Rising Tide by Claudette Melanson introduces a teen, Maura - known as Mink to her mother, who wants them to emigrate to Vancouver from Pennsylvania - with skin so pale that sunlight makes her feel unwell (hence at least one reason for the big move north). Her neighbor and frenemy Katie is on the cheerleader squad; Katie's twin brother Trent is on the football team.
Katie's recent attentions towards Maura are odd,
her agenda questionable. Indeed, the brilliance of these opening pages
begs us to question EVERYONE's motives, including Maura's mother Caelyn,
and her rationale for the move to Canada.
This vampire tale is a great opening to a series. It's permanently free here.
