"I can think of a lot of ways things could have worked out better. I'm thinking they couldn't have worked out any worse."

Summary: Mina Hamilton, uh hum, Mina Smith, is now an "all-powerful, all-knowing, in-control" vampire, haha, as if. As exciting as being a vampire is, there are just somethings that really suck (figuratively...and a little literally). Her boyfriend,George, is leaving her to "connect" with his parents in Brazil, but Mina is pretty sure he is just cavorting around Brazillian beaches, with Brazillian girls in bikinis. Becoming a vampie means, that she has to "die" and be relocated, which means she has to leave all her friends behind, but at least her best friend knows the truth (shh, don't tell the VRC). And the drinking the totally kind gross. Also, her parents are now apparently her brother and sister-in-law, weirdness.

Things seem to get better (or is it worse?) when she gets to her new home, which is in the middle of no where. Grady, the cute yet kinda stupid jock, won't leave her alone, she is now the "trendsetter" of the school, and the only teen vampire in her town, Cameron, is starting to make her forget George from his deliciously spicy smell...and he seems to be hiding some secrets that Mina is dying to know about.

Wdebo's Review: Yeah! I was actually quite excited for this book, because I really wanted to see what Mina would be like as a vampire.

The book keeps all of the sarcastic nature of Mina which was's nice to hear sarcastic comments about the world that sound like something I would make. Except sometimes I felt like the sarcasm took away from feelings of some parts, and also sometimes her problems just seemed kind of annoying...and she just sounded annoying.

Mia is actually not that bad of a character, she is actually quite amusing. And I really loved Cameron...I guess I just have a thing for the strong, silent, blood sucking types ;)

Cafe Cover Chat: Follows in the footsteps of the Sucks to Be Me's the blue! (B+)

All in all, a good sequal to Sucks to Be Me, which the fans of the first book, should be able to enjoy and get into.

Grade: B+
