Bite me! by Melissa Francis

Pages:  296
Publishers:  HarperTeen
Published:  August 1, 2009

AJ Ashe isn't your typical seventeen-year-old vampire as if there is such a thing! She's stuck in the middle of a huge fight between her two BFFs. Her ex-boyfriend whom she's still totally in love with, by the way is now her stepbrother. A former classmate who, um, she may or may not have turned into a vampire is stalking her. And now, apparently, the fate of humankind lies in her little undead hands. What ever happened to the good old days, when all a vampire girl had to worry about was the occasional zit and hiding her taste for blood?


This is a new type of vampire lore.  One with crazy clans, prophecies, and a girl with a ‘thing’ for her new stepbrother.  I know it’s gross, but her was her boyfriend before Ryan’s dad and her mom got married.  Really!  Parents, you need to think of your kids before your self.  And the kids can’t just turn off their feelings like a light. *sigh*

I thought that this would be another book about: boy meets girl.  Boy and girl date.  Boy says he loves girl.  Boy and girl get separated.  Boy and girl fight evil.  Boy and girl are reunited.  Boy and girl think they’ll be together forever.  *gah!*  Some of them are sobbby love stories.  Hate them!  I don’t like to cry.  Goodbye Romeo and Juliet!

This one was filled with a lot of action and there was even a hint about a student’s affair with a teacher with a teacher.  Oh la la!  She’s also caught herself a stalker, and the school thinks that she’s cheated so she’s suspended.  In the end Ryan saves her and her parents tell them something that makes them go what the ****.  This book has more twists than a pretzel so be ready for surprises.
