What's A Straw for Two About

Publisher Summary

Bitten by an ink-drinking vampire who is allergic to blood, Odilon, the son of a bookstore owner, has become an ink drinker. Now he loves using a straw to devour books, but he has no one to share his secret with. He’s lonely . . . until a new girl, Carmilla, arrives at school. Could he make her an ink drinker too? When Odilon follows Carmilla home, he discovers that she’s just as special as he is, and that there’s plenty for them to share. . . .
