A family of friendly vegetarian vampires stars in this funny story for middle-grade readers.

Being vegan vampires in New York City makes life complicated for siblings Maddy, Lexie and Hudson Livingstone. And this summer, things seem to be taking a turn for the worse for Maddy. She's been having a hard time making friends, and now she might be losing the one she thought was guaranteed-- her sister. Then her brother hears the scary news that the leader of the Knavehearts--the most vicious pureblood vampires--is in town seeking an heir. Could the Knave be after one of the Livingstones? And if it is, will unpopular Maddy be able to find anyone willing to help them face it?

Adele Griffin's follow-up to Vampire Island is a thoroughly entertaining spin on vampire lore that will make readers laugh out loud.
