  1. This book is about vampires? I could have sworn this was about a werewolf from the cover! My favorite sentence is : "Health class is so stupid." LOL

  2. It's actually a pretty cool book where there are vampires, werewolfs and humans. It's cool to be a vampire but werewolfs are like second class citizens. The main character's mom is a vampire and his dad is a werewolf.

  3. Oh wow, that sounds really cool. I'm adding it to my to-read list right NOW!
