Erin Misrahe is a sixteen-year-old girl who would love to be normal. In times of stress she has always been overcome by her alter ego, Shevaun, whose violent behaviour wreaks havoc on those around her. Erin can never remember anything about these 'episodes' but remembers all the therapy, hospital visits and medication she has to take.

Then an old friend comes into her life and tells her about a world that she knows can not be true. Shevaun is a vampire who really exists and there are people who can shape-shift? Erin has to wonder if she has taken her medication or if she is having another episode. Will the connection be severed so that Erin can go on to lead a normal life? Or has her life been changed forever?

Amelia Atwater-Rhodes is an extraordinary writer and I enjoy her books every time and this newest book was no exception. With real life problems mixed in with the paranormal this book could be enjoyed by both teenagers and adults. The story flows and keeps you guessing all the way till the end which leaves you wanting more. Informative, interesting and insightful this is surely a work of fiction but the author could have you believe that everything in her books is indeed true.

This sounds terrific. I've heard of her writing but never had the pleasure. Great review.
