Inhaltsangabe: Cassandra Gray's life is just like that of any other teen. She has to juggle family life, school, and work. But unlike most teens, "family life" entails maintaining a centuries' old legacy with little to no information on how she and her relatives require tears as living fuel. "School" means spreading rumors, starting fights, and peer counseling to harvest precious drops from crying students. And "work" is volunteering at the hospital where weeping relatives help keep the Gray family matriarch alive. In-between it all, Cassandra has to dodge the cousin who threatens to kill her if she doesn't live up to her family obligations, try to chose between safe, caring Scott and mysterious, electric Caleb, and somehow keep her friend Samantha from spreading the truth about tear collectors all over school. Patrick Jones has again successfully mixed the supernatural with the ordinary surges of teen angst. This time, his teen voice is especially accurate because this book was edited and partly written by a group of five teenagers collectively known as The Elsinore Quills. Together they have picked up where The Tear Collector left off and revealed new dimensions to the generations of this family's deep secrets. Cassandra's journey will require her to have more courage than ever and be willing to take tear collectors in a whole new direction. Will she have the compassion, the strength, and the love to make it happen? Or will she succumb to the darkness of her family's unwritten legacy?
From School Library Journal: Gr 8 Up-From the outside, Cassandra Gray seems like the perfect teen. Beautiful, popular, and caring, she volunteers at her church, school, or the local hospital, consoling and comforting those in need. But Cassandra is not what she seems. She is a grief vampire whose family needs tears to survive. She must collect tears for the matriarch, Veronica, and continue the family line. Questioning certain family decisions and policies, Cassandra demands answers and refuses to just do her duty. Her rebellious nature enables her to feel emotions and establish real friendships, fall in love, and refuse the advances of her cousin. The arrival of dashing but mysterious Caleb complicates her life even more. Jones and the teen group, The Elsinore Quills continue the saga of this very different group of vampires that began in The Tear Collector (Walker, 2009). Readers learn more about the origins and history of these tear collectors, but the plot is slow and lacks intensity. Cassandra still faces the same dilemmas, and it is not until the end that all the pieces fall into place. Although this is a unique and an original twist on the supernatural, the story and characters lack depth and development.-Donna Rosenblum, Floral Park Memorial High School, NYα(c) Copyright 2013.
