Parody Bandwagon: stop number 2

Enter TwiLite by Stephen Jenner.  The synopsis reads very similar to the previously reviewed Nightlight by the Harvard Lampoon, yet this novel was released back in April of this year:

"Love between a teenage girl and a vampire can be a beautiful thing. Then again, it can get a little ugly. Just ask Stella Crow. Stella is a clumsy but otherwise ordinary girl whose life takes a radical turn the moment she meets Edweird. Though perfect on the outside, Edweird Sullen is remarkably unrefined on the inside. He also happens to be a one hundred year old vampire, trapped in the body of a teenage boy, who has yet to finish high school. Nonetheless, Stella is unconditionally smitten with him. But not everything is rosy in this gloomiest of towns. Edweird's enemies have sworn to put a tragic end to their romance. Against all odds, the bond between Stella and Edweird is nearly strong enough for their love to survive. Most love stories between an impossibly handsome vampire and an ungainly young woman have a magical ending. This one - not so much."

Even though I was disappointed in NightLight, my snark-dar is begging me to pick this one up.  Maybe after finals and the holidays I will be able to see if the more promising rating for this novel (courtesy of my beloved is true to my tastes.
