Summary (from goodreads):
Sick of vampires? So is Meena Harper.
But her boss is making her write about them anyway, even though Meena doesn’t believe in them.
Not that Meena isn’t familiar with the supernatural. See, Meena Harper knows how you’re going to die (not that you’re going to believe her; no one ever does).
But not even Meena’s precognition can prepare her for what happens when she meets—then makes the mistake of falling in love with—Lucien Antonescu, a modern-day prince with a bit of a dark side . . . a dark side a lot of people, like an ancient society of vampire-hunters, would prefer to see him dead for.
The problem is, he already is dead. Maybe that’s why he’s the first guy Meena’s ever met that she could see herself having a future with. See, while Meena’s always been able to see everyone else’s future, she’s never been able look into her own.
And while Lucien seems like everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, he might turn out to be more like a nightmare.
Now might be a good time for Meena to start learning to predict her own future . .
This book was so cute and fun to read! I was not really interested because there are vampires and I am so over them…but I read this summary and decided I needed to check it out.
I am really glad I did! It is classic Meg Cabot – fun, light, and funny! There are references to every vampire book that has been big lately and it makes fun of them just like all of us do!
The unique thing about this book is Meena’s power. I would HATE to know how each person is going to die. It is a horrible “power” and she gets so frustrated because she can’t help everyone. It makes her really likable and made me love her. She is overall a great character who loves her family and friends, but she is frustrated with never catching a break. I can relate to that, so it made me like her a little more.
There is nothing earth-shattering in this and it isn’t the best book ever, but if you are looking for a fun bok to read in just a couple days, I highly recommend it!
