The Reformed Vampire Support Group by Catherine Jinks

Nina Harrison became a vampire in 1973, when she was fifteen, and she hasn't aged a day since then. But she hasn't had any fun, either; she still lives with her mum, and the highlight of her sickly, couchbound life is probably her Tuesday-night group meeting, which she spends with a miserable bunch of fellow sufferers, being lectured at. But then one of the group is mysteriously turned to ashes . . . and suddenly they're all under threat. That's when Nina decides to prove that every vampire on earth isn't a weak, pathetic loser. Along with her friend Dave, she hunts down the culprit ─ and soon finds herself up against some gun-toting werewolf traffickers who'll stop at nothing. Can a bunch of feeble couch potatoes win a fight like this? Is there more to your average vampire than meets the eye (from the publisher)?
This is a great book that has a lot of fun with the vampire genre that doesn't take itself too seriously. But it will bust a few myths some may have about vampires. And then there are the werewolves - for all the time I have spent in Cobar over the years, I never knew about the werewolves... You may never look at a guinea pig in the same way again either.
Rating - I give this 5/5 GREAT!!
Get this from the library
