Shay could never do the things her friends could--never try out for sports, never go to parties, never fall in love. Because of the mysterious and incurable blood disorder she was born with, she can barely make it through three days of school a week.
But now, her doctor-turned-stepfather has a brand-new treatment that he thinks will change everything. And it does. As soon as the new blood starts pumping into Shay's veins, she has visions of a different life...Gabriel's life. She sees an orphanage, loss, fangs, blood, and lust that she can't explain.
Is Gabriel real? And if he is, could he really be what she thinks he is?

Oooh this book is creepy. Shay uncovers a big family secret that has her on the run…with a vampire.
Okay, sure, it’s campy, but it’s a pretty fun, quick read that’s full of tension and suspense. People who love vampire books will certainly enjoy it, though it wasn’t a "wow" for me.
But let’s move on to the BEST part about this book…it was written by Melinda Metz a.k.a. the creator of Roswell a.k.a. THE BEST SHOW EVER.
You don’t even know. I was obsessed with show as a teenager. Don’t even get me started on how Roswell was everything Twilight is now, just 10 years prior. That’s gonna be a post for another day. Three cheers for Metz!
