It’s time for another Halloween Pick! So far I’ve recommended a ghost story, a murder mystery, and a bizarre book, and Sheralyn has recommended a movie for halloween. I don’t know about you, but when I think of Halloween, I think of paranormal creatures. Today I’m recommending a book with vampires!
Team Human by Justine Larbalestier & Sarah Rees Brennan
Just because Mel lives in New Whitby, a city founded by vampires, doesn’t mean she knows any of the blood-drinking undead personally. They stay in their part of town; she stays in hers. Until the day a vampire shows up at her high school. Worse yet, her best friend, Cathy, seems to be falling in love with him. It’s up to Mel to save Cathy from a mistake she might regret for all eternity!
On top of trying to help Cathy (whether she wants it or not), Mel is investigating a mysterious disappearance for another friend and discovering the attractions of a certain vampire wannabe. Combine all this with a cranky vampire cop, a number of unlikely romantic entanglements, and the occasional zombie, and soon Mel is hip-deep in an adventure that is equal parts hilarious and touching.
Acclaimed authors Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan team up to create a witty and poignant story of cool vampires, warm friendships, and the changes that test the bonds of love.
Defintely watch the book trailer – it’s hilarious!
Petit Branch does have a copy of Team Human, but it may be checked out.
