Title:  The coldest girl in Coldtown

Author:  Holly Black

Collection:  Teen Books

One morning, after a perfectly ordinary party, Tana wakes up surrounded by corpses. The only other survivors of this massacre are her exasperatingly endearing ex-boyfriend, infected and on the edge, and a mysterious boy burdened with a terrible secret. Shaken and determined, Tana enters a race against the clock to save the three of them the only way she knows how: by going straight to the wicked, opulent heart of Coldtown itself.

Wait!  Before you give up on reading the teen fiction about vampires fearing yet another regurgitation of Twilight, Holly Black’s original story will be worth your time and then some.  Tana is a great new character, the story is well-told and a quick and enjoyable read.  Critically acclaimed and considered one of the best books to be published this year.
