Description:Some vampires are good. Some are evil. Some are faking it to get girls. Awkward and allergic to the sun, sixteen-year-old Finbar Frame never gets the girl. But when he notices that all the female students at his school are obsessed with a vampire romance novel called Bloodthirsty, Finbar decides to boldly go where no sane guy has gone before--he becomes a vampire, minus the whole blood sucking part. With his brooding nature and weirdly pale skin, it's surprisingly easy for Finbar to pretend to be paranormal. But, when he meets the one girl who just might like him for who he really is, he discovers that his life as a pseudo-vampire is more complicated than he expected. This hilarious debut novel is for anyone who believes that sometimes even nice guys-without sharp teeth or sparkly skin--can get the girl.
Review: Bloodthirsty is unlike any book I've ever read. It's plot is pretty unique: A awkward teenage boy pretends to be a vampire in order to get girls. I mean, I was intrigued just when I saw the first cover, which I personally liked better. This book lives up to the hype. And I will definitely be reading more of Flynn Meaney!
Bloodthirsty revolves around Finbar Frame, a shy, pale, average guy who is allergic to the sun. Literately. In one scene when he goes to the beach, he breaks out in hives. He lives in a world that glamorizes vampires and other supernatural beings, aka our world. He lives in Manhattan with his popular brother, Luke, and his parents. He is going to public school for the first time, coming from a Mid- Western Catholic school, where he was the school punching bag. But he wants that to change.
"I should get inside," I told Jenny, adding offhand but clearly, "I don't do well in the sun.
When I said that, Jenny looked super intrigued. Without even trying, I'd met the perfect target. Jenny followed me inside, almost tripping over herself to follow me."
