Being the new kid sucks. When you’re a vampire, it bites.
You’ve got to sink your teeth into your problems just to swallow them.
Twelve year old Scarlet Small isn’t great about controlling her appetite. Her constant cravings have made it a real pain in the neck to be a vampire for an entire century. Which means Scarlet and her parents, Mort and Drac, are on the move again.
Things are amiss at Scarlet’s new school. Not only does she have a strange skeleton-girl as a classmate, but a smelly werewolf is intent on revealing her secret. At the school carnival, Scarlet meets Granny, the nice old lady who lives in the forest. But there’s something lurking in the woods and it wants Scarlet dead. For good.
During a visit with Granny, Scarlet is shown the Lake of Dreams where she learns things aren’t always as they seem. Her beloved Granny might be more dangerous than she ever imagined. Scarlet will need to trust her instincts if she wants to save her friends. And herself.
With a rogue bat, a cherry pie massacre, and the looming threat of the Underworld, Scarlet’s O-positive she’ll never live to see another undead day.
