About the Book: (Goodreads) Grab some garlic and start sharpening your mother's wooden spoons because there are vampires living in the most unlikely of places.
I’ve always wanted to meet a vampire. Not to stake some poor bloodsucker as he sleeps in his coffin or have some sexy vampiress bite me on the neck, but just to see a creature so rare and infamous. What can I say? Some people want to sail to Easter Island, others want to fling themselves out of an airplane, I want to shake hands with a vampire. Well, maybe I should prioritize getting a girlfriend first, but a vampire sighting is pretty high up on the list. Trust me, a lot of kids my age dream about it. Like my two best friends, Rini and Xander. We spent half the summer searching the most notorious cities in the United States for the undead, but so far, no luck.
That’s why it came as a total shock to discover a living, breathing vampire in our hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. (Okay, so he’s more undead and not breathing, but you get the picture.) At first we were kind of excited, but then pretty freaked because it turns out our new fanged friend has a hold on the city's teenage population and a specific thirst for their blood. Which, in a word—bites.
From My Point of View:
Likes: This book was VERY easy to read -- it was humorous, entertaining, and well written. Ambrose has a way with words and it made for a really enjoyable book.
Dislikes: There wasn't much that I disliked about this book. Ambrose did a really good job creating an entertaining storyline.
Why 3 stars: I only rated this book 3 stars because of my personal preference for Young Adult books. I would have loved this story had it been an adult novel, but because I can't really get into YA, I had to go with three.
Recommendation: This book is definitely for fans of paranormal and young adult. It is a super fun read that I could easily see teens sinking their teeth into (get it? Vampire pun?? HAHAH! Ok, not that funny).
