This book blew my mind! Lexington Bartleby is a great character, and throughout the story I really got attached to her! She is dark,hilarious, and tells everybody exactly what she thinks of them!
The book starts out in a principals office, where Lex is being scolded for biting a boy who called her a "wannabe vampire." But was Lex listening to her elder's remarks? No, of course not! Instead she was wondering what her Principals head would look like on a giant wooden spear...which pretty much sums up our spunky protagonist!
What i think makes this book so amazing is that it completely lacks that slow, boring beginning that most books tend to have. It starts off running, and doesn't stop in till the very end!
Everything about this story is captivating! The plot, the characters, and the little town of Croak were all wonderful! I really couldn't put the book down!! At the end of every chapter I was like..
intill I was finished with the whole book!
What i hope stay consistent throughout the series is Lex's kick-butt attitude! But overall I recommend this book!! It's entertaining throughout the entire novel, and have I mentioned that its absolutely pee your pants hilarious? Because it is!
Oh, and by the way...I absolutely adore Driggs!
