REVIEW: Dead is the New Black by Marlene Perez

Description

Welcome to Nightshade, California—a small town full of secrets. It’s home to the pyschic Giordano sisters, who have a way of getting mixed up in mysteries. During their investigations, they run across everything from pom-pom-shaking vampires to shape-shifting boyfriends to a clue-spewing jukebox. With their psychic powers and some sisterly support, they can crack any case!
      Teenage girls are being mysteriously attacked all over town, including at Nightshade High School, where Daisy Giordano is a junior. When Daisy discovers that a vampire may be the culprit, she can’t help but suspect head cheerleader Samantha Devereaux, who returned from summer break with a new “look.” Samantha appears a little . . . well, dead, and all the most popular kids at school are copying her style.
       Is looking dead just another fashion trend for Samantha, or is there something more sinister going on? To find out, Daisy joins the cheerleading squad.

Very cute YA paranormal. If you enjoyed the Salem Witch series by Kelly McClymer, you will love this one. Just replace witch with undead, like in vampire and you have a fun story about Daisy a "norm" living in a family of psychics. Of course she ends up on the cheerleading squad and discovers her hidden talent while finding the vampire that is causing havoc in the town of Nightshade. This one is very appropriate for younger girls not quite ready for Twilight.
