Summary: 1972. Her mother is the worst witch in the Midwest. Mary has long since come to terms with this, but the woman has seriously got to stop summoning demons into their kitchen. It’s unsanitary. And then Alice, the unearthly girl she’s partnered with in history, tells her she’s going to die.
Notes: I’ve only read Twilight, most of New Moon, and Alice’s wikipedia page, so I apologize if I’ve missed some super-vital aspect of Alice that comes out in one of Meyer’s subsequent novels. The independent city of Hamtramck, Michigan, is located entirely within the city of limits of Detroit. Southeast Michigan in the 70s was rarely sunny, and even today, about two-thirds of the year the sky is cloudy, making it a pretty ideal place for vampires who sparkle in the sun to go unnoticed. Title comes from David Bowie’s “Five Years” from The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, which was released in 1972, as was Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things.
