A brief introduction to Nora’s book on vampires
Nora shares about the book she is about to publish on a vampire girl, Luna, whose human form is called Lucy. She was bullied in her old school and did not have any friends. The situation improved for Lucy only after she transferred to another school and makes new friends. She is not aware that these new friends of hers are also fellow vampires.
Nora was inspired by a book called Wonder by Raquel Jaramillo Palacio to write a book about a protagonist who goes through many challenges to grow as a person. The story of Wonder revolves around a boy named August who was born with a medical condition which resulted in facial deformities. His condition causes him much grief when he enters mainstream high school when he is bullied because of his looks. Thankfully, August has two good friends at school called Jack and Summer who defend him at school.
