Sure, the idea of vampires is sexy, but who actually dreams of spending eternity as a pasty, bloodthirsty fifteen-year-old?
Unfortunately, the somewhat psychotic vampire who turned me into a bloodsucker didn't bother to ask first. Now I'm dealing with parents who want me to vamp them, a younger brother who's convinced I'm a zombie, and a seriously ripped vampire hunter who either wants to stake me or make out with me. Not sure which. Oh and PS, none of my favorite fanfic prepared me to deal with vampire politicswhich are looking pretty tricky based on the undead Elder trying to hunt me down.
What's a vampire-obsessed fangirl turned real-life fanggirl supposed to do?
Helen Keeble is not, and never has been, a vampire. She has, however, been a teenager. She grew up partly in America and partly in England, which has left her with an unidentifiable accent and a fondness for peanut butter crackers washed down with a nice cup of tea. She now lives in West Sussex, England, with her husband, daughter, two cats, and a variable number of fish (none of which are evil undead goldfish).
“Quirky and fun. Jane’s authentic teen dialogue is refreshing and reminiscent of Louise Rennison’s Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series.”
