Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

Teens will appreciate Gina's unique stake, or uh, take on vampirism -- she worries how she will survive eternity without being able to check herself out in the mirror, for example. In the end, though, the campy vamp protagonist is really all this book has going for it. The plot is slow to unfold, and readers will likely have lost interest long before the heated battles for vampire dominance begin.
