Fang Girl by Helen Keeble Book Review

Fang Girl by Helen Keeble 
Publisher: Harper Teen
Published Date: September 11th, 2012
Genre: Young Adult, Humor, Paranormal
Purchase Links: Amazon/Barnes & Noble

Things That Are Destroying Jane Greene’s Undead Social Life Before It Can Even Begin:

1) A twelve-year-old brother who’s convinced she’s a zombie.
2) Parents who are begging her to turn them into vampires.
3) The pet goldfish she accidentally turns instead.
4) Weird superpowers that let her rip the heads off of every other vampire she meets.(Sounds cool, but it doesn’t win you many friends.)
5) A psychotic vampire creator who’s using her to carry out a plan for world domination.

And finally:
6) A seriously ripped vampire hunter who either wants to stake her or make out with her. Not sure which.

Being an undead, eternally pasty fifteen-year-old isn’t quite the sexy, brooding, angst-fest Jane always imagined....

Helen Keeble’s riotous debut novel combines the humor of Vladimir Tod with Ally Carter’s spot-on teen voice. With a one-of-a-kind vampire mythology and an irresistibly relatable undead heroine, this uproarious page-turner will leave readers bloodthirsty for more.

5 out of 5 stars

Fang girl was so fun to read. It was a unique take on the whole drawn out vampire theme, taking out all the bloodthirst and gore and leaving a fun filled story about the unplanned turning of a teenaged vampire crazed girl.

The main character is a spunky vampire loving teenager that wakes up six feet under as a vampire. Its startling and starts off with a bang. I loved it. It wasn't filled with romantic encounters or typical teenaged angst but it had all the qualities that a good book should have. The characters were down right amusing. I chuckled quite a bit while reading this book.

The ending was sort of continual in that you can only imagine what happens next. It leaves open the option for a part two but it doesn't leave you hanging like a cliff hanger. There were some interesting surprises and revelations at the end so its something to look forward to.

This is a good book for anyone who enjoys novels about vampires but could do without the guts and gore.
