At lot of reviews have touched on how hypocritical Zoey is and how problematic the book is. This review is going to touch on topics I am not seeing discussed. Background: i did read this book and a few in the series when I was in 8th grade. I came across it and decided to reread it.
A lot of the character descriptions are bad and offensive at times.
1) Grandma Redbird is a cop out. A way for them to use a bastardization of Cherokee culture on a white character and make it make sense. There isn't a description of Grandma Redbird skin tone or facial features unless it's to talk about how pretty Zoey is. And even then you get a sense that they just don't know how to describe someone of Native American descent.
2) The black characters description. Now, this isn't necessarily a problem that is limited to this author but here we are. There are two black girl in the book and one mixed girl. For whatever reason the only way to describe black skin is 'coffee' or 'cappuccino but the nice quality kind'(quote). Then we get to the mixed girl: 'coffee-with-lots-of-cream skin' (actual quote including the dashes). The full back girl is called an 'African Princess' which may not seem bad to you but it is. Everytime white people want to give a condescending compliment it tends to be African princess. Whenever black women are fetishized, which is often, it's always African princess. The fact that in order to make the black woman positive in the story you have to call her and African princess is ridiculous. My point is the lack of good creative imagery for black characters is sad.
Then we get to the worst of it: Hair. She talks about how everyone has long hair. Then we get to the other black girl and 'must be a really good weave'(quote). Then we get to the mixed girl 'excellent hair that would never nap up' (quote). Disgusting. I don't think I need to explain the connotations this implies about black hair. Everyone in the story we find out has long hair because being a vampire makes your hair grow, whatever. It annoys me that the black girls grew long wavy white girl hair instead of beautiful gravity-defying afros. Except the mixed girl because she had perfect curly hair that wasn't nappy. I'd rather there be no diversity in your book then right stereotypical and offense things about black characters because you don't know how to write them.

3) despite all this I finished the book and it was trash. No wonder I didn't finish the series when I was younger. I really don't remember it either. How does it take two people to write something so bad? The imagery and dialogue was horrible. Zoey acted like a 10 yo. The book almost seemed like an intro chapter because there really wasn't any conflict or climax or conclusion. There really wasn't a story.
I think if you're young and remember the atrocities of what could be your high school experience AND you throw in vampires as a part of society... you will probably like this story.

Basically, we have an intelligent girl (Zoey) who is in high school in Tulsa, OK. Her home life is miserable because:
(A) her father abandoned her mom, older sister and younger brother fourteen years ago;
(B) her mom remarried a church-going hypocrite who made life easier for only her mother who now has one goal --- keep the jerk stepfather happy at the expense of each kids' happiness and sanity;
(C) she had a boyfriend, a football player who recently has begun to drink A LOT! She has a bff that she's been close to since the third grade. She considers her friends and school her true family and has one goal. Get out and go to get school.
(D) finally, Zoey has a beloved Indian grandmother who lives outside of Tulsa on her lavender farm. This woman adores her granddaughter and throughout Zoey's life has showered her with love and knowledge of the old ways that's been passed down through her he ages.

This world knows of vampires and is aware that many celebrities are talented vampires. Children grow up aware in the knowledge that perhaps one day a vampire may appear and "mark" the child with the outline of a blue crescent ???? mark or tattoo. Upon this occurring these people have less than a day to report to the nearest vampire school.

Eventually, these kids will make a full change into a vampire... or, not. If not, they die.

Well, Zoey was marked and it was her grandmother who brought her to this new school of vampires in-training. So, regardless of the fact that Zoey has been marked she has to relearn the in's and out's of a vampire version of high school. Unfortunately her parents as well as her bff saw her mark and took a giant leap backwards wanting nothing to do with the girl.

Naturally, there is intrigue going on with our girl at the school. Who is good? bad? ...and, who is truly wicked? There is wit, humor and the stereotypical high school meanies. I recommend it as a light read that will occasionally make you ???? LOL.

I read it about ten years ago and enjoyed it enough to read the series. To be honest, I cannot recall if I finished the (entire) series because the authors were then in the process of writing the following books in the set. I remember waiting a couple of times for the next book(s). So, this morning I saw the authors name and decided to reread the series.

I know I liked them the first time around and hope that I enjoy them again. In either case, ???? I will add to this review upon completion.
I thought that this book would be interesting. Definitely, at the beginning of the chapters it seemed to be building characters and plot, although it was very slow. Certain scenes in the book were stretchy. However the female main character Zoey, there is something about her that I dislike I could not connect. I had to skip some of her dialogues because they were predictable. To be fair in order to have more of an idea of her personality probably I should read the second book but i am not that fond of the book and do not want to waste money and time reading something that it will not work for me. The three stars given it is for the uniqueness of the plot, and creativity. I do not believe will continue with this series I do not want to be disappointed. I thought that two author writers for this book would be a good read but i was very wrong.
I have read this series House of Night by P.C. Cast before many years ago. I have decided to read them again because I love the story! Even though these are geared more for teens/young adults I love them. They are an easy read but yet even for me a Grandma I still love the fantasy of the books!
