I wish I could give this book 3.5 stars (so I'll round up!!). I don't really like vampire novels, let alone vampire novels for young adults, but I love M.T. Anderson. So...

The novel has a great sense of humor and an overly abundant use of similes (some creative, some not so much). Ultimately all of the vampiric things the main character endures is really a metaphor for adolescence. My only gripe was that the book didn't possess the same insight and character reflection found within the last chapter. Good stuff though (or maybe I'm just a total M.T. Anderson fanboy).
