The Radleys by Matt Haig
The Radleys are a family of vampires in Bishopthorpe, England. The parents, Peter and Helen, are vampires who follow a lifestyle that abstains from consuming human blood and fitting in with human society. Blood is a drug addiction for vampires. It doesn't grant immortality, but longer life, strength, and the ability to fly. Peter's and Helen's children, Clara and Rowan, are unaware of their heritage, until Clara's hidden vampire surfaces when a boy tries to sexually assault her. Peter's brother, who delights in all the powers gained by consuming human blood, must be called in to clean up the mess. Clara and Rowan, however, now understand why they never fit in and must make their own decisions about their vampire status. Matt Haig's novel has received mostly positive reviews with The Guardian saying, "Haig pays just about enough respect to the conventions of the genre that the average vampire fan should find lots to enjoy, but it's the blackly comic dissection of the family that makes this book stand out."
