Boys That Bite by Mari Mancusi

Meet Sunshine and Rayne McDonald, twin sisters who have identical features but totally different personalities. Sunny likes the spotlight; Rayne prefers the nightlife. While perky Sunny wears trendy clothes and wants to star in the school musical, sarcastic Rayne dresses in black and wants to become a vampire.

There's just one small problem. Magnus, the vampire with the killer British accent who was supposed to sire Rayne, accidentally bit Sunny instead. Now Sunny has seven days to find a way to reverse things and get her life back - literally - or she'll be a vampire for all time.

This book has the silliness of the movie Buffy the Vampire Slayer while often commenting on its television counterpart. In this story, though, the vampire slayer is not all that attractive or healthy, that the vampire leader is too adorable and childlike to seem vicious, and the Holy Grail is key to the reversal of vampirism. The story will make you chuckle more than scream, and the amount of pop culture references far outweighs the number of bites. Boys That Bite by Mari Mancusi is a quick, light read that will appeal to teens and adults who like supernatural comedies.
