I absolutely tore through this sweet paranormal story of friendship. When Bella moves to Shiver-by-the-Sea with her mom, she meets Cooper and his dog Casper. The two of them soon come across a cute little bat in the theater that Bella's mom has just bought, and are shocked to discover that it's actually a young vampire named Bram! The adventure to get Bram back to his mom and dad will pull in any young kid this Halloween season! 10 out of 10 would recommend!
