    Undoubtedly one of the cutest love stories and best graphic novels I've read. I LOVED this one and I really hope everyone else does too. Real review to come! ...

    Awful, awful, awful. I would actually recommend that people avoid this one. Why? Because it's creepy as hell, that's why. I thought this was a contemporary story. And it seems like it is for most of the book. Which makes it really bone-chilling when the love interest (yes, in a middle ...

    Super fun! Definitely a blast for vampire fans. I love that it was set in Portland and there were lots of fun references to the city. ...

    Adorable, fun, and full of references that will keep book lovers laughing out loud to the very end. FAKE BLOOD is an absolutely unputtdownable graphic novel for readers of all ages. ...

    I read this in one sitting! Adorable, heartwarming, and wholesome, with plenty of nods to the popular vampire culture I (admittedly) embraced as a teenager. A perfect read for fall! ...

    What a fun graphic novel! ...

    Well wasn?t this just adorable. Full review to come! ...

    A not-so-average vampire book about a boy, a girl, crushes, youth, and friendship. This was so sweet and wholesome and I loved it. Review to come ...

    A hilarious, charming, and very real story about fake blood, crushes, and vampires. ...

    A nice mash-up of the coming of age story with a clear send up of the Twilight series. Perfectly-situated for that entering middle school reader navigating the changes that come with getting older and the transitions that come along with growth. Funny! ...

    Great story about vampires and friendship, not your typical vamp story. Love it! ...

    This is a not so scary, funny, novel about vampires, school friends and crushes. When AJ starts the new school year he feels like his friends have changed but his boring life is still the same. Paired up with the girl he likes for a project on Transylvania, he realizes the only way she...

    I enjoyed this book SO much! The art is so engaging and perfect for this hilarious, heartfelt, oh, so achingly middle school story. Crushes, vampires, sixth grade! I bought this book for me, but my 11 year-old is OBSESSED. He struggles with written words, but here the art captured him ...

    THIS SOUNDS SO GOOD ...

    I really enjoyed this humorous tale. Total spoof of Twilight is included and there?s a great illustrated Easter egg for Harry Potter fans as well. Also, there?s a great Buffy send up. Loved the art style and coloring. Only minor issue was two of the secondary characters poking fun ...

    This graphic novel was a complete delight. My 12-year-old read it before I did and devoured is a better way to say it. She LOVED it. I did too. The details in the illustration are amazing, the story is super engaging, and a fun mix of a realistic contemporary with a hint of paranormal/...

    This book is so much fun! Wonderful story about friendships and crushes and fitting in, together with a spooky setting and wonderful art. Love! ...

    I lovedlovedloved You're Welcome, Universe and really liked Chaotic Good, so I had expectations of this one. I loved all the references to pop-culture vampires and the art is adorable. The feeling of being eleven and the complications that enter friendships at that age are beautifully ...

    I enjoyed this book SO much! The art is so engaging and perfect for this hilarious, heartfelt, oh, so achingly middle school story. Crushes, vampires, sixth grade! I bought this book for me, but my 11 year-old is OBSESSED. He struggles with written words, but here the art captured him ...

    This graphic novel was a complete delight. My 12-year-old read it before I did and devoured is a better way to say it. She LOVED it. I did too. The details in the illustration are amazing, the story is super engaging, and a fun mix of a realistic contemporary with a hint of paranormal/...
