Type: YA Vampire/Mystery; Paperback
Status: My Bookshelf; 2nd in The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod
Summary:Freshman year sucks for Vlad Tod. Bullies still harass him. The photographer from the school newspaper is tailing him. And failing his studies could be deadly. A trip to Siberia gives "study abroad" a whole new meaning as Vlad connects with other vampires and advances his mind-control abilities, but will he return home with the skills to recognize a vampire slayer when he sees one? In this thrilling sequel to Eighth Grade Bites, Vlad must confront the secrets of the past and battle forces that once again threaten his life. Find out why author D. J. MacHale calls The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod "Gruesome, heartwarming, spellbinding."
My Review: When I finished the 1st I had to read this! It was a lot more mature and it had more "cool stuff". I don't know another way to say it. And I feel in love with some of the next characters! But what is so cute is the attraction between Vlad and Meredith. It's soooooooooo middle school crush and it shows that Vlad is human! lol
Exert: Joss had sulked the rest of the day, but Vlad wasn't about to apologize. Joss has broken the biggest best friend code there was: thou shalt not date the girl that thy best friend has a crush on. - pg. 100
Cover/Title: The cover seems more scarier and it fits. Once again, the title is flawless.
