Alana Oakley suspects her new neighbors are vampires. Her friends hope Alana is right. Everything they've read about vampires sounds so very cool and the new neighbors are so very hot. Despite her friends' warped sensibilities, Alana is determined to reveal the neighbors' bloody secret. If only her mom would stay out of trouble, Alana would have this mystery in the bag. Hard to know what Alana is dreading more this year: the kiss of immortality from a vampire or her mother throwing her a birthday party, but don't bother asking the woman in Alana's living room...she's already dead.
