Blessed by Cynthia Leitich Smith-ESSENTIAL

BlessedSmith, Cynthia Leitich, Blessed. Candlewick Press, 2011. Pgs. 480. Language: G, Violence: PG-13, Sexual Content: PG-13

Quincy is a vampire and she has a lot on her plate. With her parents dead, she’s busy running a restaurant and trying to save her undead life. Her best friend, Kieran, a hybrid werewolf, has been accused of murder and needs her help clearing his name. To make matters worse, Bradley Sanguini, the evil vampire who “blessed” Quincie, is channeling the spirit of Drac Prime, the original count, to create a vampire army and to take over the world. Can Quincie save her friend, herself, and everyone else from a life (or after-life) that no one would want?

A fun, action-filled vampire book for paranormal fans. The characters are intriguing. The story is a little long, but fans of this genre as well as apocalyptic fiction will relish reading this book. MS, HS. ESSENTIAL. Reviewer: Jessica M, Library Media Specialist, Olympus Jr. High
