Sucks to Be Me:

The All-True Confessions of Mina
Hamilton, Teen Vampire (maybe)

 by Kimberly Pauley

For 16-year-old Mina, pleasing her parents means accepting their vampire lifestyle.  But sucking blood is the last thing on her mind.  With prom looming, who has time to think about becoming undead?

Tips:

  • This series is full of silly and black humor.  Play up that angle to appeal to more squeamish readers.
  • Mina’s story continues in Still Sucks to Be Me.
  • The author captures the teen voice perfectly and she also includes Mina’s lists and IMs.  The result is a novel full of delightful teen humor and tons of vampire history.
  • This is a great series for readers who enjoyed the Vlad series by Brewer and other budding supernatural series.  Delightfully silly, it is a great introduction to the genre.
