6th Grade Entry - Blue Bloods

6th graders at WOMS have been invited to post guest entries on my blog for YA books they’ve recently read. This is Taylor’s entry. Thanks, Taylor!

Blue Bloods
Melissa De La Cruz
Hyperion Paperbacks
302 pages

Blue bloods by Melissa De La Cruz is about this girl named Schuyler Van Alen. She lives with her grandma in her imposing French-style palace on the corner of leafy 101st and riverside drive. She lives with her grandma because right after Schuyler was born her mother slipped into a coma and has been in one since. Her dad died before Schuyler was born. When she turned fifteen her life changed forever. Starting with these blue blood vessels appearing, then next Schuyler receives paperwork to join up and be in The Committee which then she finds out everything. She is a blue blood which is an ancient group of Vampires. She then has to find the monster that is killing them of one by one until they are all dead.
Schuyler looks just like her mother expect for the hair. She has blue-black hair, milky white skin and the most vibrant blue eyes. She is short and eats like crazy and never gains an ounce.

What I like best about the book is that Schuyler is just like me. I hardly never gain an ounce when I eat and that she never fits in at school. I also think that it is nice for a change in what we already know about in this case we think that Vampires can never be killed or that the only way to kill them is to cut off their head or stab them in the heart, but in this book the author brings in a new way to kill them. People worldwide also agree with me.

I would recommend this book to people who love Vampire stories. Or cliff-hangers. Or just a plain good mystery and series.
