Raven is a goth girl stuck in Dullsville(Her description of her small town- It's bigger than a small cave, but small enough to feel claustrophobic)She's a self imposed outcast with a huge obsession for vampires and the dark side. She hates her school, her parents and her little brother who she calls nerd boy. She has one friend named Becky, a farm girl who she protects from the bullies at school. Raven longs for something exciting to happen in her small town. But Raven should be careful what she wishes for.
The most exciting things to happen in Dullsville in my lifetime in chronological order:
1. The 3:10 train jumped it's tracks, spilling boxes of tootsie rolls, which we devoured.
2. A senior flushed a cherry bomb down the toilet, exploding the sewage line, closing school for a week.
3. On my sixteenth birthday a family rumored to vampires moved into the haunted Mansion on top of Benson Hill.
I would recommend this book for readers 12 and older. This is the first book in a series. It is available for check out at the Salmon Public Library.
