Sadie Criswel is a teenage vampire misfit who can’t do anything right. After flunking out of University, where she couldn’t keep up with her vampire peers, she’s persuaded her parents to let her try human high school, where she hopes to better fit in.
Now attending Jefferson High, Sadie makes new friends… and foes. To thwart a new set of mean girls, she accidentally ends up running for Homecoming queen. And though she’s still dating Kade, from University, Jefferson’s resident bad boy catches her eye. But her new school adventure raises more questions about her existence. Why does her science teacher look so much like her vampire boyfriend? Why does her previous vampire teacher follow her to Jefferson High? And why does Harper, her new close friend, seem so familiar yet have so many secrets of her own?
After Pen, a member of the Firsts, reveals important clues about why Sadie is different from other vampires, pieces of the puzzle fall into place. But it’s not until real danger confronts Sadie and Harper that they realize their past and present are tied together, raising the biggest question of all: Who can Sadie trust?
I was SO excited when I saw Alison was releasing the sequel. I fell in love with book one, Caught In Between. My hands were ITCHING to get ahold of a copy.
My husband laughed at me, I looked like I had just won the Olympic Trials.
If you haven't read Caught In Between, then stop reading this NOW and go get a copy here: AMAZON (CAUGHT IN BETWEEN) and then come back.
Now that housekeeping is done, let's get into the fun stuff. Book two starts off with Sadie's first day in human school. It is tough enough to start a new school, but having to deal with unruly fangs... oh, the joy. Then, the "it" girls go after her... in a "good" way at first, then they turn on her very quickly. For those in school, and those of us who survived it, we ALL know THOSE girls. Everything you do, say or imply gets twisted and turned on you.
Sadie's troubles from her old school prepared her well for dealing with these pests. Her reaction to take them down off their high horses had me waving hands yelling, "preach it, girl!"
Alison did a wonderful job of weaving the story lines and integrating new twists into the plot. Pen makes a return and drops some serious cliffhanger clues that left Sadie (and me) frustrated and nervous. She was so cryptic.... granted she is a thousands-year-old vampire... but still. Give the girl a break.
