This 65 page novella is about Jane who lost her brother in a car accident 6 months prior. She stays home most days with her best friend watching vampire movies and tv shows her favorite thing to do since her brother is gone one night she decides to go out and finds Bailey a childhood friend of her brother who she always had a crush on. They begin to see each other and she soon finds out that she has been turned into a vampire by him.
I never felt connected to any of the characters the story was predictable from beginning to end.  Too many references to Twilight and all other movies about vampires were made in the book since the main character was a fan of all of them. The dialog was very juvenile. Though I did not find it very appealing I can see how it could be liked by a much younger audience.

Summary: Ever since Jane Cassidy's big brother was killed in a car accident six months ago, she's been taking solace in watching cheesy vampire movies and yelling at the characters on the screen when they do stupid things. She can't control the tragedy in her own life, but in the movies, the characters can find ways out of the grip of death. 

A chance meeting with Bailey Westfield, her brother's best friend and her childhood crush, catapults her out of her cocoon of grieving. Bailey's kiss makes Jane feel tugged under a rushing waterfall of cold, sweet darkness. She only sees him at night, and she longs to feel his icy fingers trace the outline of her jaw.

Jane doesn't realize that she's been (literally) sucked into the plot of a vampire movie. And she's not so snarky when there are teeth in her own neck.
