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 vampiress 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. Excerpt from Amazon.com
Fangs for Nothing is probably the funniest vampire novel that I have ever read. There were so many times that I laughed out loud and may have had tears in my eyes from laughing so hard (thankfully no one was in the lunch room with me). Fangs for Nothing starts with Sherbie, Xander and Rini in search for vampires but they come up empty handed and head back home from San Francisco. Sherbie and Xander’s friendship made me die of laughter they are always making fun of each other. Xander decides he needs to be “cool” around the ladies and with Sherbie in so much denial that I girl may actually like him instead of just friends. This creates tons of humor because being a girl I could read all the signs Maureen and Lana were sending Sherbie but he was too blind to see it which left me laughing at him. Rini’s character was the typically girl who has a crush on the hot best friend and thinks he doesn’t like her like that and falls into the world of vampires with Maureen.
Fangs for Nothing is a great read for vampire fans looking for a good laugh.
