    Lewis Harris has backpacked over 3,000 miles along the Appalachian Trail and hitchhiked to the Arctic Ocean. He's lived in the French Quarter of New Orleans, on a high mountain pass in Wyoming, and aboard a paddleboat on the Mississippi River. He's worked as a massage threrapist, a short-order cook, a room-service waiter, and a janitor. But he's happiest being a writer. He now lives in Florida, and this is his first book. You can visit him online atwww.lewisharrisbooks.com.
    A sixth-grade Goth girl who thinks she’s a vampire encounters her greatest nemesis when she enrolls at Sunny Hill Middle School in this hilarious and entirely original take on the vampire genre for middle graders.

    Svetlana Grimm has recently discovered she’s a vampire. The clues are all there: she can eat only red foods, has to sleep under the bed because of her heightened sensitivity to light and noise, and can read others’ thoughts. But this new discovery is making her transition from home-schooling to attending sixth grade at Sunny Hill Middle School that much more difficult. After all, what can she possibly have in common with those jellybean-eaters in her class? She prefers to watch them from afar in her hidden lair atop the Oak of Doom in her backyard.

    But things get more interesting when Svetlana’s cruel yet beautiful science teacher, Ms. Larch, reads her thoughts. Svetlana is excited to have found another of her kinduntil her new neighbor, The Bone Lady, fills her in on Ms. Larch's true identity and her own. What happens when your sixth-grade science teacher might also be your immortal enemy?
