Description: Grab some garlic and start sharpening your mother's wooden spoons because there are vampires living in the most unlikely of places.

I’ve always wanted to meet a vampire. Not to stake some poor bloodsucker as he sleeps in his coffin or have some sexy vampires bite me on the neck, but just to see a creature so rare and infamous. What can I say? Some people want to sail to Easter Island, others want to fling themselves out of an airplane, I want to shake hands with a vampire. Well, maybe I should prioritize getting a girlfriend first, but a vampire sighting is pretty high up on the list. Trust me, a lot of kids my age dream about it. Like my two best friends, Rini and Xander. We spent half the summer searching the most notorious cities in the United States for the undead, but so far, no luck.

That’s why it came as a total shock to discover a living, breathing vampire in our hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. (Okay, so he’s more undead and not breathing, but you get the picture.) At first we were kind of excited, but then pretty freaked because it turns out our new fanged friend has a hold on the city's teenage population and a specific thirst for their blood. Which, in a word—bites

Review: I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a great easy quick read. This is not your typical vampire story. I read a lot of vampire books and they all pretty much have the same story. This was very different, and it was very funny book. Also in your typical vampire book they suck the life out of their prey. In this book there is a different twist. It is something any girl can relate with.

I related to the main character Sherbie. He is the unpopular friend who is best friends with the most wanted boy in school. Sherbie had me laughing. He doesn't catch on to things right away, and it was funny to read his interaction with girls in the book.
