Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Conrad introduces a thoroughly contemporary heroine in Lucy Hellenberg, descendent of the Lucy who once captivated Bram Stoker, author of the original Dracula. Lucy is doing her best to survive being a sophomore in high school, complete with a reclusive father, prying teachers, an almost boyfriend and bad hair days in Seattle. Then, on her 16th birthday, she inherits a diary that has been passed down through the women in her family and learns that her English assignment is not just homework-it's her life. As she and her best friend Mina are stalked through restaurants and malls by the living descendents of Dracula himself, she learns some grown-up lessons about self reliance, the importance of true friends and family and that being a girl doesn't mean she's a sissy. This volume contains little in the way of gore, focusing instead on the power of the mind, garlic cologne and holy water baths. A hip and fun read that emphasizes solid values, with just a touch of feminism. (Fantasy. YA)

    Love, History, and Fun

    This book is great. I finshed it in 3 days and wished for more. For a preteen I loved it and I'm looking for more books by the same author. I give this 5 stars and want other people to buy it and read it. :)

    Reviewed by Jennifer Wardrip, aka "The Genius" for TeensReadToo.com

    Lucy Hellenberg lives a somewhat a-typical high school life. Her sixteenth birthday is approaching, but she's not too concerned with it. What bothers her is her father's inability to leave their house, a place that bears a strong resemblance to the one the Munsters of television fame lived in. She worries about whether or not Vic, her sometime-boyfriend, will ask her to the Homecoming Dance. She wonders if she'll ever survive algebra with a teacher like Mrs. Ruthen, otherwise known around Pacific Cedar High as Mrs. Ruthless. <BR/><BR/>To top it all off, her English teacher, Mr. Dobbs, has stared a unit on Bram Stoker's Dracula. Which might have been only mildly interesting (hey, it sure beat Beowulf or Shakespeare!) except for the very, very, very weird coincidences between Dracula and Lucy's own life. Like the fact that two of the main characters of the book are Lucy and Mina, and that Lucy's best friend just so happens to be named Mina. Like the fact that Henry Irving, an actor managed my Stoker back in the late 1800's, shares the same last name as Lucy's on-again, off-again boyfriend, Vic. Like that fact that, on her sixteenth birthday, Lucy's father presents her a journal passed down through her mother's family that lets her in on the little secret that Lucy is now destined to fight Dracula, the most powerful vampire of all. <BR/><BR/>Of course Lucy assumes her dad has went off the deep end, until she starts reading the journal and reads about her lineage. Suddenly, she can see vampires--real, live, blood-sucking vampires--everywhere she goes. And she knows it's up to her--along with the help of Mina, Mr. Dobbs, her father, her other best friend Mark, a cat named Professor V., a godfather who makes garlic perfume, and a boy named Christopher with a pet wolf named Kayla--to stop Dracula before he kills them all. <BR/><BR/>HIGH SCHOOL BITES is a great book! Full of action-adventure, interesting vampire trivia, and main characters that will have you rooting for them, I definitely hope there's another book in THE LUCY CHRONICLES!

    A charming paranormal chick lit satire of Buffy

    It started in high school student in English class when the teacher discussed Transylvania, Drac, etc. and now not long afterward Pacific Heights High School sophomore Lucy Hallenberg wears a cross, uses garlic perfume and avoids Seattle malls. On her sixteenth birthday, Lucy learns that all her female ancestors dating back to Bram Stoker are named after Lucy Barrows who rejected Dracula's spell that is actor Henry Irving allegedly playing the role. Now real vamps want to destroy the 'Lucys' by wrecking the life of the current one though she needs little help having devastated the dance.----- Lucy must deal with the local vampire population like her mom, grandmom, great-grandma and all the other Lucys before her, but first she needs to pass the Ruthless math class and learn to drive in case she needs a fast getaway. Her dad is no help as he is a hermit (just ask the principal) while her two best friends Mark and Mina agree she is Marilyn living with the Munsters so why worry about vampires. Still she knows what she must do, but it is difficult to remember to pack holy water and an algebra book when your boyfriend¿s surname is Irving.----- This is a charming paranormal chick lit satire of Buffy starring a wonderful protagonist struggling to be sixteen, make it through high school, and save the local world at the same time. Lucy is delightful as the latest superheroine in her line while the support cast also descendents from the Stoker age augment the fun. Though some escapades occur from seemingly out of nowhere causing disruption, younger teens will appreciate the amusing action-packed THE LUCY CHRONICLES: HIGH SCHOOL BITES.------ Harriet Klausner
