Publisher Comments:

Mina Hamilton's parents want her dead. (Or undead to be precise.) They're vampires, and like it or not, Mina must decide whether to become a vampire herself. But Mina's more interested in hanging out with best friend Serena and trying to catch the eye of the too-hot-for-high-school Nathan Able than in the vampire training classes she's being forced to take.

How's a girl supposed to find the perfect prom date and pass third-year French when her mom and dad are breathing down her neck — literally?

Sucks to be Me by Kimberly Pauley gave us a different approach to the whole vampire craze. Mina, the protagonist, isn't a vampire to start with or the girl who wants to be a vampire/wants to be with a vampire. Instead, she's a normal girl who is forced to choose whether or not she wants to be converted. With Mina, you get a pretty strong female lead in that she knows who she is and isn't afraid of standing up to others. While she suffers from the typical girl problems of a teenager, she finds a way to persevere. One of the really good aspects of this book was Mina's support system. I felt they were well-developed and were interesting. I kept wanting to see her interactions with them and to learn more about them. An area I felt suffered because of all the other things going on in the novel was Mina's relationships with the boys in her life. Pauley didn't really show the development of her feelings in much detail, such as her crush on Nathan slowly disappearing and her crush on George developing more. However, I would recommend this book--easy to get through and entertaining enough.

Although usually I find vampire books kind of annoying, I loved Sucks to Be Me, by Kimberly Pauley. Mina is a teenage girl whose parents are vampires. She has always known this, and it is just a fact in her life. She has to decide whether or not to become a vampire��"and to do so begins to attend classes to help her make an informed choice. It wasn’t the typical vampire book, and one of my favorite things about it was how the vampires were portrayed more, well, realistically. And yes, obviously vampires aren’t real, but in this book the vampires weren’t completely superhuman. For example, they don’t ‘not age’; they just age ‘really, really slowly’. I greatly enjoyed reading this book. All in all, I would definitely read this book again.
