Overview

1.My parents and the stupid Vampire Council are still ruining my death (ugh, whatever).
2.Not only did they make me fake my death and funeral (I didn’t even get to go!), but I had to leave behind my BFF Serena and move. Really far away.
3.Meanwhile my boyfriend George is off “reconnecting with his parents” in Brazil. Land of beaches, bikini babes, and the biggest party in the world. He’s probably going, “Mina, who?”
4.Grady asked to me Homecoming and won’t take no for an answer.
5.Did I mention cute but oh-so-complicated Cameron Carter, the only other bloodsucking teen in town? That’s because I’m trying not to think about him, thank you very much.
6.And ugh, Raven. Is she seriously stalking Serena?
7.But the absolute worst thing is that here I am, some all-powerful (ha), all-knowing (yeah, right), in-control (totally not) vampire and my parents still get to dictate everything I do.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
A light mystery, plenty of teenspeak and lists delineating the frustrations of protagonist 17-year-old Mina are on offer in this supernatural comedy that features some bright points but is mostly forgettable. A sequel to Sucks to Be Me (2009), this opens as Mina and her bloodsucking family is being moved to rural Louisiana by the Vampire Relocation Agency, much to Mina's chagrin. She quickly becomes entangled with Cameron, a gorgeous but secretive fellow vampire she fears may be part of a dark society that preys on humans. Mina's dry wit will make many a reader smirk, but in some instances it doesn't ring true, such as when she uses the tired, dated exclamation, "Not" to sarcastically negate a statement. The pacing, particularly in the middle section, is quite slow, serving to soften rather than sharpen the suspense in a plot that is already somewhat predictable. For a fresher, unique vampire comedy, teens might try Catherine Jinks's The Reformed Vampire Support Group (2009), but the light romance on offer here will undoubtedly have its fans. (Supernatural comedy. 12 & up)

    tops the previous!

    lets get rid of all that awkward "girl falls in love with vampipre, or vampire falls in love with vampire-hunter," and you get a fresh and innovative story! "Still sucks to be me," is a continuation of a witty series that to me is a (much needed) breath of fresh air. if you loved "sucks to be me," you'll love this one too! 4 stars baby!

    Great Sequel

    In Still Sucks To Be Me, we return to the world of Mina, the VRA, George and Serena. Mina's now a vampire. Now Mina is 'officially dead'-she and her family are forced by the VRA to move. She has to move to Louisiana, leaving behind her whole life-including Serena (her best friend). And to top it off, George (her boyfriend) is in Brazil. I liked this book because it seemed almost probable that it could happen. One thing I really liked about it is you didn't miss too much from where the last book ended. The book was written in a way in which Mina like a real teenager, and I enjoyed it. It was a fun read.
