Synopsis

Little Dead Riding Hood by Amie Borst, Bethanie Borst

Nominated for: 2014 Cybils Award, Elementary/Middle-Grade Speculative Fiction When you're the new kid at school, you know things are going to suck; but when you're the new kid and a vampire, it bites. Unlike most kids, Scarlet Small's problems go far beyond just trying to fit in. She would settle for a normal life, but being a 12-year-old vampire for an entire century is a real pain in the neck. Plus, her appetite for security guards, house pets, and tomato juice is out of control. In order to keep their vampire-secret, Scarlet's parents resort to yet another move. At her new school, Scarlet not only has a strange skeleton-girl as a classmate, but a smelly werewolf is intent on revealing her secret. When Scarlet meets Granny-who fills her with cookies, goodies, and treats, and seems to understand her more than anyone-she's sure things will finally be different. But with a fork-stabbing incident, a cherry pie massacre, and a town full of crazy people, Scarlet's positive she'll never live to see another undead day.
