This is a good read for those who like vampires and action, and who also don't like scary books. This is a fast-paced, funny tale about a group of "reformed" vampires. They don't feed on human blood. They don't go on wild biting sprees. They do meet in therapy groups with a priest (their friend) who listens to them talk about their feelings. It is a very unique vampire book, because while most books describe vampires as handsome and powerful, these vampire are sickly, weak, and pale. There is even a 72-year-old vampire in the group, an old lady named Bridget who knits and has hip problems. However disabled they are, they attempt to solve a mystery before it is too late: The "not a friend" vampire of the group has been murdered, and the murderer took his phonebook (A.K.A- the one that states all of their names, phone numbers, emails, and home addresses)! while searching for the killer, they befriend a werewolf, gain a few enemies, and learn that even though they can't look at light without their eyeballs getting a hemorrhage (a blood vessel breaks and their eyeballs bleed), and they are all sleeping in a coma-like state during sunlit hours, and if they do somehow get out during that time they expolde into ashes, and they are nauseated frequently... despite all THAT, they can still live somewhat normally. It is a definite must read. Recommended for grades 6-12 graders.
