The Coldest Girl in Coldtown (Library)
A dark, edgy, wholly original reinvention of the vampire novel from bestselling, acclaimed author Holly Black
Tana lives in a world where walled cities called Coldtowns exist. In them, quarantined monsters and humans mingle in a decadently bloody mix of predator and prey. The only problem is, once you pass through Coldtown's gates, you can never leave.
One morning, after a perfectly ordinary party, Tana wakes up surrounded by corpses. The only other survivors of this massacre are her exasperatingly endearing ex-boyfriend, infected and on the edge, and a mysterious boy burdened with a terrible secret. Shaken and determined, Tana enters a race against the clock to save the three of them the only way she knows how: by going straight to the wicked, opulent heart of Coldtown itself.
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is a wholly original story of rage and revenge, of guilt and horror, and of love and loathing.

About the Author
Christine Lakin is an Earphones Award-winning narrator and acclaimed television actress, best known for her roles as Alicia "Al" Lambert on the hit family comedy Step by Step and as Joan of Arc on Showtime's Reefer Madness.
Plenty of sharply observed characters and situations that feel absurdly, horribly believable. There's dry humor and even a relationship (to call it a romance would be too easy; this is something entirely more complex). Perhaps most unexpectedly, there is no happy ending, just a thread of hope in humanity. You may be ready to put a stake in vampire lit, but read this first: it's dark and dangerous, bloody and brilliant.-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"
