Book Review: The Good Ghouls Guide to Getting Even and Good Ghouls Do

I read THE GOOD GHOULDS GUIDE TO GETTING EVEN a few years ago. I loved it. I had read Julie Kenner's adult series, and her writing was so funny, I decided to check out her YA series. I know there is an overwhelming amount of YA vamp books out there, but this is one of the best.


Elizabeth Frasier's ticked off. Her junior year of high school was going fine. Amazing grades. Early admission to college. And a date with the star quarterback. But no. Thanks to a bunch of jerkwad vampire jocks, she ended up dead. Or rather, undead, and with a thirst that a thousand Diet Cokes couldn't quench.

Now she's out for blood - and revenge. And she knows exactly what to do. Elizabeth's read Salem's Lot. Just wipe out the crowd that did her in. But with so many creeps in high school it's hard to separate the good vamps from the bad. On top of that, she's got to figure how to be mortal again. Unless universities start accepting dead girls...

I finally got around to reading GOOD GHOULS DO. It was even better than the first, but unfortunately there isn't another one after this... yet. And I have no clue when it'll come out. I don't want to say too much because it'll spoil the first, but big things happen, and there are huge questions that need answered, and I need book three now!

At least Beth Frasier's not the only vampire at Waterloo High. In fact, the bloodsucking seems to be catching on...
Waterloo's halls are teeming with them, all dominated by a Master that Beth was sure she'd killed. Being dead wrong about that is just one problem. She also feels bad about transforming her boyfriend into a Vamp. But honestly, ending his life was the only was to save ie. Now, on the ront-line of an all-out war between the living and the dead, Beth has a new survival plan - pretend to have the formula that allows Waterloo's vampires to survive under the sun. Making good on that promise before the real Master takes control is a lot of pressure for a young girl who wants only two things out of life - a boyfriend who doesn't bite, and one more chance to tan...
