Reality Bites- Tales of a Half-Vampire is another Fang-tastic book. While a quick read I couldn’t stop reading once I had started. This book reminded me of the Vladimir Todd series in the fact that the main charter is a half vampire trying to fit in. You tend to really feel for Mackenzie as she has so much trouble with her goal to just be normal as her family is full of the supernatural. I can’t wait to read what Shaunda Kennedy Wenger has in store for the next book. I am definitely looking forward to it. Also those who have read anything by Kelly Armstrong will find that this is a must read.
Mackenzie is just trying to seem like a normal run of the mill girl, but its not working out to well for her. With a family full of things like vampire’s, witches and werewolves (Oh My!) she gets used to not fitting in. Dressing for a dance is hard enough as it is but for Mackenzie trying to dress up for her schools Halloween dance is way harder than it should be. Can Mackenzie make it to the dance looking how she wants to and will she finally get the chance to talk to you know who or will it all come crashing down around her?
From the award-winning author of THE GHOST IN ME, REALITY BITES is the vampire book young teens have been waiting for!
Growing up in a family of vampires, witches, werewolves, and other assorted embarrassments can be tough on a girl who is just trying to be normal and fit in. When the school plans a Halloween ball, dressing up proves to be a lot harder than it should. Mackenzie has high hopes to at least talk with the boy she likes, but first she has to make it out of the house ALIVE, or at least looking like she's not Half-Dead. What is a "good" girl to do? When reality bites, it make take more than a little bit of family magic to see her through.
