As if middle school wasn't hard enough. Throw in being a vampire, and it totally sucks.

I suppose the Vladimir Tod series serves as an alternative to the Twilight series. Eighth Grade Bites is told from the vampire's perspective. Poor kid--Vlad's parents are dead, he's as shy as all get-out, and he can't eat dinner at his best friend's house (they don't serve type A neg).

The angle of the story is entertaining, and believe me, it was a relief to read a young adult vampire book that wasn't fully of sappy purple prose. I just wish the writing was a little better. Sadly, I'm not motivated to read the next book--I hope Vlad finds his place in the world.
