AJ is starting Grade 6 and he feels like the only person in his class who is exactly the same as he was last year. On top of that, he still has a crush on Nia and he still can't work up the courage to talk to her. When they get paired up to work on a research project on Transylvania, AJ decides to make himself a bit more like the guys in the TV shows and books Nia loves, which means pretending he's a vampire. This plan only goes downhill when it turns out that Nia's interest in vampires isn't so much about hanging out with them, and more about slaying them!

I had so much fun reading this graphic novel. The art was really well done and very engaging; the pop culture and bookish references made me so happy; and the characters were diverse and endlessly charming, especially AJ's quirky and hilarious older sister. I hope that there are more of these coming soon!
