In this third installment of the Vampire Island series, oldest sister Lexie Livingstone takes on ninth-grade politics?and Old World pixies! As the first vampire ever to run for class president, Lexie has a chance to shed her otherworldly image and get in with the in-crowd. If only it weren?t for those annoying pixies! Blix and Mitzi are the Livingstones? houseguests, and they?re wreaking havoc. Meanwhile, siblings Maddy and Hudson are having some problems of their own. There?s never a dull moment in the lives of these vegetarian vampires!
Being a vegan vampire with no social graces hasn’t exactly made Maddy popular with other eleven-yearolds. But the day she befriends Dakota Underhill changes everything, even if Dakota only promises to be her friend for . . . well, for that day. Because when the leader of the Knavehearts – the most vicious of the Old World vampires – comes to town, Maddy realizes she’s going to need help. She’s not strong enough to face the villain alone, and there’s something special about Dakota that might make her the perfect person to team up with. . . .
From a National Book Award finalist comes a lively new spin on the classic vampire tale. When old-world dangers threaten a race of fruit bat hybrids, where can they run to? New York City, of course! And that?s where we meet the Livingstone kids?Lexie, Hudson, and Maddy?trying to blend their ?vampireness? with the regular people of the city. Unfortunately, their vampire traits keep complicating things. Lexie?s super speed, amazing strength, and poetry-quoting habit embarrass her in front of classmates?and her secret crush. Hudson can fly and is determined to save the planet, but with a vocabulary from the wrong century, he doesn?t quite fit in. And then there?s Maddy, who has a hard time sticking to her vegetarian diet, and an even harder time convincing her siblings that their new neighbors are vampires. With all these challenges, will Lexie, Hudson, and Maddy ever be able to navigate the normal world?
