The Vampire Stalker by Allison Van Diepen****

The Vampire Stalker is about Amy, a high-schooler who is obsessed with the same books that almost everyone is obsessed with. The stories feel so real, so real that Amy stumbles upon two of the biggest characters in the book. At first Amy thinks that the boy she has encountered is a wannabe Alexander Banks, but then he gives proof. Amy also realizes that the person who attacked her is the vampire that Alexander is hunting, Vigo Skaar. Can Amy and Alex kill Vigo?

I think if the author didn't have Mrs. Super-power librarian, this would've been a better book. Mrs. P, The librarian, studied quantum physics, and has read all the books that Alex comes from... and is an athlete. That is way too much. It drives me crazy when people do this. It's like the librarian runs the world and knows pretty much everything. I did like though, the way some of the characters grow onto you. I think that middle school kids would like this book.
