High school totally bites when you’re half human, half vampire.

Freshman year sucks for Vlad Tod. Bullies still harass him. The photographer from the school newspaper is tailing him. And failing his studies could be deadly. A trip to Siberia gives “study abroad” a whole new meaning as Vlad connects with other vampires and advances his mind-control abilities, but will he return home with the skills to recognize a vampire slayer when he sees one? In this thrilling sequel to Eighth Grade Bites, Vlad must confront the secrets of the past and battle forces that once again threaten his life. Find out why author D. J. MacHale calls The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod “Gruesome, heartwarming, spellbinding.”

            Vladimir Tod is back and he is now in Ninth grade and it is gonna be an interesting year. . . Bill & Ton are still total jerks/ Bullies (Which I so don't get vlad is totally awesome.). Henry is still his best friend and he is now a "Drudge" (meaning basically Vlad can control Henry easy, read the first book) Henrys cousin Joss is coming to stay (🤔) for awhile. He and Vlad hit it of pretty good and easily become friends. Oh and can't forget about about the photographer of the school newspaper notices Vlads purple shine in his eyes and becomes a little suspicious/scared. Otis, Vlads Uncle, invites him to come to Siberia and train and connects with other vampires. And with all this happening can Vlad recognize the vampire slayer that's hunting or why he is hunting him or even find out who hired the slayer? Absolutely Amazing Book! I couldn't stop reading, I love the mix of humor and the characters are so life-like. Anyways thanks for reading - Ajg15's Reviews 🤓✍

                  It's really not inappropriate unless like blood or whatever is considered inappropriate (but I mean it is a vampire book So...)
