Welcome to Nightshade, California—a small town full of secrets. It’s home to the pyschic Giordano sisters, who have a way of getting mixed up in mysteries. During their investigations, they run across everything from pom-pom-shaking vampires to shape-shifting boyfriends to a clue-spewing jukebox. With their psychic powers and some sisterly support, they can crack any case!

Teenage girls are being mysteriously attacked all over town, including at Nightshade High School, where Daisy Giordano is a junior. When Daisy discovers that a vampire may be the culprit, she can’t help but suspect head cheerleader Samantha Devereaux, who returned from summer break with a new “look.” Samantha appears a little . . . well, dead, and all the most popular kids at school are copying her style.

Is looking dead just another fashion trend for Samantha, or is there something more sinister going on? To find out, Daisy joins the cheerleading squad.

                  This is a book for those of you who like paranormal/weird/sweet romance/appropriate/no cursing/mystery all in one book series. It's perfect for anyone who wants to read something romantic and scary all at once. The main character Daisy is someone everyone would want to be friends with. I think that everyone has a little bit of Daisy in them, whether they realize it or not. I think everyone wants to go on some sort of adventure, or solve a mystery, and Daisy does just that, giving you that feeling of "I want to do that" or just feeling content reading the book. Either way it's perfect for everyone! At the end of each book It leaves you wanting more, thankfully there's a lot in the series. THANK YOU! Marlene Perez for the perfect teen/preteen series!!
