Title: Tenth Grade Bleeds
Author: Heather Brewer
Series: The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod
Summary: Vlad must battle the evils of tenth grade while being hunted down by vampires who want him dead because of who he is.
I love the Vlad Tod books. The vampire world that Brewer has created is filled with just enough of a mix of traditional and modern vampire lore to keep me interested. I also just geeked out during the references to Vampire: The Masquerade. (If anyone else reading my blog played the game, too, omg I’ll really like you and we should be friends.)
But these books really aren’t about vampires; they’re about a boy who is just trying to go through life with the hand he’s been dealt and figuring out what “normal” is and how to be it. Vlad has to deal with hormones (human or otherwise) and constantly being left behind by the uncle he loves.
