Description

Nearly two years after Suck It Up, all Morning McCobb wants is to complete his training at the NY Fire Academy and to stay head over heels in love with Portia for as long as the chronology-crossed lovers can, given that she's now eighteen and he's stalled at sixteen.
It's nearly the first anniversary of American Out Day, the historic day on which the Leaguer vampires of America began going mainstream without going bloodstream on their fellow mortal citizens.
The tension between Morning's wish for a simple, out of the spotlight life, and Portia's cinematic obsession with historic events escalates to the breaking point when a super-sinister vampire rises from the grave with a powerful thirst, for revenge.




About the Author

BRIAN MEEHL's witty "vampire lite" story is unlike any vampire tale ever told.




Praise For Suck It Up and Die

School Library Journal
"A year has passed since America Out Day, the day on which awkward 16-year-old vampire Morning McCobb led other vampires in their quest to integrate peaceably into everyday human life. This book defies any efforts to give it a genre label. Action and suspense abound, with a little romance thrown in for good measure. Between the soy-based blood substitute favored by vegan vampires and terms like 'dentis eruptus,' Meehl fabricates a vampire experience that is not only laugh-out-loud funny but nuanced as well."
