Genuinely gripping: a brilliantly original tale written in a completely believable adolescent voice.' -- Kirkus Review
At an exclusive girls' boarding school, a sixteen-year-old girl records her most intimate thoughts in a diary. The object of her growing obsession is her roommate, Lucy Blake, and Lucy's friendship with their new and disturbing classmate. Ernessa is a mysterious, moody presence with pale skin and hypnotic eyes.
Around her swirl dark rumours, suspicions, and secrets as well as a series of ominous disasters. As fear spreads through the school, fantasy and reality mingle. What is true and what is dreamed bleed together into a waking nightmare of gothic menace, fuelled by the anxieties, lusts, and fears of adolescence.
And at the centre of the diary is the question that haunts all who read it: Is Ernessa really a vampire? Or has the narrator trapped herself in her own fevered imagination?
Very enjoyable book, different interpretation of a vampire story and thankfully avoids getting sleazy.Published 10 months ago by Amazon Customer
