Wildly original, funny and clever writing from the best-selling author and creator of Evil Genius and Genius Squad. This is not a typical vampire book, like Twilight
, but it picks up on the current fascination with vampires and twists it on its head, injecting some Woody Allen-style comedy and neurosis along the way.
Modern-day vampires negotiate their existence in suburbia, trying to lead normal lives and stay clean with the help of their support group.
Fifteen-year-old Nina has been a vampire since 1973, and she's hated every day of it. But as sickly and tedious as her life has become, it takes a turn for the worse when a member of her therapy group is killed by an unknown vampire slayer. Threatened with extinction, she and her fellow vampires try to hunt down the culprit - and soon find themselves caught up in a dangerous quest full of guns, thugs and victimised werewolves.
