“Only a true best friend can protect you from your immortal enemies!”

In this book there are three different types of Vampires: the Moroi, the royals; the Damphir, half-human half-vampires who are trained to protect the Moroi; and the Strigoi, an immortal bunch of Vampires that kill innocents every day. Lissa Dragomir, a Moroi princess, is the last of her family’s blood line, making her extremely susceptible to the cravings of the Strigoi, who are hell-bent on killing her. Rose Hathaway, Lissa’s best friend, is a Damphir who is just as hell-bent on protecting her. Both girls, who escaped St. Vladamir’s Academy just two years prior, have been caught and dragged back where their world becomes even more dangerous – inside the school gates. I love this book, and if you love Twilight you will love this series as well.

Chrysanthemum is a beautiful story about overcoming being different, and learning to love who you are. Kevin Henkes is a genius in my opinion, and I loved this book! When Chrysanthemum was little she absolutely loved her name. However, when she gets to school she begins to dislike it because she gets made fun of by other kids... that is until she meets one special teacher.

Get ready for a trip down memory lane as you experience your childhood fairy tales with humorous new twists. The trip to “happily ever after” includes a slightly modified cast such as: “Snow Yellow and the Seven Short Men” and more. I picked up this book during my break and couldn’t put it down. Very funny!
