's review

it was ok
bookshelves: paranormal, ya, vampires

First off, the title is mis-leading. Mention ghouls and I expect ghosts, not vampires. But vampires it is. Teenage vampires who somehow manage to attend school in Texas. Basically the characters seemed a bit too one-dimensional and stupid.

What I enjoyed:
* The friendship between Beth, Jenny and Clayton.

What could have been better:
* Really, you're over two hundred years old and you want to play high school football???
* And you expect this newly turned, teenage vampire to solve an ages old problem in just a few days/weeks?
* If you couldn't tell, the main vampire in the book was a bit lame.
* Oh yeah - Clayton that was a fairly lame attempt to stop Beth. You knew the seriousness and just did that?
* I was just turned into a vampire. Hmmm, what will my first thoughts be? My family - no, my friends - no. I know, it will be about revenge, because that will make everything better.
* Of course, I'm not surprised Beth wasn't thinking about her family. She has some pretty bad parents.
* The end. I mean really, she (view spoiler)

Lacy I'm curious to see what you think of this one.

Diane ~Firefly~ I'm about 1/3 of the way into it and it is just ok so far.
