    2. ** originally posted at bunnycates **I actually hadn’t planned on reading this book yet. I just popped it open to see if it was signed, since the author sent it to me directly, and somehow…I got sucked in. Before I realized what I was doing I was on page 30. haha. (My reading updates on )This story follows Mackenzie, a seventh grader, who also happens to be half vampire. All she wants to do is be “normal” and go to her schools Halloween Ball. Unfortunately, her family has some strong tra [...]

    3. A cute story about a normal girl growing up in a very abnormal family. Not too preachy, and with a likably unlikeable main character - Mackenzie is precisely as whiny and self-centered as a junior high girl should be, and with the right amount of distaste for what's normal in her family and pining for a "normal" life. That's what made the story most enjoyable - the utter verisimilitude of the pre-teen main character. It's a bit of a fluffy little froth otherwise, but the idea of a vampire's daug [...]

    4. It came today! I am SO excited to read this this weekend! I just LOVE Miss Shaunda's books! MUST DOA.S.A.P.oh my gosh!!! Already LOVE IT! I love how she sucks me in before I get to Chapter 1!Soon as I get my computer to cooperate I'll finish this! Poof!Chapter 1. Oh no, I've licked one of my cutsw I'm worried about me!I love how kids are "almost" to their birthday, the day AFTER their birthday.2. How does she put lipstick on if she doesn't have a reflection?! So how will this play out? Will Mack [...]

    5. Just when you think you've met embarrassing parents you read this book. Lol I loved the fact that Shaunda Kennedy Wenger's main character is a half-vampire! The half-vampire thing hasn't been used very often in fact I think the only other book with one is the Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn. However I truly fell in love with Mackenzie Bonapart and hope for some more books following her! Mackenzie's mom was always great at dressing her up in messed up Halloween costumes (dead mouse, run over frog, et [...]

    6. "The Difficulties of Being Half Vampire"This is truly a vibrant story written by Author Shaunda Kennedy Wenger. It is a perfect young-adult novel that teens will thoroughly enjoy. Mackenzie, almost 13 years old, and in the 7th Grade, is the daughter of Queen Mother Vampirea true vampire who always inspires her daughter to dress appropriately for Halloween. Mom's definition of 'cute' is blood, missing body parts, skeletons, and even a dead Minnie Mouse! Mackenzie thinks of herself as a mutant sin [...]

    7. Mackenzie is a half vampire with a whole problemher wacky family. The 12 year old is planning to go to her school's Halloween Ball as a pretty mermaid princess. Except that her family have an unbreakable rule, costumes for this holiday must be gruesome, bloody and represent the macabre side of the festival. Her crazy family includes an evil witch called Aunt Wilma, creepy cousin Drake, and Albert, a fully functional skeleton who interacts with them all year and hangs from their porch every Oct 3 [...]

    8. 4 ****Reality Bites by Shaunda Kennedy Wenger is so funny, & the fact that most teen girls feel like a freak at times, just as the main character, makes the book totally believable with a fun twist. This opinion packed book from 12 year old Mackenzie's point of view is smash up crazy with vampires, witches, skeletal relatives hanging around plus the horrors of puberty lingering. Mackenzie is half vampire/ half human & her vamp mother won't allow her to dress in a beautiful "girlie" costu [...]

    9. *I received this for free from First Reads*Entertaining YA read about a teenage girl in a family of witches, vampires, and various other unnatural beings. She just wants to be a normal girl but her family isn't about to allow that. It's Halloween time and her school is having a Halloween ball and all she wants is to dress like a pretty mermaid and talk to her crush without looking like a fool. The problem is her family has a very strict rule regarding Halloween costumes, and her mother especial [...]

    10. This book was an awesome YA read. I can't wait for my daughter to read it. I had to laugh out loud several times. Or at least smile. I hope I don't embrass her, but I know that is my job, as is every mothers job. But I can't imagine being Queen MV and not embrassing your daugther. I really enjoyed this book and suggest it to all young readers.

    11. This book is definitely geared toward the middle school crowd. A light, fun read, worth the read for those adults who want to take a stroll down memory lane and remember the angst of not quite fitting in, with a paranormal twist thrown in.

    12. This is probably middle-grade fiction more than young adult fiction. The writing is very young and full of attitude. It's from the perspective of a 7th grade girl who's mom is a vampire, dad a human, and all her relatives are various magical creatures and beings. She's living in suburban America, terribly put-upon by her family's goulish preferences. She just wants to dress up as a princess for Halloween - not a dead zombie princess or any thing else disgusting. Eventually, she comes into her po [...]

    13. Quick, easy read with all sorts of mythical/paranormal beings: vampires, werewolves, witches, mermaids, live-mummies, ghost, etc.Very straightforward and simple read, as long as you can keep track of the family members. Relationships are fairly realistic for middle school-res (my guess at their ages).

    14. A very sweet book with a wacky cast of characters. Great for the intended middle school (middle grade) audience!
