The Lucy Chronicles: High School Bites, by Liza Conrad (NAL JAM, 2006)

It’s Dracula all over again when Lucy Hellenberg discovers that she’s the descendant of a certain not-so-fictional heroine, and that the master vampire and his descendants have been stalking her family for generations. Luckily, Lucy’s family is very good at fighting vampires, and she’ll have some help from her friends, including the latest in the Van Helsing line, and a vampire expert descended from Bram Stoker. It’s an entertaining update on the Dracula mythos, with some revisionary work done on both Bram Stoker and Dracula, with a healthy dose of Buffyesque attitude thrown in for good measure.
