What other readers are saying about this title:
Let the Right One In is the opposite of Twilight, darker, deeper, yet more complex. There is more to it than, "Oh, hot vampire, I love you". Set in Blackeberg, Sweden in the winter of the 1980's, it tells the story of Oskar, a bullied 12-year-old boy. When a strange girl moves next door, Oskar befriends her. She only comes out at night and smells terrible. She is not cold in the winter, only wearing a thin pink sweater and has never seen a Rubik's Cube, yet can solve it. Mysterious events unfold with the arrival of the girl, like the bloodless corpse of a young boy hanging upside down in a tree. Not only that, Oskar and Eli develop feelings for each other, both of them not knowing where it will go and "going steady". There are also issues of the real world, such as murder, prostitution, and pedophilia. I would recommend this if you can stand reading about these crimes.
