Doug is a fifteen year old vampire. The details of the night he was turned are still fuzzy, but he and his best friend Jay are convinced that reading Dracula is the best way to learn about his vampirism. When that turns out not to be enough, Doug is stoked to hear from the local head vampire and is issued a vampire tutor. This is all fine and dandy, of course, but Doug still has to deal with all of the regular trials of high school. He is a major dork, and now that he is a vampire, all hope of turning into something cool is gone. On top of that, there's a new foreign student named Sejal, and Doug is in love. All of a sudden, Doug's life is full of things he never thought possible before!



I totally fell in love with the cover of this book before I even knew what the story was about- a great visual! First and foremost, Fat Vampire is  hilarious. Adam Rex is a very funny writer, and he writes some very funny dialog. i like books with humor and a new twist to an overused topic.
