Confessions of an Average Half-Vampire Makes The Top Five!

Confessions of an Average Half-Vampire is still quite the draw for junior high kids. :D

Book hook:

Eric Wright is a half-vampire with a problem. Several problems, actually. He can’t tell his bloodlust from his rollercoaster adolescent hormones. The cutest girl in first period English wants him to become a vegetarian. And the assistant principal suspends him when he refuses to explain why his skin appears translucent in a school security video. Then Eric’s non-vampire mom, who’s definitely not telling everything she knows, takes him with her on a business trip. To Scotland, where it never stays sunny for very long. The perfect hang out for a vampire. Or several. If only Eric can find one to talk to before he makes any more stupid mistakes....

(Interested?  You can read reviews and buy it here on Amazon.)
Yes, it made the top five this week!  It's right behind the latest Diary of a Wimpy Kid book.

Oh, OK, so it's only in the top five at our school library, where all fifteen or so copies of the book got checked out within the first two days of school.  But, hey, at least I'm in the Top Five on our school's Destiny Media catalog.  It's good to be in the top five with my books anywhere.  :)

PS Becoming Brigid was completely wiped out in the library by day two also, but there are only 2 copies of that, and it's in the restricted section (for ninth-grade only, due to "mature subject matter"), so it didn't even crack the top ten.
