Vlad has to keep his vampire urges under control while dealing with the pressures of middle school.

Thirteen-year-old Vladimir Tod really hates junior high. 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, Vlad struggles daily with his blood cravings and his enlarged fangs. When a substitute teacher begins to question him a little too closely, Vlad worries that his cover is about to be blown. But then he faces a much bigger problem: He’s being hunted by a vampire killer.

Hiding a secret is easier than hiding your fangs. Vlad Tood is a typical 'emo/goth' boy, trying to survive high school. He's not the typical boy though. Under the passive persona, lies the heart of a half vampire child. After coming home to find out his parents are dead, Vlad has to grow up early. Now add a killer vapire after him, a friend of his dad and trying not to bite someones kneck, you have high school drama, fang style. The story here teaches you the value of freindship and how far it will go. How to trust someone, even if it causes old scars to throb. The characters inhabit your mind and the story leaves you comparing them to yoursef. This new version vampire story will leave you wanting to sink your fangs into more.
