Summary: Things That Are Destroying Jane Greene’s Undead Social Life Before It Can Even Begin:

1) A twelve-year-old brother who’s convinced she’s a zombie.
2) Parents who are begging her to turn them into vampires.
3) The pet goldfish she accidentally turns instead.
4) Weird superpowers that let her rip the heads off of every other vampire she meets.(Sounds cool, but it doesn’t win you many friends.)
5) A pyschotic vampire creator who’s using her to carry out a plan for world domination.

And finally:
6) A seriously ripped vampire hunter who either wants to stake her or make out with her. Not sure which.

Being an undead, eternally pasty fifteen-year-old isn’t quite the sexy, brooding, angst-fest Jane always imagined....

Helen Keeble’s riotous debut novel combines the humor of Vladimir Tod with Ally Carter’s spot-on teen voice. With a one-of-a-kind vampire mythology and an irresistibly relatable undead heroine, this uproarious page-turner will leave readers bloodthirsty for more.

My Thoughts: This was a weird one. It was interesting enough just weird. It started off with Jane in a cemetery in her own grave, waking up. She starts to be dug up but her sire gets chased away. The first thing she does once she is out of her grave is go see her family.  This could be quite scary but it really wasn’t. Can you imagine being dead and then going to see your family? What would they think or say?

Jane was a fun character. She’s a 15 year old girl who is sassy and thinks it's pretty cool to be a vampire, it sure beats being dead. And her adorable brother. He was so adorable. He basically thought it was awesome for Jane to be back.

A fellow vampire comes to Jane’s rescue and starts telling her that her sire is bad news and she shouldn’t trust her. She needs to trust him. His name was Ebon and he was very very old. He was really unique but I never really could relate to him very much. And, there was a vampire hunter named Van Helsing. Yep, that is really his name. He was out to kill all vampires including Jane, even if she hadn’t killed anyone yet.

Basically, Jane and her family must decide who to trust and who to try to get away from. Jane has a lot of tough decisions to make regarding her new existence.

Fang Girl was a funny novel but probably not something I would usually read if I wasn’t in the mood for funny. I’m more of a contemporary romance reader. There was a sprinkle of romance throughout the novel, so it kept me happy enough.

Read this novel, if you’re in the mood for something light and funny.

Overall: Fang Girl was an interesting book. It was very very funny. It was also kind of cheesy, but not really in a bad way. You have to go into this one with an open mind.  I bet you will end up laughing a few times! Oh, and the Goldfish! Super cute! I liked the way this novel ended. Fang Me is probably a 3.5 cupcake novel for me. I didn't love everything about it, but it had its moments. I thought it was funny enough to make me laugh!   

Cover: Like it. It draws your attention enough to want to read it.

I've been seeing this around a lot. The cover kind of throws me off, but I've heard some good reviews on it.

I think I may pick it up one day for a laugh. Great review!
