Editorial Reviews

CM: Canadian Review of Materials
"...contains characters with whom the reader will connect. Not everyone has a friend who is a vampire, but many readers will have a friend who is unusual and whom others don't understand...The author depicts very different families, each of which has concerns for its own and its childrenís safety. Recommended."
