Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Patricia Williamson
Tamara Summers has produced a vampire book that is all about girls, mystery and intrigue. The story is told from the point of view of Kira, a vampire who is just a normal teen—sort of. Kira arrives at school to find a dead body on the steps and sets out to find a killer. She narrows it down to a few boys, all who are, according to Kira, "hot." During the course of her investigation, she must date them all. Kira's point of view is very much like that of a teen today, and her perspectives about high school and life are edgy, yet really simple. Any girl who is interested in boys and vampires will enjoy this quick read of a book. The mystery, while evident, is actually not the main event; rather, it is an underlying plot device that holds the story together. In fact, it is the teen relationships that Kira forms that are the basis for the story. During the course of this book, Kira finds her true love and solves the mystery. They all live happily ever after. Reviewer: Patricia Williamson

Kira's in a bit of a situation. She's a vampire, and one of her classmates was just found dead with obvious fang marks in his neck. Now, her guardians think she's the culprit, even though she didn't do it. Since no one believes her, Kira decides to solve the issue on her own. She has three suspects, all of whom happen to be very cute. Will Kira fall for the killer, or learn his identity in time? NEVER BITE A BOY ON THE FIRST DATE is another fun addition to the world of vampire fiction. While it didn't blow me away, I had fun while I was reading it. It's a cute romantic comedy with a vampire twist. Kira was a solid main character. She was funny, nice, and easy to relate to. The three boys in her life were all quite enticing, as well. They were sweet and livened up the story, but I found them to be somewhat indistinguishable. Each one blended into the other while I was reading. The plot moved along quickly enough as Kira tried to solve the murder in time while keeping her wits about her. I had no idea who the killer was until the very end. I had suspicions about the real killer in the very beginning, but completely forgot about them until the end. I liked the guesswork involved in this book and was glad it wasn't too predictable. Though a bit too much on the light side for my liking, this is a quick read that will entertain young girls looking for more vampire fiction to devour.

This was a pretty good book with plenty of humor but there were some things that bugged me about Kira. 1. When she was turned into a vampire she had to leave her old life behind and begin a new life with her vampire "family". Throughout the whole book she really only mentioned her first family once or twice and she didn't seem too concerned with them. Like she didn't really care anymore- and that kinda annoyed me. and 2. Kira was interested in three boys, Daniel, Milo and Rowan. When Rowan was out of the picture she really started to like Milo- but that relationship was cut short and Kira was devastated, but then she realized she still had Daniel and went right on over to him and all was well. Like if she couldn't have Milo at least she had a back up. Overall, besides some of the parts I found annoying, this was a fun book with humor and mystery.
