24. Revelations - Melissa De La Cruz

#3 in the Blue Bloods series
for: young adults
Disney/Hyperion, 2008
paper, $8.99
264 pgs.

Schuyler Van Alen has been forced to leave her home and live with the Force family. Mimi Force hates her and makes her life miserable. Mimi's "twin", Jack, is a hunk and always on Schuyler's mind. The Silver Bloods are still subtly present, and the Blue Bloods are starting to suspect each other. And what on earth is going on with Bliss's blackouts and weird sightings in the mirror?

If you haven't read or heard of these vampire-ish books, you'll have no idea what I'm talking about. This book is certainly a second installment, not to be read without reading the first. It goes by quickly, has quite a bit of eye-rolling (from the reader) going on, but has such a different "take" on vampires that it's interesting to hang on and see what direction de la Cruz plans to take this series. Yup, gotta admit it, I've reserved the next installment, The Van Alen Legacy, at the library.
