At first, all goes well when Cynda visits her father and stepmother at their bed-and-breakfast in a remote area on the Maine coast. Her five-year-old half-brother is becoming a friend, and a neighbor boy offers romance potential. But when reclusive author Vincent Morthanos shows up for an extended stay, everything fades in contrast to his compelling presence. Vincent knows just how to prey on Cynda's adolescent need for recognition and she thrives on his attention. A straightforward vampire tale at first glance, Look for Me By Moonlight goes beyond standard teenage horror fare with its dark undertones, and a subtle message of evil seduction that repels even while it entices. (Ages 13 - 15)
