Starla had always imagined that becoming a vampire would make her popular, glamorous and wealthy. But after she and her best friend, Jordan, become undead, Starla realizes one thing: a vampire’s life sucks. Since there’s no turning back, she tries to make the best of her situation, but it isn’t easy. Especially not after her friend abandons her to serve the oldest, most powerful vampire in the city. Or when she gets on the bad side of a gang of vampires who’ve taken over the zoo. Or when she meets a really cute boy and ends up falling in love, only to find out that there’s a major problem…she’s a vampire, and he’s a vampire killer.
We have all thought about it at one point or another. What exactly would it be like to be a vampire? Humans are curious by nature and so it is only natural to imagine what all the different possibilities would be like. The same thing goes for one of the main characters in Blood Sisters by Michelle Scott. Starla dreams of becoming a vampire, and not just any vampire, but the sexy, rich, and glamorous kind. She wants to feel powerful and wanted, the envy of her classmates. It’s at this point that she talks her best friend Jordan into becoming vampires together. But as the saying goes, ‘Be careful what you wish for.’ Starla soon realizes that being a vampire is not the life she had imagined. She is constantly struggling within herself and with the concept of drinking human blood, especially after Jordan leaves her in hopes of being saved by the oldest known vampire. Blood Sisters is about the strength of friendship and the courage to stand up for what you believe in. This book is a relatively quick read and is a good young adult novel.
