iDrakula by Bekka Black, 150 pages
This was a really interesting twist on the Dracula story, told via text messages and email between Mina Murray, Jonathan Harker, Lucy Westenra, and Abraham Van Helsing. It pared the story down to the essentials, heightening the suspense, and modernizing this for the teen set. I wouldn't have wanted this to be my first introduction to Dracula, but as someone who has read a ton of vampire books, including many retellings of Dracula, this was a good read of an old story.
