Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey
Review by Tiffany, Librarian, Rincon Valley
Jessica Packwood is very excited about her senior year of high school. Her excitement is short lived when a new student, Lucius Vladescu, comes into her life posing as a foreign exchange student. Jessica doesn't know much about her birth, only that her parents adopted her from Romania, her birth parents were killed and her birth name is Antanasia. When Lucius calls her by her birth name AND her parents welcome in this strange boy in their home, Jessica is concerned. She soon learns that she is vampire royalty and a pact was made that she would marry Lucius when she turns eighteen. Jessica is appalled and wants nothing to do with the pact, Lucius, or being a vampire. However, Lucius doesn't give up easily and moves in with Jessica and her family. Will Jessica embrace her vampire heritage? Will she honor the pact and marry Lucius? Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side, is funny and romantic. Any Twilight fan will love Beth Fantaskey's story about vampires, teenagers and love.
