Reviewer: Faheem, age 13, Maple Grove
Beware- it is chilling/freaky/wonderful/and graphic!!!!!!!!! Very good! It is about Darren a boy obsessed with spiders, and steals one from a vampire, who's part of a freak show. He shows the spider to his best friend and his friend is bit. In order to save his friend from a slow painful death, Darren has to make a bargain with the vampire- let his friend die, or become the vampire's assistant. I could NOT put this book down and read it in a day!!!
