Benny and Rory. This babysitter may look like the girl of his dreams,
but Sarah just happens to be half-vampire (a "fledgling" for you
experts), and she drags Ethan and his buddies into a world of wild
supernatural battles against creatures straight out of their
nightmares. Now Ethan not only has to take on demons, ghosts,
werewolves, and zombies, he still has to get his homework done on time and be in bed by 10.
