Infinite Days By Rebecca Maizel

Copied from Goodreads:
Lenah Beaudonte is, in many ways, your average teen: the new girl at Wickham Boarding School, she struggles to fit in enough to survive and stand out enough to catch the eye of the golden-boy lacrosse captain. But Lenah also just happens to be a recovering five-hundred-year-old vampire queen. After centuries of terrorizing Europe, Lenah is able to realize the dream all vampires have -- to be human again. After performing a dangerous ritual to restore her humanity, Lenah entered a century-long hibernation, leaving behind the wicked coven she ruled over and the eternal love who has helped grant her deep-seated wish.

Until, that is, Lenah draws her first natural breath in centuries at Wickham and rediscovers a human life that bears little resemblance to the one she had known. As if suddenly becoming a teenager weren’t stressful enough, each passing hour brings Lenah closer to the moment when her abandoned coven will open the crypt where she should be sleeping and find her gone. As her borrowed days slip by, Lenah resolves to live her newfound life as fully as she can. But, to do so, she must answer ominous questions: Can an ex-vampire survive in an alien time and place? What can Lenah do to protect her new friends from the bloodthirsty menace about to descend upon them? And how is she ever going to pass her biology midterm?

I can only describe this book as a vicious whirlwind. It was all over the place and I was constantly at the edge of my seat. Lenah never did as I expected. I thought that she going to be a loner and hang by herself, but she made a friend the first day.
Tony, the aforementioned friend was so sweet and an artist. I thought and really hoped that she would pick him, instead of Justin, but Lenah was unpredictable and I adored her. I loved that even though she was a human, she still kept a few of her vampire tendencies. I loved Tony, too. I liked that he was the first to approach her and was her friend until the end. I didn't like Justin because of how he treated her in the beginning, but he grew on me. As much without spoilers as I can, I will tell you that the ending is surprising and will leave your mouth hanging open. BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging.

I was definitely rooting for Tony too, and found Justin to be a fairly superficial chararcter compared to all the other characters in the book. I did enjoy the sotry and am anxious to read the next one. Thanks for the review

Thanks for the review and the heads up on the surprising ending.

Also, I dont know if it is something with my browswer, but the last few times I have visited, there is a distracting issue with the bottom scroll bar.
