Annotation: Zoe is lonely young girl. Her mother's battle with cancer has taken both parents away from her, as dad spends every moment in the hospital with Zoe's mother. To make matters worse, her best friend Lorraine is moving away. Awash in this anguish, Zoe takes risks with a dangerous new friend; a very lonely vampire named Simon.

"You have to invite me in," he said. "I can't come in unless you ask." He waited for her answer with eyes lowered.
