Book #8 Read in 2014
Team Human by Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan (YA)
This book focuses on Mel trying to prevent her friend Cathy from deciding to become a vampire. Cathy falls for vampire Francis and decides that she wants to transition and become one herself. Mel feels that this a ridiculous idea. As Mel tries to convince Cathy, she is also trying to find her friend Anna's missing father (supposedly he ran off with one of his vampire therapy patients) and tell with her own feelings towards Kit, a teenager who has grown up among vampires when he was abandoned as a baby on vampire Camille's doorstep.
This book has great humor to it, poking sly fun at the vampire books and movies that have become hot reads of late. The characters are interesting and realistic. The plot combines romance and mystery in an excellent way. I enjoyed it.
