it was ok

My wisdom tooth is very painful at the moment and my brain cannot take very advanced reading, that's why this one seemed safe enough (provided the aliens don't mind me picking it up...)
It is one example of the familiar modern story vampire/werewoolf/fairy/angel/alien starts attending a high school after moving to a new town, only to make lots of friends, defeat the bully, fight his supernatural enemies and gain the love of the blond cheerleader. Nowadays the new guys turning up at school must feel terribly disappointing!
Again, the romantic element was very weak, and the heroine really bothered me. We see her making pancakes, we see her packing her boyfriend's suitcase, we see her suddenly having the stamina to save his life and still that didn't seem to redeem her in my eyes... Maybe it is the blond hair that spoilt it for me from the start.
I think the general plot of the saga will be more interesting than these characters we met in the first installment.
