The Coldest Girl in Coldtown

By Holly Black

a pale hand dangles with the book title on it

 

In 'Coldest Girl...,' Holly Black has created a vivid world that's not too different than ours -- except that everyone knows the truth that vampires exist. When parents are absent, teenagers have "sundown parties" where no one can leave, and they've shut the doors and windows and warded off the vampires for the night. Except somehow, the vampires got in while Tana was passed out in the bathtub at the party -- and she's one of the only people left alive. This story heads off to danger at a breakneck pace, with a main character who is both snarky, and vulnerable. Highly recommended for anyone who likes great worldbuilding, and vampires.
