This book follows the characters from Bloodsucking Fiends and You Suck!, but in no way do you really need to read those first. It would help for background, but it has been years since I have read them and I got right into the story. First off, I had issues with Moore's last release Fool but this totally redeems him in my eyes. This story is pure snarky fun and I may have to go back and read it again since some of the one liners are so special. I don't know how old Moore is but he nails "Abby speak" the voice of a teen age wannabe vampire who blogs. The story is told through her diary posts and then through a few other characters. The story kicks butt and is just a super fun way to spend a day.
