Adam Rex’ Fat Vampire is in stores today — and I have to say, this is one of the funniest books I’ve read in ages. (Look for my review soon!) And now that it’s in stores, I thought you should know to go look for it!
Want to know more? Here’s the synopsis, followed by two hilarious book trailers:
Doug Lee is undead quite by accident—attacked by a desperate vampire, he finds himself cursed with being fat and fifteen forever. When he has no luck finding some goth chick with a vampire fetish, he resorts to sucking the blood of cows under cover of the night. But it’s just not the same.
Then he meets the new Indian exchange student and falls for her—hard. Yeah, he wants to bite her, but he also wants to prove himself to her. But like the laws of life, love, and high school, the laws of vampire existence are complicated—it’s not as easy as studying Dracula. Especially when the star of Vampire Hunters is hot on your trail in an attempt to boost ratings.…
Leave it to Adam Rex to create a thought-provoking novel that takes on teen angst, sexuality, identity, love, and undeath in ways that break it out of the genre.
I’m totally excited about this book. We begged our collections guy at the library I work at to buy it for us. He’d never heard of it. We totally educated him on it 🙂
