Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Claudia Mills
In this latest "Vampire Island" story, Lexie Livingston has been making progress toward leaving her vampire past behind and becoming a fully human student at Parrish High School in New York City, but the dark side beckons to her when she decides to run for class president against obnoxious popular girl Mina Pringle and erstwhile heartthrob Dylan Easterby. ("O Easter would be joyous, if Easterby were mine," Lexie writes in her secret journal—the same secret journal from which shameless Mina steals her own campaign rhetoric and expressions of love for Dylan.) It does not help that Lexie is also dealing with the rogue behavior of a pair of pixies, stationed at her house while they are in the process of relocating from the Old World to the New. (How could it help when the pixies show up at school announcing to Lexie's rivals that Lexie is a "fartsmelt raisin chicken"?) Griffin's deliciously silly mix of pixie hijinks, dirty politics, high school cattiness, and vampire lore also delivers a not-so-silly message about how we jeopardize our humanity when we want to win at all costs. Sure to inspire a taste for butterscotch cupcakes, quotes from doomed poets, and more "Vampire Island" adventures. Reviewer: Claudia Mills, Ph.D.
School Library Journal
Gr 4–8—The Livingstone kids continue their adventures as fruit-bat hybrids making a go of it in New York City. Lexie wants to change her image from a Goth-doomed poet to be more like the blond and popular Mina. This way maybe Dylan, the school heartthrob, would see her with different eyes. When Mina asks Lexie to be her speechwriter for the ninth-grade presidential campaign, Lexie thinks this is her opportunity. Unfortunately she learns the hard way that Mina is just using her and decides to run for the office herself. Her houseguests from "the Old World" offer to help her in exchange for cupcakes, but this turns out to have some serious ramifications, for pixies are not to be trusted. They tap into Lexie's evil, vampire dark side, encouraging her to run a dirty campaign that puts her relationships with her friends and her siblings at risk. Griffin continues to create a funny, suspenseful Goth thriller that children will sink their teeth into. The Livingstone siblings are likable characters who are facing issues that readers can easily identify with. This book can stand on its own, but reading the complete series offers better insight into and understanding of the story line.—Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NY
