What’s worse than falling in love with a straight girl? Falling in love with a straight girl who drinks blood. And not even in a goth way.
High school senior Mindy Murphy, has been questioning her small town life forever and, more recently, her sexuality. Maybe it has something to do with her new friend, Lucia West. When they were kids they used to be besties, until Lucia grew a head taller and a cup size bigger. Now she’s captain of the cheer team, winner of the Boyfriend Olympics, and voted least likely to remember Mindy at their high school reunion.
In short, possibly the worst person alive for Mindy to crush on. Especially after Lucia’s bitten by a vampire. Now the only way to keep her alive is to get her blood, and the only way to cure her is to slay the vampire that turned her.
Mindy the brainy person who has no fashion sense. She has had a crush on her next door neighbor, suddenly Lucia suddenly wants to be her friend. Mindy is not stupid though and wants to know why? Lucia swears she just likes her and invites her to a party .
Lucia started up their friendship on a dare, but when her life gets messed up its Mindy she runs to. Mindy she trusts to help her, and make her feel human even when clearly she’s not anymore. So what do you do when you are a newly created vampire, you drink blood and try not to kill anyone.
Mindy try to find away to change Lucia back, so of course if you kill the vampire who made her she will turn back right? Seems easy enough just find someone who has no reflection and stake them easy peasy. Right, so we go to every adult one at a time and find a way to put a mirror in front of them. . . Not really very practical, when people start showing up dead or in other places they shouldn’t be. The cops come to Mindy house wanting answers.
Mindy has no answers to give them, who will believe her if she says vampires are killing people.
Lucia is fighting a loosing battle, she loves Mindy but vampires are naturally predators, and the one who made her is after Mindy. Lucia will give anything to keep Mindy safe even her life.
Mindy and Lucia are lovers and friends who still believe love can conquer all, will they be able to hold out or Will they be able to protect each other? They are both strong characters with honor and love!
