Why it still sucks to be me: Here I am some all-powerful (ha), all-knowing (yeah right), in-control (totally not) vampire, and my parents and the stupid Vampire Council still get to dictate everything I do. Not only did they make me fake my death AND funeral (I didn’t even get to go!), but I had to leave behind my BFF Serena and move really far away. Meanwhile my boyfriend George is off “reconnecting with his parents” in Brazil. Land of beaches, bikini babes, and the biggest party in the world. He’s probably going “Mina, who?” Grady asked me to Homecoming and won’t take no for an answer. Did I mention cute but oh-so-complicated Cameron, the only other bloodsucking teen in town? That’s because I’m trying not to think about him, thank you very much. And ugh, Raven. Is she seriously stalking Serena? Vampire super strength can’t fix this train wreck. But can I?
This is the second book in the series by this author. I was so excited to get the chance to read and review this book because I loved the first book Sucks To Be Me.
We welcome back Mina and her parents as they prepare to leave everything behind and start a new life in a new location. Mina finds herself being drug off to Louisiana and she soon realizes it is not going to be in a major city like New Orleans. Again, we get to see the humorous humor that they author does so well and the teenage drama that even a vampire has to go through. You will find yourself laughing and finishing the book in no time.
I love the writing that Ms. Pauley does so well and she had me with her first book cheering for more! I am so glad this book is on its way to the bookstores. I do recommend reading the first book in the series first though. It helps you to understand the teen drama more, but it isn’t necessary.
Very Good! Worth Spending Your Money on!
