Waiting on Wednesday (Week Thirty-Three)

Title: Fat Vampire: A Never Coming of Age Story
Author: Adam Rex
Publisher: Harperteen
Release Date: 6/29/2010

Doug Lee is undead quite by accident—attacked by a desperate vampire, he finds himself cursed with being fat and fifteen forever. When he has no luck finding some goth chick with a vampire fetish, he resorts to sucking the blood of cows under cover of the night. But it’s just not the same.
Then he meets the new Indian exchange student and falls for her—hard. Yeah, he wants to bite her, but he also wants to prove himself to her. But like the laws of life, love, and high school, the laws of vampire existence are complicated—it’s not as easy as studying Dracula. Especially when the star of Vampire Hunters is hot on your trail in an attempt to boost ratings.…
Leave it to Adam Rex to create a thought-provoking novel that takes on teen angst, sexuality, identity, love, and undeath in ways that break it out of the genre.
I want this book it looks so amazing. First off, how many fat vampires, have I read about? Let me think... zero. Plus it seems to have a romantic element. I think that this book might be like Vladimir Todd books.
