Synopsis by Goodreads:
On the eve of her eighteenth birthday, Violet Swanson is introduced to a world that she never knew existed. Thoughts of finals and college applications fly out the window when she finds out that her the topic of her final term paper, the Fountain of Youth, may actually exist.

Together with her best friend Margo, and the handsome, mysterious Montrose brothers, Violet tries to decipher the clues in her family history to find the Fountain's location. Jeremiah and Jonah Montrose have their own secrets, and Violet quickly finds herself caught between them. All will be revealed on Violet's birthday, but her past is reaching out putting her entire future at stake.

My Review:
The concept was interesting.  I like the revitalizing take on vampires and the perception behind their existence. 

The characters were relatable of interesting.  I did not like how Violet did not really seem to care about her grandparents very much.  She is a little clueless and goes with her emotions but she does come off as a strong character.  Jonah is a fun, refreshing character and part of the comic relief.  He seems witty but a little afraid of his brother.  Jeremiah seemed like the least developed character, I get the whole mysterious nature thing but I wanted to know more about him and get more emotion from him. Margo had a lot of spirit and even though she wasn't one of the lead vampires she still stood up for what she believed in. and I really liked her positive attitude throughout the whole story.

On a side note being able to celebrate Violet’s birthday after everything that happened and not knowing if her grandparents were even alive seems a little weird.  I get the celebrating of someone’s birthday but when everyone has the chance of getting killed at every moment I wouldn't be throwing a full blown party or letting down my guard. 

Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book.  It set itself up for a sequel pretty nicely without leaving a huge cliffhanger that I can appreciate.
