Synopsis (from barnesandnoble.com): Bianca wants to escape. At the eerily Gothic Evernight Academy, the other students are sleek, smart, and almost predatory. Bianca knows she doesn't fit in.When she meets handsome, brooding Lucas, he warns her to be careful—even when it comes to caring about him. But the connection between them can't be denied. Bianca will risk anything to be with Lucas, but dark secrets are fated to tear them apart . . . and to make Bianca question everything she's ever believed.
So, what do I think?
Overall: I really enjoyed his book. At first, I was thinking it was going to be like all of the other Vampire books I have read, but after about 100 pages in, I realized I couldn't put it down. It was nothing like the typical Vampire book out there. It had a twist that you will have to read to find out.
Characters: I thought all of the characters were well thought out and memorable. Bianca feels like she doesn't belong with the cool crowd, but isn't a big loser like some of the others. The love that Bianca feels towards Lucas does not feel fake or immature. Everyone always remembrs their first love, so it's nice to get that feeling from the book.
Setting: I feel that Gray did an excellent job of describing Evernight Academy. I could see the laout in my head and knew where the characters were in the building. I like how the stain glass windows were described.
Googie's Grade: 4.5 out of 5 stars!!!
