Now that we’ve hit the month of August, it’s perfect beach weather, and who doesn’t enjoy reading a good book while catching a few rays? We’ve learned about two new novels coming out on August 14th from Random House that should fit the bill for DC readers and their kids.
SUCK IT UP AND DIE by Brian Meehl
Vegan vampire Morning McCobb is having a hard time adjusting to life as a “probie” firefighter. Add to that his “EB” (eternal beloved) just turned eighteen, and because of his vampirism he’s stuck as a sixteen-year-old. When an evil vampire returns with a thirst for blood, what will happen to Morning McCobb, one of the first vampires to come “out of the coffin” and ask the world to accept him as who he is? In his previous book Suck It Up, Meehl created a near future world, similar to “True Blood” for teens, where humans and vampires have a tenuous peace agreement. Morning McCobb is one of the first members of the International Vampire League to be “outed” and is the poster boy for social integration.

Can Scarlett really execute her grim plan? Or will it turn out to be a fatal and very messy mistake?
