Fat Vampire by Adam Rex - Review

Here's Shannon's review of Fat Vampire, which sounds hilarious.

Think Superbad... but with a vampire. Doug Lee was fifteen and fat on the day he was turned into a vampire. Did our awkward and lardy duckling transform into a beautiful, brooding, enigmatic, Cullen-esque anti-hero? No. Doug is fifteen, fat, and undead. Not only does he have to figure out how to navigate the dangerous waters of high school in a large, plastic, sun-shielding poncho, he also finds himself falling for the new Indian exchange student. On top of all this, the star of the failing reality show, Vampire Hunters, is hot on Doug's trail and desperate to boost his ratings.

Fat Vampire follows Doug to Comic-Con, a Rocky Horror Picture showing, a high school production of West Side Story, and a slew of other hilarious situations. This book is funny and perfect for those tired of the sparkle-pire dark romances we all know too well.

That does sound funny. Who says vampires always have to be runway models?
