Sucks to Be Me: The All-True Confessions of Mina Hamilton, Teen Vampire (maybe) -------- Book Review!

This book was about Mina Hamilton. Her parents are vampires, and the time has come for her to decide if she wants to be a vampire as well. She is thrown into vampire courses for the to-be vampire where she meets a bunch of people. And that's the most basic way to put it!

The plot line in this book was creative enough, but it was lacking fine points. Reactions to BIG things were minimal. Actually, fairly non-existent. And especially, there were a few phrases that were repeated OVER and OVER. That's one of my pet peeves! -.-

As for the characters, they were brilliant in my opinion. I loved Mina, George, and Uncle Mortie especially. There were all different (which is hard to do sometimes) and were all fun in their own ways. And annoying, in their own ways with the other characters. (Aubrey, Raven) I could really relate to Mina most of all. Which is funny, because some fancy-schmany young adult books have awesome plots--but cruddy characters! You never know.

The biggest thing of all was that the story was wrapped up jagged. The ending came at a bit of a random time. And a random place! [not a spoiler] Mina invites her parents to the beach at the end while she's with George. (George is from the vampire to-be course.) Ummmmmmm. . . .what REAL teen would do that? You can definitely tell with that fact and along with others that the author was trying to wrap up asap.


Thanks for reading! Please check out more reviews on this website coming SOON. :)
