Dear Librarians,

"A refreshing take on the teen vampire! Blending humor, intriguing characters, and unexpected twists, Schillace creates an entertaining read and a quirky new hero who will appeal to those thirsting for intelligent YA." —David B. Coe/D.B. Jackson, Thieftaker Chronicles

Looking for smart fiction aimed at boys? Jacob Maresbeth isn't the usual brooding, sparkly, sexualized hero. He's fallible. He's awkward around girls. He just also happens to drink blood. Diagnosed with a rare disease, Jake has been hiding his weirder symptoms for years. Everyone wants to fit in, right? In HIGH STAKES, Jake learns that while being different can be hard, it's sometimes the "normal" people you have to watch out for! Forced to spend the summer with his maiden aunt, Jake's worries about death-by-boredom turn into a race against time.

I am a teacher and would love to come speak about Jake and about the power of reading!
