Overview

Erin has bigger worries than how she'll do on her Trig Final. A vampire bit her and she's turning into an Undead. Things could be worse, though. It cleared her complexion, she can fly, and now her parents have to let her go out at night. And being a vampire is great for freaking out her little sister. The downside?

Overview

Erin has bigger worries than how she'll do on her Trig Final. A vampire bit her and she's turning into an Undead. Things could be worse, though. It cleared her complexion, she can fly, and now her parents have to let her go out at night. And being a vampire is great for freaking out her little sister. The downside? Besides being dead, of course--and having to drink blood smoothies--was having to give up tanning and pizza. And with her new edgy Goth look, jet-black hair and porcelain skin, everyone tells Erin she's become beautiful. So much so that the other girls in school have started calling her names--like 'Fang Face.' Erin wouldn't mind checking her new look for herself. But as everyone knows?Vampires can't see their reflections!

Editorial Reviews

New York Times bestseller of Jake Ransom and the Skull King's Shadow - James Rollins
Hilarious, lightning-paced, and as sharp about high school as a bite to the throat. I loved this book, fangs, and all.
Author of James Bond, The Union Trilogy - Raymond Benson
FANG FACE made me laugh, and I'm not a Teen. Or perhaps I am, but I'm trapped in a grown-up's body.
National Bestselling thriller author - Shane Gericke
This book sucks...in a most delightful way! Norm Cowie's latest is boy-meets-girl-meets-vampire-meets-wow. Don't miss this gem.

    8 out of 10 stars!

    Fang Face is probably the first humor novel I've ever read. I never really knew what "funny" was before I read it (my tenth grade Advanced Honors English teacher told me that Charles Dickens was funny...not that I agree in the least, but Norm Cowie is probably twice the comedian he is. Word). His style is captivating; once you pick it up, you can't put it down, and his wit is literally laugh-out-loud amusing. I had the wonderful opportunity to read and review this delight, that the author sent to me, himself.
    I'll have to admit, it sounds a tad cliché. When I read the blurb, I rolled my eyes and said, "Oh, God. Not another vampire novel." But I take that all back now. Fang Face is NOT just another vampire novel. Well, it is another vampire novel, but it's not all romancy and tragic like the Moonlight series or whatever it's called. See, Fang Face has lovable characters, an actual point to its plot, and the ability to make me laugh with the turn of every page.

    I could relate to Erin a lot. She's just a typical high school girl, unnoticed and unnoticing. She's nice but not innocent; pretty, but not gorgeous. She does nothing to deserve turning into an Undead --an everliving bloodsucker-- and yet she still does, when a sly vampire manages to bite her one day.

    The story does not revolve around Erin, however. This story revolves around Ian Trug, who is described as "quite possibly the ugliest kid in the entire country" by the first sentence of the book. Immediately, Cowie makes Trug the most lovable character in the book, if not physically, sympathetically.

    For me, there was a little too much sarcasm. I used to think that I was the most sarcastic person in the world (I'm not), but this book definitely topped me :) It was entertaining though; nice to be able to laugh at a book every once in a while. Nonetheless, the style was very moving and kept me at the edge of my feet at all times. There was a perfect balance of humor, anguish, and affliction through the novel.

    Rating: 8 hearts- Would recommend to lots of really good friends. ????????

    This is an amusing teen vampire tale

    Her biggest issues had been math and acne until the bite. Now Erin's most pressing problem is how to explain to her parents that just because she is a vampire, she does not want to sleep in a coffin especially a coke bottle shaped coffin. She admits to herself the benefits of healthy undead living include perfect skin, flying like a bird, scaring the crap out of her obnoxious younger sister Alex who had voted for cremation as the resolution to the family problem of having one of them being of a different blood type, and going out at night knowing you are safe.

    Ironically her Undead complexion apparently is in as everyone says she never looked better; perhaps not eating pizza helps. The girls at school are jealous of Fang Face as they call her because the boys want to exchange hickeys with her. Erin's deepest regret is now that she is a porcelain Goth beauty she cannot see how she looks as she has no reflection.

    This is an amusing teen vampire tale that will remind readers more of the movie My Best Friend Is a Vampire than Twilight as Norm Cowie provides a tongue in cheek behind the overbite family drama. With a lighthearted jocularity and a somewhat anemic story line, Erin, her family, friends and fans learn the advantages and disadvantages of being a blood sucker while answering the most critical Undead question of all - can vampires cry?
