Book Review-Millennium Snow

Millennium Snow by Bisco Hatori is the story of Chiyuki, a girl who has been in and out of the hospital her entire life. Her parents gave her the name ‘Chiyuki’ which means ‘millennium snow’ in the hopes that Chiyuki would live for many years instead of the few years that were predicted. One day, looking out the hospital window, Chiyuki sees someone jump off of a building. She runs outside to find the person, and encounters a vampire named Toya. He had not jumped off the building. Instead, he had collapsed because he was too hungry. His sidekick Yami (a bat) rushes over, having only left Toya’s side so that he could find food to bring to him. Chiyuki, not about to let this chance at something fun and interesting run away bugs Toya almost to the point of being obnoxious, knowing very well that she could die any day. She even gets him admitted to her school!
It is a very interesting story. Chiyuki is a spunky girl who doesn’t let anything (including her illness) get her down. And she likes keeping everyone as happy as she is. And that includes people, animals, angry vampires, bats, energetic werewolves. This two book series is a quick, fun read.
