Cassandra Llewellyn is just an ordinary freshman girl in Anchorage, . She was, at least, until the new kids, Tanya and Kate, showed up at school. She soon befriends these repelling, yet bewitching sisters, completely unaware that she has just intermixed with two very dangerous creatures, and gets closer and closer to them as the week passes. When a horrible accident endangers her life, her new friends are forced to tell her what they really are and save her in the only way they know how. But how can this newborn vampire survive when she refuses to harm a living creature? Meet the whole Cullen clan from a truly vegetarian vampire's point of view, and how she struggles to keep humans- and animals- from her deadly grasp.
