Glass Houses

My next book is the first in a series for young adults (The Morganville Vampire series) by Rachel Caine. GLASS HOUSES (NAL Jam, c2006, ISBN 0-451-21994-5) is set in Morganville, Texas.
Claire Danvers is 16-years-old and a college student which causes some problems in and of itself. When she is hazed mercilessly at the dorms, she worries for her safety and looks for a place off campus to live. She meets Eve Rosser at the Glass House and with a nod from the other roommates, Shane Collins and Michael Glass, she is allowed to move in.
But then she finds out the town is overrun by vampires and life gets a little crazy as living in a town overrun by vampires might get.

The book starts:

On the day Claire became a member of the Glass House, someone stole her laundry.

I found this to be a fun start to an interesting series and I would recommend it to anyone who is fans of the Westerfeld books, the Darren Shan books, and even adults like myself who like the vampire books by Charlaine Harris and Mary Janice Davidson.
