Author: Amelia Atwater-Rhodes

After a spooky-good start with her first novel, In The Forests of the Night, Amelia Atwater-Rhodes comes out biting with another vampire tale, Demon in My View. This novel one-ups her first attempt by jumping deeper into the "life" of the deliciously dark vamp Aubrey and spinning in a human factor - which just happens to be a teen author. Hmm... Intrigued? You should be.


Jessica's Secrets

Demon in My View introduces Jessica, a seemingly average teen attending Ramsa High School in Massachusetts. Jessica is considered a freak at school - and that's without anyone knowing that she writes best-selling vampire novels. Being a teen author who dreams, and then writes down, the dark history of vampires is not Jessica's only secret... it's just the only one she knows about. There is something in her family history that only vamps like Aubrey (the demon in her view) know about. But - you guessed it - that'll change...


The Bottom Line

Amelia Atwater Rhodes outdoes fellow vampire writer Anne Rice with this deep, riveting tale that's bound to keep ya flippin' pages until the wee hours of the morning (although you'll most likely be under your bed with a garlic necklace.) You seriously won't be able to put down Demon in My View. And the fact that Amelia Atwater Rhodes is a teen writer herself, can't help but make you wonder how much of Demon in My View is fiction and how much is based on Amelia's real life. SPOOKY!

    • Aubrey is the coolest cuz he's dark and mysterious.
    • I love Risika - she's tough!
    • I prefer the witches, like Caryn.
    • I'll stick with TV vamps like Angel and Spike.

No matter how fancy a school is, there will be behaviour problems. Homework can be left to the last minute depending on how tactile you are, after the first few months you'll want to disappear unless you become popular but hang in there! Also, there are three types of people at Middle School or Secondary School:The cacti-The cacti are people who seem hard on the outside [we all have to be in Middle School] but are really lovely and soft if you get to know them. Some cacti can be pricks [no pun intended] but most are nice enough people so a cacti is probably an ideal friend at Middle School.The rocks-AVOID AT ALL COSTS! These are the people who are completely tough and are often bullies. It often seems like they have no emotions because they don't. They are sociopaths and must be avoided. But they are often popular jock kids.The marshmallows-These guys are pretty good, they're soft all the way through and get along well with most people and mostly abide by the rules. They can be hurt easily and roasted because they're so soft. Marshmallows are often smart and get along well with teachers as a result. The only flaw with marshmallows is that some have the tendency to rub their good grades in your face and make you feel insecure but they're nice people mostly.Oh and we can also get cacti rocks and spiky marshmallows.Hope I helped  Teachers are never the enemy!! They're there to help you. They can be a very valuable resource and it is so very important to collaborate with them to make the most of your learning experience!  If you put off a cold attitude and don't speak to people, they're more than likely going to assume you're stuck up and that can make the experience a lot worse than it has to be. Smile, be kind, and if there's someone picking on you, tell a teacher or other staff member, and try to stay out of their path. (I know from experience being an "outsider", it's better not to make yourself a quiet target). im nervous about starting high school.  middle school was alot of fun but you do get alot of classwork and homework. i couldnt have said it any better like you did kirsteeeen.   [s:p/zxl]

    Doctors might be the more ethical choice, but honestly I think a lot of celebrities do deserve high salaries considering the scrutiny, lack of privacy, and judgement they go through. They're human too, and their lives are turned upside down once they become part of the spotlight.  Both are respectable careers, in their own ways, and I think that certain positions in the medical profession should get a raise.
