New Stephenie Meyers Spin-off to Twilight About Babies Who Bite

Pop Quiz:  Who's Bree Tanner?

b.) An altar boy George Rekers hired to carry his groceries

Remember in Eclipse, the third novel in the Twilight Saga, when Victoria created an army of baby vampires to avenge James's death? Well Mormon/vampire groupie Stephenie Meyers has written a novella based on the perspective of one those baby bloodsuckers, Bree Tanner.

The Second Life of Bree Tanner comes out on Saturday, June 5. But the Books & Books in Coral Gables is throwing a Midnight Release Party the night before. Come dressed as a milky-skinned Cullen or a bare-chested wolf, and compete for costume prizes. Show off your obsessiveness by winning a Twilight trivia contest, and hear live music by Courtesy of Paco. Then, at the strike of midnight, a copy of latest in the Twilight Saga will be placed in your sweaty little hands.

The Night for Newborns Party starts at 9:30 p.m. on Friday, June 4

at Books & Books (265 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables). Buy a copy of the

book in advance at any Books & Books location and receive an invite

for the Midnight Release Party next week. Call 305-442-4408 or visit
