I recently bought this book and I can’t wait to start reading it. Patrick Jones is the author of The Tear Collector, which was released on September 1, 2009. Sounds like a pretty unique concept.
Synopsis (Book Jacket):
Between hookups, makeups, and breakups, there isn’t a day at Lapeer High School without drama turning to trauma turning to tears.
And tears are just as essential as air for Cassandra Gray. She and her family are vampires who thirst for human sorrow, ans the energy that they soak in from a good crying jag can keep them fueled up for days.
Anytime a friend needs a shoulder to cry on, Cass is there. Anything a boyfriend gets too secure, she breaks his heart. Cass’s work as a school peer counselor and hospital volunteer also provides the perfect cover and access to her family’s energy source. But she is getting tired of all the lies and manipulation-especially now that she’s actually fallen in love with a human. Can she bear to betray her family for a chance at happiness and a life lived with joy?
A perfect blend of romance and the supernatural, this unique kind of vampire story will hook readers.
