just seemed like a really bad knockoff of Twilight.  The characters had no depth, in the end, I could honestly care less about what happened to them, because I wasn't given much to like. I wasn't given a heroin to root for. Just a bunch of young teens playing vampire in a school.  I can see why I would have liked it when I was younger, because back then I focused on the story, that's it. I didn't think about tropes, or character development, or the style the book was written in. Back then I gave any book that I liked in the least bit, 5 stars. Back then, I had no idea, on how to separate the bad books, from the okay books, to the good books, to the amazing books. Now that I'm older I can't help but dislike this book. It's all been done before. All of it. If I want a sweet vampire book, that takes place in school, I'll just read Twilight. I will however recommend this book to those in middle grade. Because I seemed to like it back then.

Editorial Reviews

“Robinson’s debut novel is full of action, adventure, and suspense, with some romance as well. The fast-moving plot deals with issues like teen angst, facing your fears, and being true to yourself all rolled up with evil vampires and some serious fight scenes. An entertaining and satisfying read.”
