SUGAR RUSH is an extremely original and well thought-out young adult novel. It follows Ophelia Dawson who, because of her diabetic blood that is extra sweet for vampires, finds herself directly in the middle of a turf war between Newbloods and Oldbloods, two different types of vampires. Her only allies are a newly created vampire and a human who helps diabetics escape when the vampires capture them.
Fans of young adult novels should love this book, as it is extremely original and has a very unique and different way at looking vampires. Due to the main character's personality, vampires are looked at much more scientifically then ever before.
The plot is well written, and after the first couple chapters, the book becomes too addictive to put down even for a moment. Other than that, the only real complaint anyone could make about the plot is that SUGAR RUSH leaves everything very up in the air. However, this is a common practice for a series so as to make readers even more impatient to read the next one. One of the best things about the plot is that it is paced really well and doesn't feel even the slightest bit rushed.
The characters are interesting and most enjoyable to read about, however it was a shame to see the last of some of them. As it is perhaps too easy to get fond of the characters, as they were portrayed in a way that they felt almost real.
In conclusion, Sugar Rush is an extremely enjoyable young adult novel, and with a great plot and fantastic characters, it is probably the most original young adult novel of 2010.
