Freshman year sucks for Vlad Tod. Bullies still harass him. The photographer from the school newspaper is tailing him. And failing his studies could be deadly.
A trip to Siberia gives "study abroad" a whole new meaning as Vlad connects with other vampires and advances his mind-control abilities, but will he return home with the skills to recognize a vampire slayer when he sees one?
In this thrilling sequel to Eighth Grade Bites, Vlad must confront the secrets of the past and battle forces that once again threaten his life.

"Gruesome, heartwarming, spellbinding." (D. J. MacHale)
The story is a decent one, but the narrator truly makes it fantastic! He does a great job at expressing each character as I imagined they would have acted/sounded when I was reading it.
I thought this book was even better than the first and so did the 8th grade students I read it with. Kevin Pariseau's reading is fantastic. I only have one question. When is he going to read Tenth Grade Bleeds?
I purchased this book when it was half off so I think it was well worth it. It's not as good as the first book but it was still enjoyable. It's hard not to like Vladimir.
