Oh, did I say “average”? I meant anything but. As a vampire princess, Solange must do everything she can to overcome hordes of evil vampires, keep her best friend out of harm’s way, and --- scariest of all --- make sure her math homework’s done on time.
In today's guest blog, Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl discuss their debut work of fiction, BEAUTIFUL CREATURES, and reflect on the ways in which the book was shaped by the teens in their lives.
