Description:
Oskar and Eli. In very different ways, they were both victims. Which is why, against the odds, they became friends. And how they came to depend on one another, for life itself. Oskar is a 12 year old boy living with his mother on a dreary housing estate at the city's edge. He dreams about his absentee father, gets bullied at school, and wets himself when he's frightened. Eli is the young girl who moves in next door. She doesn't go to school and never leaves the flat by day. She is a 200 year old vampire, forever frozen in childhood, and condemned to live on a diet of fresh blood. John Ajvide Lindqvist's novel is a unique and brilliant fusion of social novel and vampire legend, a deeply moving fable about rejection, friendship and loyalty.

What the papers say:
'A whiff of the new Stephen King. Don't miss it' The Times. 'A terrifying supernatural story yet also a moving account of friendship and salvation' Guardian. 'Some truly scary bits... will haunt your dreams. Best read by sunlight' Independent on Sunday. 'Lindqvist has reinvented the vampire novel and made it all the more chilling by setting it in the kind of sink estate we all know from the media. Immensely readable and highly disturbing' Daily Express.

Apparently unread. One of the many excellent books that are donated to our village school's community recycling centre in Elmsett, Suffolk. Due to budget cuts, this year, we need to raise funds to refurbish the children's toilets! I usually post books as soon as they are bought.
