Like a lot of readers, I’m a little “vampired out” these days. But when I read the jacket copy of SUCK IT UP, I was hooked. This book promised to be funny and clever and different. I’m happy to report it totally delivered.
Morning McCobb has the misfortune to have become immortal at one of the most awkward times in a person’s life…that acne prone insecure and awkward part of his adolescence. And he’s frozen there forever. Yeah, I liked him instantly. When he becomes the poster-child for the vampire community, which wants to present a kinder gentler image to the world, you can just imagine the ridiculous moments that will come. Well, actually you can’t. And that is part of the fun of this book. It’s unpredictable, and well-written, and so entertaining.
This book isn’t broody and angsty, instead, think of it like the soy-based blood substitute that peaceful Morning McCobb drinks every day: Blood Lite.
