Eighth Grade Bites review



Vlad has to keep his vampire urges under control while dealing with the pressures of middle school.Thirteen-year-old Vladimir Tod really hates junior high. Bullies harass him, the principal is dogging him, and the girl he likes prefers his best friend. Oh, and Vlad has a secret: His mother was human, but his father was a vampire. With no idea of the extent of his powers, Vlad struggles daily with his blood cravings and his enlarged fangs. When a substitute teacher begins to question him a little too closely, Vlad worries that his cover is about to be blown. But then he faces a much bigger problem: He’s being hunted by a vampire killer.


I really liked this book. I don't know if I would have normally read it because Vlad is 


kind of young, but there are more books in this series and with each one, he gets a year older. I'm looking forward to the next books! Oh yeah, and it's a shorter, easier read.


Parents need to know that there is a lot of blood in this story, although most of it comes from a blood bank. Three people are killed, but it's not detailed. For full content review check out Parental Book Reviews.
