Wow! What a pleasant suprise! This book was funny - great sarcastic snarky humor. I had to keep reading to the finish - the suspense was killing me.
Teen angst would be bad enough, but when you're turning into a vampire and having dreams about killing your friends and drinking their blood, and a Celestial Being named Chet wants you to work as a secret agent to thwart the vampire lord Tch'muchgar's plan to return and take over the United States, it becomes much harder to ask the girl you like out on a date...
