Doug "Meatball" Lee is no Edward, he's just a 15-year-old dork trying to land a date with a real live girl, any girl. But when you're a weight-challenged, newbie vampire, finding a Bella to call your very own presents some real challenges.
Okay well to start this off, the title was the first thing to get my attention. Come on! Has anyone ever heard of a fat vampire before. Because I hadn't.Second was the cover itself. It just made me laugh. I have never seen a blood smoothie.
Through this book is the story of how a vampire struggles to fit in because of one thing...his weight. Many people have problems like this and they face struggles through their life that can push them away from doing things that other people are more capable of doing. For example: his feeding.
The help that he was able to get with his mentor was a moment that help him become a better vampire. However, in becoming a more evolved vampire his mind got to the better of him and he became bad. I lost my respect for him when he decided to get a girl and treat with the disrespect that he presented to her. Although he did lose my respect I do believe in second chances. In the end he went after to his friends attacker and I saw him as a hero.
The idea that this book was written in a male point of view and also by a male author. I am truly honored to have read this book. I recommend that all people read this book.
I give this book 5 souls!
