The Reformed Vampire Support Group, by Catherine Jinks

Any teacher wanting to explore point of view should consider this book. Yes, it is about Vampires but, they...
  • live in Australia
  • do not have super powers
  • are sick and listless much of the time
Jinks makes this humorous vampire novel come to life. Yes, the Cullins family has made the Northwest US safe, but still are awesome. The Australian vampires in the Reformed Vampire Support Group are exploring group therapy as a way to deal with their many limitations and get control over their cravings.

I enjoyed every moment of the book. Especially if you are not a fantasy fan, this is a book you can share with the adolescents in your life. Even the most hard-core team Jacob or team Edward fan will enjoy this alternative view of vampire and werewolf cultures.
