How to be a Vampire: A Fangs-On Guide for the Newly Undead

51oB0EijPDL._SL500_AA240_We just started laughing when Amy Gray’s new book, How to be a Vampire: A Fangs-On Guide for the Newly Undead came across our desk. You have to know tweens, teens and young adults to know that vampires are all the rage.

The book is marked for kids 12 and up.  You have to be in the zone to appreciate the humor of such topics as “Dos and Don’t of dating a mortal” and “What’s Your Vampire Persona?”…of course you may not find the page on “Finding the Perfect Sire” appropriate for your teen–so I’d recommend taking a look at this one first.

Of course it will be the perfect holiday present for my 21 year old niece!
