Perverse, depraved, beautiful. ( )

Angelina Watson leaves home at the age of fifteen, following the death of her mother. Once on the road she begins to exhibit vampirish behavior. She sleeps all day. She drinks blood, though she believes she is bestowing on her victims a gift out of love. She begins to hear a voice that urges her on. What makes all of this interesting is the ambiguity. She was never bitten. There was nothing that "turned" her. She can't change into anything and she is not fussed by religious icons. And while she seems to develop special powers later on, we must remember that we are reading the first person narration of a young woman who is possibly mentally ill. Even the book's final lines don't offer certainty. Can madness be contagious? Perhaps. I suppose, in the end, it is up to the reader to decide. ( )
