Pretty Dead by Francesca Lia Block
A vampire romance set in Los Angeles, complete with a happy ending. Much too romantic for my taste, and a little too much haute couture name-dropping also. It was disappointing, because I'm a fan of Francesca Lia Block's quirky, hipster fairytale style in her Weetzie Bat novels. Pretty Dead is pretty racy in places; Grade 9-12.
