Go to high school. Hang out with friends. Kill vampires. 
  
Kate's life was pretty average-except for the vampire slayer thing-until she turned 18 and everything changed. When a new boy enters her life, suddenly she's thrown into a world of blood and magic. Everything she thought she knew about the supernatural turns out to be wrong, and her role is more important than ever.

This is a second draft. I have lots of revisions in mind, but first I need to finish TWO novellas I'm working on for a group project. I'd love to hear your thoughts, suggestions, etc. :)
  

ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION: 
  
 So, this story began rattling around in my head while I was working overnights back in 2008. I was inspired by the song "Baby Doll Gone Wrong" by Skye Sweetnam. It's about a girl who looks so sweet and innocent (like a baby doll) but she's actually super bad ass.
  
  Kate is a normal teenage girl, high school senior by day and vampire slayer by night. On her eighteenth birthday things suddenly change and everything she thought she knew about herself crumbled as the truth about her birth parents is brought to light. 
  
  I'd love to hear any thoughts on the story and ideas for a title! (This is book 1, there will be at least one more and a prequel.)

Here's another example paragraph of where you switch tenses. Careful :)

Morning! "I grabbed the sleek silver...and.." You don't need the AND here.
                              
                              Also was this supposed to have the name of a weapon?

I don't read many religious characters, so I like that she's nice and Catholic.

Hard to get over the “Hanging out in a graveyard past one a.m.” but hey, Kate was too...

Suggestion: Perhaps change it to, "that had obviously been totaled, quite a bit of his blood had been unaccounted for." The sentence seems strange.
