reformed.jpg The Reformed Vampire Support Group by Catherine Jinks
Review by Mikayla, 11th Grade, Cloverdale
You know most people think of vampires as romantic, sexy, powerful beings.  Truth is though…They’re Not!  Honestly.  Vampires are dead.  And the ones that don’t want to end up staked like Casimir, well they have to admit they have a problem.  Stop fanging people, and join a support group.  Just ask Nina.  She was fanged at 15 and hasn’t aged since 1973.   Now the highlight of her eternal life is her Tuesday Night group meeting.  But when Casimir is staked things start to get way more interesting.  Nina, Dave, and Father Ramon set out on a journey to find Casimir’s killer.  Although they have a little trouble along the way.  Such as illegal were-wolf fights, and the owners of the ring don’t take to kindly to strangers.  When they finally…well now I’m just ruining the story.  You want to know more?  Go read the book!
