With an addict mother and deadbeat dad, Shelby truly hopes that blood does not define her. She discovers a passion for photography, hoping to make something of herself through art. But when her mother dies of an overdose, Shelby finds herself in a dark place. Taken in by her aunt, she rebels in school and turns away from everyone, except a mysterious classmate named Brandt. Shelby doesn’t realize that Brandt is a vampire—until it’s too late. Overwhelmed by new cravings for blood, Shelby must decide whether to abandon her values to satisfy her hunger—or fight for the life she’s always wanted.
