Claire Hart is just a normal 16 year old girl. She has very overprotective parents because of something that happened to her older sister. Her favorite books are the Twilight series, so she's beyond thrilled when Darlene and Roger, some of her parents friends want to take her to Seattle. The only way they will agree is if Claire's older sister, Cassidy goes as well, Clair quickly gets over the fact that her parents have basically invited Cassidy along. It's SEATTLE, after all! The whole reason that Darlene wants Claire to go to Seattle is so that the kids of some of their friends would have someone to hang out with. That is kind of a red flag for Claire about those kids, but she's pleasantly surprised when she meets Tony and his sister Nora. But it seems as though they have a secret and Claire is certain that she knows exactly what it is. They do live in Seattle, and of course, so does Edward and his family. Not to mention Tony is hot enough to be a vampire! Cassidy is sure that her sister's crazy, so Claire produces the Twilight books for her to read and she's immediately hooked, although skeptical about Tony being a vampire. This book was hilarious! Claire gets herself into so much trouble, because of her belief in vampires and werewolves and believing that she knows people who are those things. I love how Claire is so naive in the beginning, and how she kind of grows up to the point where she cares more about the people around her than she cares about herself. This is the second book in The Jane Austen Diaries series by Jenni James. You definitely want to read the first one Pride and Popularity, just because of pure awesomeness, but I'm not sure that you have to read these ones in order if you don't want to or happen not to. I happened to meet Jenni James at a book signing a few weeks ago, she's super nice and her books are amazing!
