CIRQUE DU FREAK
Boston : Little, Brown, 2001
IL 5-8, RL 7.1
want to run faster than a deer, play soccer better than a pro, have broken
bones mend themselves in a few hours, and meet interesting and amazing
people and things while traveling across the county? Ever want to
live 8 times longer than the average human? Ever want to see a real
wolf man........ rip out your friend's stomach?
Shan didn't want these things in his life, but that's what he got, and
much more! Shan was just a normal kid, sneaking out of the house
in order to have a good time with his "buds." And then they went
to a freak show- Cirque de Freak. It provided more thrills and chills than
bargained for- but even that didn't stop Darren from stealing a vampire's
deadly spider and having to pay for that life changing mistake by becoming
a 1/2 vampire assistant himself!
being a vampire's assistant... You, like David Shan, would have to say
good-bye to your family and friends... FOREVER! Sure, you could run
across the country faster than a car- and bite through metal pipes with
your bare teeth, but your friend would be Evra the snake boy and your mentor,
Mr. Crepsley, is someone you'd like to kill someday -- especially since
you believe he's the one responsible for a slaughterhouse full of bone-dry
this was the last straw- but little does he know of the reeeeeeaaaallll
horror that awaits..... (Da duh duh dum...) (Andi Figart AJFIGART@MSN.COM)
