Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Melissa Roanhorse is having a tough day. Her mother has a drinking problem, her fish keep dying, and she has to contend with the everyday pressures of being a high school sophomore which, by themselves, are enough to keep most of us from remembering those teenage years too nostalgically. So when Falke, an ancient vampire who's been sleeping off a coma for the last hundred-odd years, shows up offering immortality and a ticket out of Albuquerque, there‘s no wonder that Melissa takes the offer and runs. What's a little blood-sucking compared to algebra?
