  • Review | Blood Diaries: Tales of a 6th-Grade Vampire

Hott Synopsis:

We’ve heard it said a million times – nothing is harder than middle-school.

But what if you were in middle-school and had a secret? A big secret. A secret that could change life as we know it.

Edgar Stoker is such a person. He’s a vampire who has chosen to go through middle-school. CHOSEN! Who would do that?!?! His family thinks that’s bad enough but Edgar goes even further he makes friends with… humans! Imagine!

His parents have decided to overlook his lapse in judgement on these decisions but when Edgar accidentally lets out THE SECRET there will be consequences.

Hott Review:

When I was offered this book for review I jumped on it but when it came in the mail and I saw the cover I cringed. It just looked like another one of those “vampire” books – or even worse “wimpy kid” books. UGH!

Boy was I wrong! I may have sat down to read this reluctantly but once I started I could NOT put it down. It’s so much fun! It accurately portrays the life of a middle-schooler with a devastating secret (which we all have). This book takes pre-teens through the ever changing idiocy that is peer pressure, fitting-in, and making friends.

A great book – that I’m insisting my kids read!

Who is Marissa Moss anyway?

I’ve been making children’s books for a looooong time. I sent my first picture book to publishers when I was nine, but it wasn’t very good and they didn’t publish it. I didn’t try again until I was a grown-up and then it took five years of sending out stories, getting them rejected, revising them and sending them back over and over until I got my first book. Now I’ve published more than forty books and each new one is still hard in its own way. Each one takes a lot of revising because I never get things right the first time. That used to frustrate me. Now I expect it. And I don’t mind, because that gives me permission to make mistakes. It means I can take risks and try new things because I don’t have to be perfect – I can always make changes.
