Christmas won’t be Christmas without any corpses.

The dear, sweet March sisters are back, and Marmee has told them to be good little women—good little vampire women, that is. That’s right, Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy have grown up since you last heard their tale, and now they have (much) longer lives and (much) more ravenous appetites.

Marmee has taught them well, and so they live by an unprecedented moral code of abstinence … from human blood. Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy must learn to get along with one another, help make society a better place—and avoid the vampire hunters who pose a constant threat to their existence. Plus, Laurie is dying to become a part of the March family at any cost. Some things never change.

This horrifying—and hilarious—retelling of a timeless American classic will leave readers craving more bloodthirsty drama.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Apparently, we’ve been reading everything all wrong...Fortunately, Lynn Messena is here to resurrect the previously untold vampiric careers of Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March. Blood curdling fun.”

    Barnes & Noble editorial review

  • “Messina flawlessly maintains the flavor of the original, inserting the vampiric element so seamlessly that it becomes evident that a gothic thread was there all along, waiting to be picked up.”

    Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

  • “Surprisingly effective…[A] clever and loving spoof, replete with excellent wordplay and footnotes to clarify vampire history.”

    Booklist

  • “Messina has cleverly interspersed footnotes in the text to explain some past vampire accomplishment or event. The serious, scholarly tone with which they are written makes them quite humorous. The author’s prose style is sharp, and her imprint on these characters is distinct.”

    School Library Journal

    " It was fine, but I wasn't in the mood for it and decided not to finish it. Not as intriguing to me as the Jane Austen spoofs for some reason. Might appeal to teen fans of the genre more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Emily | 2/17/2014

    " I'm not a big fan of paranormal twists of classics and of vampire novels, but this book wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. It's been a few years since I read the original, but I think this novel stays pretty accurate with the plot and I enjoyed how Lynn Melissa added her own orginal twist to some parts instead of just throwing in a few vampires here and there. I appreciated the humorous aspect of the mashup, but still, I'm not a fan of these types of books. "

    " LOVED IT! I thoroughly enjoyed the way she integrated the vampire world into the already great story of Little Women. "

    " pardon the pun but the classic and beloved Little Women by Louisa May Alcott has been revamped! author Lynn Messina's twist on the lives of sisters Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy March is amusing and entertaining. the footnotes themselves are hilarious. as much as i liked the original story, i could not help loving this one more.
