    I only actually read this while crossing out every single line as part of an artwork for Uni - and quite honestly, the book is infinitely better and only marginally less readable with every word covered in black marker. (for example: the words "beauty" and "beautiful" are written (an average of) 1 time every page, not counting other adjectives such as "pretty", "lovely", "perfect" - all referring to vanity, and suggesting that people are utterly worthless without beauty.)

    ***SPOILERS AHEAD FOLKS! SORRY! I COULDN'T HELP IT!*** I'm not sure there are words that describe just how bad this book is. It's just a teenage girl whining about wanting to be beautiful. I can tell you the story if you like so then you don't have to bother putting yourself through the torture. Are you ready? "Girl moves to a new town. Girl starts at the local school.

I can tell you the story if you like so then you don't have to bother putting yourself through the torture. Are you ready? "Girl moves to a new town. Girl starts at the local school. Girl starts to settle in. Girl then finds out that the beautiful people hate her (well not hate, more indifferent). Girl sells their souls to a vampire in exchange for beauty and brains. Girl realises that the people that she stole them from deserve them more than her. Girl gives them back. The End." It's literally just that only with a lot more whining. I'm saving you by telling you that. It took the author 182 pages to write but I did it in a paragraph. That means there's a lot of whiny filler. Not much happens to creep out the reader. The only upside is that because the book is so short there isn't a massive amount of dragging out. I wasn't a fan of the writing, it didn't capture my attention and I was constantly counting how many pages I had left. I felt no sympathy for the MC, Bethany Fountain. She was a really shallow, selfish individual that was more than happy to take what was never hers. She learnt her lesson in the end but I feel that if her mother hadn't been threatened she'd have been more than happy to continue living the lie that she'd created. All of the other characters are just stereotypes and not really worth mentioning. So I don't think I'll bother. Overall this is a very poor excuse for a novel. I don't know how it got published - let alone republished. Actually I know how it got republished, it contains the word vampire. Publishers hear that word and their brains go "ka-ching!" I have nothing positive to say about this book but I refuse to say nothing at all. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, even if they were desperate for a vampire novel. Just walk past this and pretend it doesn't exist.

    I wish I was beautiful. Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful. If I read those words one more time than they appeared in this book, I would have been driven insane. So we have Bethany, with absolutely no redeeming qualities at all. She thinks only of herself; why aren't her brains as good as Laura's? Why can't she look like Grace? She is a pathetic, spineless creature that appreciates absolutely nothing about herself, her life or her family. It is only when she thinks her mum might be getting chomped I wish I was beautiful.

She is a pathetic, spineless creature that appreciates absolutely nothing about herself, her life or her family. It is only when she thinks her mum might be getting chomped on by a vampire, that she works out her wishes are selfish and she is destroying people. I hope there is no redemption for her character; she is worthless by her own admission and I hope it stays that way. Why my library has bought this whole series I'll never know. Don't read it unless you're willing to have a terrible main character, stereotypical jock/prep types, and an utterly boring storyline.

    Intelligent. Compelling. A magnificent novel indeed. Every girl wants to be smart, beautiful and popular, right? And of course, you wouldn't pass up a chance to live your dreams? Even if it meant dealing with some really creepy guy in a cloak that smells like a swamp? Nah, of course not. But of course, beauty comes with a price. And this one is deadly. A definite must-read.

    Formerly published as "The Return of the Vampire". Not good. Probably should never have been repackaged and republished at all. Formerly published as "The Return of the Vampire". Not good. Probably should never have been repackaged and republished at all.

    I liked the other Horror High stories, but I couldn't even finish this one. I found it hard to follow. I liked the other Horror High stories, but I couldn't even finish this one. I found it hard to follow.
