Summary:"Examining young adult vampire fiction and how it fits in both the contemporary and classic vampire canon, Not Your Mother's Vampire: Vampires in Young Adult Fiction begins with a primer on vampire scholarship, including a brief deconstruction of ten seminal vampire representations - five literary, five cinematic - and their impact on young adult vampire novels. The evolution of vampires from scary Gothic enemies into postmodern sexualized heroes is traced, and the influence of Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles is examined."--Back cover.
