Blue Bloods - Melissa de la Cruz

Blue Bloods (Blue Bloods, Book 1)
Blue Bloods Book 1
Within New York City’s most elite families, there lurks a secret society of celebrated Americans whose ancestors sailed on the Mayflower. They are the powerful and the wealthy—and in fact, they are not human. They are the Blue Bloods, an ancient group of vampires.
Schuyler Van Alen has never fit in at Duchesne, her prestigious New York City private school. She prefers baggy, vintage clothes instead of the Prada and pearls worn by her classmates, and she lives with her reclusive grandmother in a dilapidated mansion. Schuyler is a loner—and happy that way.
But when she turns fifteen, Schuyler’s life changes dramatically. She has a mosaic of blue veins on her arms, and craves raw meat. The death of a popular girl from Duchesne is surrounded by a mystery that haunts her. And strangest off all, Jack Force, the most popular boy in school, is showing a sudden interest in her.
Schuyler wants to find out the secrets the Blue Bloods are keeping. But is she herself in danger?

I don't think there is a better word for this book than "fresh". It was so refreshing reading about clothes and the fashion elite for a while. I love Blue Bloods world. I would love to be a vampire like that! I also love her writing. The fact that each chapter is extremely short and shows a specific scene is so captivating. The chapters are so fast read that you never seem to stop.

The characters are interesting. I still don't know any of them very well, this is the first book though. You seem to have the feeling that you suspect everyone has secrets so it works with the plot. She could not have ended the story any better. That was my favorite part-the last scene.

I am not a big fan of the cover, I think it could have been so much prettier or dark or mysterious but it does match the story. At any rate I read the first chapter of the next book -it was at the end of my book- and I am so desperate to start reading the next one that I will stop writing this review NOW! Great Book!
