Sixteen-year-old Raven Madison started her obsession with the dark side in kindergarten. While the teacher was asking her young students what they wanted to be when they grew up and getting the typical responses of nurse, fire fighter, and football player, young Raven answered the question the only way she knew how--she wanted to grow up to be a vampire.

Raven's parents, Sarah and Paul, were typical hippies who spent their early years together waxing poetic about love and the music of the Grateful Dead. When Raven came along, they became slightly less hippie, in that they moved into an apartment instead of living in their Volkswagon van. Raven's first years were spent surrounded by lava lamps and glow-in-the-dark posters, with her parents playing games with her, eating junk food, and watching old horror films on the small black and white television. All of that changed, though, when two things happened--her mother dared to give birth to a brother, endearingly termed Nerd Boy, and they forced her to go to school, every day.

Now sixteen, Raven is still the outcast that she found herself to be when she proclaimed her life's ambition was to be a vampire. Now the only goth girl in a town dubbed Dullsville, Raven is still a social outcast who enjoys horror movies, black lipstick, and pushing her parents to the edge. Raven has no real friends except for Becky, a timid farm girl who lives on the wrong side of the tracks. None, that is, until the Sterling family moves into the dark, abandoned mansion sitting on top of Benson Hill.

Suddenly the whole town is talking about the mysterious Sterlings, especially the teenage son, Alexander. It's said he hangs out in the cemetery at night, that he's brought bats to town, that he's pale and is never seen outside during the daytime. Could Alexander be a real, live vampire? If so, he could be Raven's ticket out of this loser town. But does she really want to leave her family and real life behind to spend her days sleeping in a coffin? Or is all the hype just that--the ramblings and crazy speculation of a town who can't stand for anyone to be different?

As Raven gets closer to Alexander, she realizes that being a vampire might not matter so much as being loved for who she is. As she deals with the small-minded people in her town, she just might find out that she's not so different from the residents of Dullsville as she thought she was.

VAMPIRE KISSES is a good start to this entertaining vampire series by Ellen Schreiber. Although there are parts that appear too shallow for Raven's character, and way too many exclamation points for my taste, I still recommend the story, and look forward to reading the next book in the series, KISSING COFFINS.

I really love this book. It could easily be my favorite and I haven't had one since I was like 5 because I read so much. Alexander Sterling is so cool adn Raven is just so lucky. I really like the character Raven, although I'm not so sure about the name. I love the way she thinks, everything. Add in Alexander and it's just too perfect for words.

Oh wow! The way Ellen describes Alexander in the story... he is one freaking sexy vampire. He may be gothic but he sounds; romantic, hot, sweet, and a total vampire! I think it is so cute the whole relationship between Raven and Alexander. They love eachother!!!! I am so glad she is not into that jerk Trever! ugh! When i read this book i couldn't help but wish i was Raven! Hello she gets Alexander! Who wouldn't want a super hot vampire lover?? I can't wait to see what happens in the 3-5 books!

Vampire Kisses Have you ever wanted to be a vampire? Vampire Kisses is a great book in my opinion and is great for ages eleven through fifteen. It is also great for people who love a good book about mysteries and romance. The book is about a 16-year old, teenage girl, Raven who has longed to be a vampire ever since kindergarten. A so called haunted mansion on Benson Hill has had boards up for years and now there is a new family in town, who are a little creepy. Raven wonders who they are or rather what are they? Had the rumors around town been true are the people in the mansion, vampires? Rumors spread that the family was weird, they didn¿t eat garlic, and they were only seen at night. Raven wanted to meet the strange family, especially the handsome 17-year old, dark son, Alexander Sterling. In a little town Raven calls ¿Dulsville¿, where she still wanted to be vampire and stands out at school among the soccer jocks with her unique style of black clothes, black nail polish, black lipstick, and her obsession with Anne Rice. Raven has surprising acts in every chapter that the readers will love. She ends up dressing preppy for Halloween instead of something she usually wears. She has to take a part time job where her boss says she can¿t wear black, but must wear red or pink, any shade as long as it is red or pink. Besides being the only gothic girl in school Raven has a normal life. She has a best friend named Becky, a little brother who she calls ¿nerd boy¿, and a vampire boyfriend. It can¿t get much better than that. She puts up with the jocks at school, goes to the mansion now and again to see Andrew, and all is well¿ until the school winter ball. What will happen next? You¿ll have to read the book.

I think the author did an excellent job at writing this book. I wasn’t very interested in the book at the beginning, but as I read the book a bit more, I became fascinated with it. Vampire Kisses is about a 16-year-old girl named Raven Madison who is a goth misfit in her brightly colored town. When an old abandoned mansion finally gets new residents, the rumors start to spread. Everyone in the small town Raven refers to as “Dullsville” believes that the new neighbors are actually secret bloodthirsty vampires. Even Raven, who, has always loved vampires since she was little, believes the rumors. But one day, she encounters the attractive yet mysterious Alexander Sterling that lives in the mansion, and feels like he is the only person that actually understands her. The two slowly fall in love, but still the question remains; are the Sterlings really vampires? It's a really cute book, some may enjoy it while others might not. It really all depends like if you love vampire romances this book is for you. The story is somewhat llike twilight without the whole "werewolf" thing. Some people like the main character Raven and some don't-that's okay. I felt that Raven is sort of a perky goth if you know what I mean, but I like her personality and the fact that she doesn't care what people think. However, the story is pretty slow/predictable for most and sice I'm having to do a book report on it, its pretty hrd to tell what the main conflict of the story is. The ending is a heart breaking cliffhanger too, and although you might not like this book when you read the others in the series the story is a whole lot better. I recommend this for the ages of 11-15/16 It was a fast-read but still pretty good :-)

This story's not worth a lot of words. Raven is an annoying, shallow, and predictable character who falls in love with this Alex vampire thing in all of 3 pages. Their relationship has no depth. It's ridiculous, and horrendous to the point that it would be funny, were it not so sad. Seriously, from the bottom of my heart, I beg you not to continue this plague by giving this author anymore money than she's already, miraculously gotten.

this was a quick read, yet a little immature, the romance just isnt there, I would suggest to girls of the age of 12 and 13, please dont waste ur money as I have, its really not that great, the plots are immature and quickly resolved, there is nothing dark or sexy in this series, all you get are stolen kisses, nothing beyond that

This book had me LOLing. A lot. Raven is a goth misfit in a white bread town. She is also obsessed with vampires. When the town mansion gets new residents the rumor mill starts flowing. Everyone thinks the new neighbors are vampires. Even Raven. When she finally meets the hunky and mysterious Alexander from the mansion she knows he is the one, someone that can understand her. The only question is.is he or isn't he a vampire? What a super cute book. Truly. It's fast paced and had me flipping till the very end. I thought the plot was fun and very original. I mean here is a town that is whispering and gossiping about neighbors being vampires. It was really comical, but not over the top silly. I just loved Raven. She would probably kill me if she knew I said this, but I think she is sweet, kind and has a huge heart. Her friendship with Becky is proof. She also has a playful sense of humor. I like the way she thinks. I also thought her relationship with her parents and brother were real. They were honest with each other. Alexander makes a good heart throb. Though, I felt we really didn't get to know him in this book. I also thought their relationship was too quick, especially for the emotions they had. I wasn't buying it. Then again I am not sixteen and in love with a vampire. I found the cast of supporting characters amusing. From mean bully Trevor to Creepy man to Ruby from the travel agency. They add the flare. I give this book 3 STACKS STACKGirls Stacy - suddenly wants to watch "Kissing Coffins".

Goth girl Raven is an outscaste. A "goth". She doesn't fit in the town she calls "DullsVille". She has an obssession with vampires that no one understands. But; when a new family moves into the creepy house on a hill. Raven wonders who these peopl are and she's on a quest to find out the answer to her qustion. Who are these mysterious pale white people? Why have they left the house in th same condition? How are they allergic to garliC? Why are they only seen at night? But Raven finds that when she figures out the answers to her quetion. She might hurt someone she deeply loves. This book is funny, romantic, and highly recomend it.

I got this book from the library the other day and decided to read it. I want to write my own books and wanted to see what kind of books are popular among teens. I got hooked right away. I couldn't stop laughing. I think this is a great book because it doesn't have vulgarity like most young adult books have nowadays. I really enjoyed it from the first page all the way to the ending. The main character is very likeable. She was the funniest. I also loved the dialogue spoken between her and Trevor. Very natural. I highly recommend it. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

It's kinds wierd cause in the beginning it shows you a little of her past and doesn't start on the present until around page 30. The main character is really wierd. She wants to be a vampire and expects to become one with Alexander. Alexander was by far my favorite character, he was mysterious and kept to himself yet he is one of those characters you can't help loveing. These vampires are also a little more traditional like no sun light and no garlic, so if you are really use to Edward then you might not like it.

Not really well written.

I've seen a lot of mixed feelings about this serious, but I honestly don't care. I love these vampire books. They give me passion and romance and anyone who doesn't like it doesn't need to read it. Or maybe you should since you obviously haven't read enough.

This book is really pretty good, I like the humor in it especially. I feel like this is a good book for younger folks too. The author is good at making the main character likable. A lot of fiction for the younger generation have annoying unrelatable characters. But Raven is not so. I won't give away the plot as so many others have but try it before you knock it. You just might like the easy read.
