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
