Beautiful cover aside, Spencer Baum's highly rated teen vampire novel has a lot going for it.

Family, fictional politics, and the promise of becoming a vampire are all weighing heavily on the mind of new girl Nicky Bloom as she navigates the masquerade ball. And you won't believe what happens! Check it out now!

Rating: 4.1 stars over 34 reviews
Description: In a posh suburb of the nation’s capital, at the most exclusive high school in the world, the vampires who secretly run the government have created a game for America’s daughters of privilege. Show up to Homecoming in a black dress and you’ve entered yourself in a contest where the winner becomes a vampire, and the loser becomes the winner’s first victim.
Only the wealthiest, most connected students can hope to win, so when new girl Nicky Bloom wears a black dress to Homecoming, everyone assumes she has a death wish. They don’t know that Nicky has her own agenda. As the dance continues into the night, they will find out that Nicky Bloom is far more than she seems.
Reviews: "You want to read it slowly and savor it, but it is just so good that you'll find yourself racing through it to see what happens next. The Homecoming Masquerade has it all - the pursuit of endless youth, good vs. evil, multi-dimensional characters, and a plot with action that keeps you turning the pages long past bedtime.
Mystery and Fantasy Lovers - Beware. Don't start this book until you have time to finish it. I slept-walked through the last 2 days at work because I had to know how the story ended. Looking forward to the sequel to see what my new friends Nicky and Jill will do next."
