Today, July 3rd, is the publication day of one of my very favorite books of 2012 so far: Team Human by Sarah Rees Brennan and Justine Larbalestier. It's the story of a girl who doesn't like her BFF's new boyfriend . . . and to make matters worse, the boyfriend is a vampire. I had the opportunity to read an ARC, and it's SO GOOD YOU GUYS. You need to read it if you like vampires. (There are lots of clever little references to other vampire books, shows, etc.) Or if you don't like vampires - this is Team Human, after all. Or if you don't care about vampires one way or the other, but like stories about friendship, or first love, or social justice. Or funny things. Or mysteries. Basically, what I am saying is, read this book! To make it easy for you: there are links to a bunch of places to order the book or find it in a library right over here. Give it a try. It's the vampire book you never knew you always wanted.
(Full disclosure: I'm friendly with Sarah and know Justine's husband a little. But I would not say anything about the book I didn't mean!)
