Just one kiss will take your breath away...

My mother used to tell me that matter was neither created nor destroyed, only transferred. She was filled with old theories, which she would make me recite back to her as if she were trying to teach me something about the world but couldn’t find the right words. I never gave them much thought until she and my father were killed, but by then it was too late to ask what it all meant. It wasn’t until I was enrolled at Gottfried Academy that I began to make sense of who I was, and what I was fated to become.

Author Yvonne Woon

Yvonne Woon

Yvonne Woon grew up in Worcester, Massachusetts, USA, in an old stone colonial house surrounded by woods. It was here that she first developed a taste for the macabre, and she has been writing mysteries ever since.

Yvonne attended the prestigious Worcester Academy prep school in Boston, where, like Renée, the length of her skirt was routinely measured. She first began thinking about Latin and the Undead while studying in the library of Colunbia University, New York, where she obtained a Masters of Fine Arts in fiction. Dead Beautiful is her debut novel.

Riveting and different...a real page-turner. School Library Journal

It's been a long time since I was surprised by a book...It reminded me of reading Twilight for the first time. Jess Hearts Books

A dazzling debut that blends elements of Twilight, Romeo and Juliet, Ghost and heart-melting fantasy into one big, beautiful, bewitching story. The Lancashire Evening Post

A compelling, heartbreaking and heart wrenching novel that I couldn't put down. This book has got to be the most romantic book I have read in a long time. The Dark Readers

A great read for all teens who like this genre (and those that are not so sure). The relationship between Renee and Dante grows and grows and with the last sentence in the book Yvonne Woon is likely to have you in tears. Margaret Pemberton, Schools Library Service

If you loved Twilight you'll love this book.The Overflowing Library
