From the author's website: Hey, all, it's me… Gina Covello, fashionista of the damned. Yeah, I know, I managed to get almost all the way through high school without cracking a book and now here I am immortalized in one. Well, actually, the immortalization process might have started a bit earlier, like in the broom closet at the after-prom-party, somewhere around the time Bobby-freakin'-Delvecchio started gnawing on my neck. Anyway, this is one book I'd maybe even phone a friend about, since it covers all my adventures going from chic to eek.
Vamped starts with our heroine, Gina, waking up dead - literally - and in a horrible dress to boot. With only her love interest, Bobby, to help her with life as a vampire, she quickly learns that being part of the fang gang has some perks after all.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Cordelia Chase got turned into a vampire? If you have, look no further than Vamped for the answer. It's like Mean Girls with fangs, with witty dialogue and more pop culture references than you can keep up with.
All of the characters are full of humour and sarcasm, even the ridiculously named Mellisande, who turns out to be an arch-nemesis of hilarious proportions. With enough action to satisfy Buffy fans, and a lighthearted romance sure to make you smile, Vamped is a fun, fast-talking addition to the undead genre. It's similar to Amanda Ashby's Zombie Queen of Newbury High, and if you liked that, I think you'll love this.
I'm looking forward to the next book in the series, and I hope it'll be just as fun as this one. If anything, I now know that being bitten doesn't have to ruin your social life!
