Douglas Rees is hilarious. Wonderful wry sentences keep the reader chuckling as Cody Elliot starts what should be a great sophomore year at Vlad Dracul the rigorous jenti (vampire-but Don't call then that!) High school in his town. He had a great freshman year and is looking forward to fitting right in - enter his gothic, prickly, strident artist cousin Turquoise (Turk to you) who get right to work alienating everyone she meets.
As ever, Cody measures his reactions to each problem and opportunity against what is right and strives to do the decent thing even if it is hard or strains his friendships.
Cool themes and funny writing make this a refreshing read.
