This has 5 more books in this series. The next book is Ninth Grade Slays.
I liked the fact that the author didn’t make it like your stereotypical vampire book. She didn’t make him sparkle, which I am grateful for.
I didn’t like how it was kind of easy to guess what happens or who did this. I like more unpredictable books, where you have to think to figure out who did what or what’s going to happen.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
