I recently read the book LET THE RIGHT ONE In by John Ajvide Lindovist, now released as the movie LET ME IN.
It is a good read and a fair movie; but in order to appreciate the movie it is best to have read the book first.  

Unlike the normal vampire story Lindovist presents a young girl vampire that is of undetermined age but is physically twelve years old for eternity; and a relationship she forms with a young boy living in her apartment building, who is the target of school bullies.  

This is a fascinating premise.   A twelve year old cannot control wealth or own property; she is restricted by all the laws and norms a society places on children; and yet she must survive in an adult world. 

A provocative book and movie.    If you like this genre….
