Waiting on Wednesday (5)
TITLE: Team Human
AUTHOR: Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan
GENRE: vampires, urban fantasy
SUMMARY FROM BOOK: When a vampire shows up at Mel’s high school, it’s up to Mel to keep her best friend from falling in love with him. Add a mysterious disappearance, a cranky vampire cop, a number of unlikely romantic entanglements, and the occasional zombie, and soon Mel is hip-deep in an adventure that is equal parts hilarious and poignant.
Release Date: July 3rd
WHY I'M EAGER: While I haven't been overall impressed by Larbalestier I did really like Demon's Lexicon and frankly this story sounds right up my ally in that it makes fun of the vampire genre in a loving way. It just looks very meta and I frankly love meta books like Princess Bride and whatnot. It sounds like I'll at least get a kick out of this.
