Yes, it's a young adult novel, but it was funny, and I purchased it while I was going through the worst part of my recent vampire phase.

Cody Elliot has just moved to Massachusetts from California. He hates his new town of New Sodom and is proud of his report card full of F's (even in homeroom). His dad, not so proud. Cody gets sent to a new school, Vlad Dracul.

It doesn't take long for Cody to realize that something is different about his fellow students. They wear sunglasses inside, they are strangely silent, and seem to be super-smart. After he sees someone's fangs he realizes the obvious- his classmates are vampires.

Most people would be creeped out by this, but not Cody. As it turns out, going to school with vampires is pretty sweet. Cody doesn't have to do much of anything. He gets free A's, a free ride through college, a free ride through life basically. All he has to do is get in the pool and pretend to play water polo once and a while.

It's when Cody decides to try to get real grades, make some friends, and actually try to win a game of water polo that things start to get messy. Vampires don't like messy very much. For Cody, life is about to get really interesting.

This book was really good, very hard to put down. It had a great plot and is full of mystery. I would suggest it to anyone who is a fan of vampires.

Vampire High is a young adult novel, probably appropriate for ages 10 and up. While I was reading it I thought that this might be the kind of book to give to a kid who doesn't like to read. It reminded me of the Phantom Tollbooth in a way because there is a lesson in here about at least making an effort in life. I thought this was a fun, engrossing book and a pretty fast read. This felt like it could be the beginning of a series but I didn't see any other books out.
