This novel grabs the reader's attention and doesn't let go. Reluctant readers and unenthusiastic students will identify with Devin and Frankie, who would rather do anything than read or study. When they find themselves literally in the novel Dracula and must read it in order to return to their own world, the best friends discover that reading isn't so terrible, after all. Liberal doses of humor make this book a delight, and the main characters' involvement in the story may inspire many readers to check out the original novel on their own. A word to fellow librarians: be sure you have a copy or two of Dracula on hand. This series is a winner in my book (excuse the pun).
This book was really interesting and there wasn't a boring part at all! It was really fun and you learned alot about the classic story about Dracula...I mean CRAKED CLASSIC!
