I Recommend: Eighth Grade Bites (Chronicles of Vladimir Tod) by Heather Brewer

Description from

~ALA 2008 Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers~

If you thought eighth grade was tough, try it with fangs and a fear of garlic.

Junior high school really sucks for thirteen-year-old Vladimir Tod, and not in the good slurp-up-the-blood kind of way. A gang of bullies harasses him daily, the principal is dogging his every move, and the girl he really likes prefers his best friend. Oh, and Vlad has to hide the fact that he's a vampire.

When the one teacher he really connects with mysteriously vanishes, Vlad is determined to find him. But then Vlad finds an unsettling note scribbled across his essay: "I know your secret."
Vlad must locate his missing teacher, dodge the principal, resist the bullies’ tempting invitations to Bite me!, and get a date for the dance—all before he is exposed for the teen vampire he is.

Other books in the series: Ninth Grade Slays, Tenth Grade Bleeds, Eleventh Grade Burns.

I am working on my review right now, and have read all of Brewer's series to date. Eleventh Grade Burns is my favorite and I can't wait for the next book, because this one has a cliff hanger ending.

Good choice.

Great recommendation girl! that book has been staring at me to open it. ;)

Jan von Harz: I can't wait to see the review, and she is Brewer is the great lover of cliff hanger! She is going to kill me one day. :)
