Jane Jones: Worst. Vampire. Ever.

Jane Jones: Worst. Vampire. Ever. - Caissie St. Onge OVERALL IMPRESSION: This was a cute book. I was afraid that it was going to be a little too cutesy with too much high school drama, but that wasn't the case at all. The book has the typical story line of the girl desperately wanting to fit in with the 'cool' crowd, but there's a twist that vampires are involved. I think this book is great for anyone who wants to read a quick book that is actually a good book as well.

CHARACTERS: The main character of the book is Jane. She is a vampire, but she has a rare disease that she is blood-intolerant. She uses humor to overcome her problems and insecurities and it works for her. She was enjoyable to read about. One of my favorite characters in the book is Zachary. Zachary is Jane's younger brother and he is the perfect little brother. The siblings get in spats from time to time, but they seem to get along really well. Zachary is even trying to help out his sister by trying to create a cure for Jane's blood intolerance. There are two main male characters in the story--Eli, the human geeky type that Jane gets paired up with for a project in school, and Timothy, the cool vampire that Jane has had a crush on. Between the two character, I prefer Eli. It just seems like him and Jane click better and work very well together.

COVER: The cover of the book is very simple, but I like it. It conveys the overall feeling of the book. It's cute, but not over the top cute.
