iDrakula | by Bekka Black

iDrakula by Bekka Black
(Sourcebooks Fire, 2010, 150 pages)

There was a recent issue of Booklist that had a special section on kid’s horror books.  One that caught my eye was iDrakula.  It is a retelling of the Bram Stoker novel all told through e-mail, text messages, and web sites.  I actually checked it out for my son but it is more of a young adult version – I read it in about an hour but was thoroughly entertained the entire time.  It is a clever little book and funny to think how novels that used letters to tell a story will now have to use the new social media.  How about a whole novel in Tweets!

  1. After reading the review for this one, I got it for my grandaughter, who is a big fan of teen vampire books. She said she really ejoyed it. She liked the format that it was written in. Said it made it very interesting. She would recommend it for the tweens/teens that like these kind of books.
