Read an Excerpt

My Sister the Vampire #4: Vampalicious!

Chapter One

Ivy Vega and her best friend, Sophia Hewitt, hustled through the oldest cemetery in Franklin Grove on their way to school Monday morning. The grassy path, stiff with frost, crunched loudly beneath their heavy boots, and Ivy pushed her hands into the pockets of her full-length, black down jacket to keep them warm.

I'm going to miss this old graveyard when I move to Europe, Ivy thought. Even though it was still a little dark, in the distance she could make out the low silhouette of her boyfriend's family crypt, where she and her friends had spent so much time hanging out. Outside the cemetery gates, the lights of nearby houses twinkled.

"Such a killer party!" Sophia exclaimed, interrupting Ivy's thoughts. It seemed like forever ago, but on Saturday, Ivy's human twin, Olivia, had been initiated into the vampire community, and they'd had a little celebration. "You must be seriously excited," Sophia went on, "that Olivia knowing about vampires isn't a secret anymore. It's all over the Vorld Vide Veb."

Ivy pressed her mouth down into her black knitted scarf and exhaled, warming her neck. That's not the only thing that isn't a secret any longer, she thought. "Sophia," she said aloud, "there's something I have to tell you."

Olivia Abbott was met by a hot blast of indoor air as she opened one of the huge oak front doors of Franklin Grove Middle School. Scanning the lobby, she pulled off her hat and swung it around by one of the pink pom-poms that hung from its earflaps. She jumped up and down to get the cold out. Olivia had worn her cheerleading uniform for aschool spirit assembly, but even with leggings, she felt like an icicle.

Where are you, Camilla? Olivia thought as she hopped from foot to foot, keeping her eyes peeled for her friend. I have huge news!

The door to the outside swung open, and Olivia looked over eagerly. Unfortunately, it was just Charlotte Brown, Olivia's snotty cheerleading captain. She was wearing fluffy white earmuffs.

"Hi, Charlotte," Olivia said, unable to keep the disappointment out of her voice. Charlotte let the door swing shut behind her, but her cheerleading cronies, Katie and Alison, hurried in on her heels. They were wearing fluffy earmuffs, too.

"Oh, Olivia, I'm so totally cold!" Charlotte whined.

"We're cold, too!" said Katie and Alison, who had a talent for always thinking the same thing as Charlotte.

"Then you'd all better get inside right away and warm up!" Olivia said, switching on her smile. They skipped past without another word.

One person after another trickled into school, and every time the door to the outside opened, Olivia's heart leaped. Finally she caught sight of Camilla's bouncy blond curls.

"Camilla!" Olivia called.

"Hey," Camilla said, her face breaking into an easy smile when she saw Olivia. "Sorry I'm a little late. You sounded so excited on the phone last night. What's up?"

Olivia grinned. "Only the biggest news of my entire life!"

Camilla looked at her skeptically. "Bigger than finding out you have a long-lost twin sister?"

Olivia wrinkled her nose; Camilla had a point. Olivia and Ivy hadn't even known they each had a twin until Olivia's first day of school in Franklin Grove a few months ago. Come to think of it, the whole my-sister-is-a-vampire thing was big news, too, but of course Camilla didn't know anything about that. Olivia was one of the only humans in the world who did.

"Just as big," Olivia decided, pulling Camilla behind the enormous potted ferns in the corner of the lobby.

Olivia took a deep breath. "You can't tell anyone," she said. "Promise?"

"Promise," Camilla said solemnly. "Just tell me already!"

"I am telling you," Ivy protested.

"No," Sophia said, "what you're doing is trying to tell me. So far you're just sighing a lot."

Ivy sighed again, sending a tiny cloud into the cold air. "I still can't believe it," Ivy murmured by way of explanation.

"Ivy," Sophia said sternly, "I'm freezing my fangs off here."

"You don't have fangs," replied Ivy, peering around the cemetery to make sure no one else was lurking nearby. "You file them like the rest of us."

"It's an expression," Sophia said, her voice rising with frustration. "Now tell me your big revelation!"

"I found . . ." Ivy gulped. "Olivia and I found out . . ."

Sophia stared at her impatiently.

"Who my real father is," Ivy blurted at last.

"Really?" Camilla cried, her eyes widening. Olivia nodded, biting her lip to contain her smile. "I'm so happy for you!" Camilla threw her arms around Olivia, accidentally knocking one of the ferns. Olivia giggled.

"I knew you and Ivy would find some answers if you kept looking," Camilla said proudly.

Olivia had to admit that their perseverance had paid off. She and her sister had been trying to solve the mystery of who their parents were since they'd first realized they were twins.

"Thanks, Camilla," Olivia said, hugging her again. "I wanted to tell you in person."

"So who is he? Who's your dad?" Camilla asked, her voice bursting with curiosity.

Olivia pursed her lips, savoring the moment.

Camilla read her face. "I knew it!" she squealed. "It's a celebrity! I always thought you two had George Clooney's nose!"

"Nope," Olivia shook her head coyly. "Even better."

"Antonio Banderas?" Camilla whispered in awe.

"Well then, who?" Sophia said excitedly, wrapping her arm around Ivy's as they made their way out of the cemetery.

Ivy's long dark hair fell in front of her face. "He's, uh, his name is . . . Karl Lazar," she sputtered. Why am I having so much trouble telling my oldest friend the whole story? Ivy wondered. Somehow, this was just too unbelievable to blurt out.

"Lazar?" Sophia repeated. "You mean that Transylvanian vamp aristocrat who fell for a human?"

Ivy nodded dumbly.

"That's amazing! Do you know if he's still alive?" Sophia asked.

"Oh, he's alive," Ivy said.

    This was a Christmas gift from my 9-year old...cute story...

    My 9-year old gave this to me for Christmas because she thought I'd like a vampire story. It was actually quite cute. I'm going to give it to her to read now. It seems great for kids about her age.

    Twin sisters are born to a vampire father and a human mother. One is vampire, one is human. Their father separates them at about a year old after their mother dies, and the vampire daughter lives with him and the human daughter is adopted by a human couple.

    In their teens, they are reunited when the human daughter moves to the same town as the vampire daughter, and they end up going to the same school. However, now the father of the vampire girl has taken a job in Europe and they're moving away. The daughter try everything to get him to stay, because they don't want to be separated again.

    Again, very cute story. My ONLY complaint is that there were a few errors in the book, mostly typos. It doesn't impact the story at all, but it's just my pet peeve.

    VAMPALICIOUS! continues where RE-VAMPED! left off. Ivy and Olivia have solidified a bond between them, which only twin sisters can share. It doesn't matter that neither knew the other existed, or that one is human and the other is a vampire. They have just found each other this school year and will do everything they can to stay together. <BR/><BR/>Now that Mr. Vega has decided to move to Europe for his new job, Ivy and Olivia and their assortment of friends band together to create a way to keep Ivy and her father in Franklin Grove. They brainstorm and decide to do a power point presentation on the pros of Franklin Grove and the cons of Europe. Throwing in World War pictures and information on the Bubonic Plague, they can't fail with their presentation. But Mr. Vega isn't swayed, though he does compliment them on the presentation of the information. <BR/><BR/>The gang returns to the drawing board, and decides if he were to fall in love in Franklin Grove, there's no way he'd want to be separated from his true love. Ivy, Olivia, and Mr. Vega are at a local restaurant and their waitress, Alice, strikes up a conversation with them. The two girls are positive that there are sparks between the adults and invite Alice, unknowingly, over to Ivy's house for a romantic dinner. <BR/><BR/>Mr. Vega quickly catches on to the plot during dinner, and informs the girl that the dinner conversation was interesting, but the date was a disaster. So the girls are at a loss for how to keep Ivy and her father in Franklin Grove. Finally admitting defeat, they decide to just enjoy their final days together and plan a surprise going-away party for Mr. Vega. <BR/><BR/>In the end though, it may be that an option they never thought possible will be the only solution to keeping Mr. Vega from wanting to run away to Europe. <BR/><BR/>This is yet another cute addition to the MY SISTER THE VAMPIRE series. It is a quick read and fun to watch Ivy and Olivia hatch one crazy scheme after another. The continuation of the series doesn't disappoint!
