S.E. Hinton - Hawkes Harbor
Wow, I hate to give away anything but this is the oddest vampire story I've ever read. but good! the ocean tramp travel and friendship and storytelling kell & jamie at the beginning was good, and would have even been good enough for a novel, but then hawkes harbor, and weirdness, and vampire - and then not, and IRA and death and redemption, the end tho happy is still sad. a 7. interesting, excellent character. the setting running from the 50's to the 80's is slightly dated, but doesn't really matter. finding your place, and being happy in it.
