A few weeks ago, I found myself multi-tasking. I was pretending to watch a basketball game with my husband and was finishing up Team Human By Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan. As my eyes strayed away from the page and to the television screen, I noticed that all the spectators at the game were wearing "Team ???" shirts to show their support for the big game. This sign of true fandom immediately reminded me of my devotion to "Team Edward."

I must start this review by saying that the authors' dedication to all the great writers who have written stories about vampires truly surprised me and was a nice opening treat for the reader. The cover of course reminded somewhat of a movie edition version of a popular book, but I pressed on to see what this joint effort in writing had to offer my imagination and already full commitment to the love of vampire inspired novels. In Team Human the reader is presented with a new outlook in the world of living among humans and vampires. Mel and Cathy are best friends. However, when Francis, a new vampire in the town begins attending the local high school, Cathy immediately falls in love. Mel is disappointed that Cathy has become attached to Francis so quickly. This frustration with Cathy sends Mel on a little fact finding quest for answers to who Francis is and why is he here.

Along the way Mel finds a new friend herself, named Kit. A young human guy, with a unique life and story of his own. With Kit's help, Mel works hard at trying to figure out the secrets that Francis is keeping. Sprinkled throughout the storyline are several minor characters with mysteries of their own, yet to be solved. Finally, Team Human is a hint of all your favorite vampire novels, with many new twists of its own. This extremely quick read, for young adult readers, has a flawless beginning, middle and end, which is well well worth a try.
