The snow has caused a lack of post and a lack of leaving the house so only one book for me this week, courtesy of the lovely people at Penguin.
Eighth Grade Bites (Chronicles of Vladimir Tod, Book 1) - Heather Brown
This book is already out in the US but is due to be release in the UK on 6th January 2011
Junior high really stinks for thirteen-year-old Vladimir Tod. Bullies harass him, the principal is dogging him, and the girl he likes prefers his best friend. Oh, and Vlad has a secret: His mother was human, but his father was a vampire. With no idea of the extent of his powers and no one to teach him, Vlad struggles daily with his blood cravings and his enlarged fangs. When a strange substitute teacher begins to question him a little too closely, Vlad worries that his cover is about to be blown. But then he realizes he has a much bigger problem: He’s being hunted by a vampire killer who is closing in . . . fast!
