 SUMMARY
(from Amazon)
Senior year is supposed to be fun: boys, dances and graduation. It's significantly harder to enjoy it when you're dead.
Thanks to an innocent game of Truth or Dare, I wound up sleeping in a graveyard. Probably not the brightest thing I've ever done, but thanks to a couple of well-placed fangs, I'm here to tell the tale.
Vampires might stalk pop culture, but they’re just myths, right? Yeah. Not so much...
Everything seems a lot more difficult when you’re a nocturnal creature of the night, especially school. I was managing, but couldn't keep it hidden from my friends. Steph decided that we should be cool, like superheroes, and fight crime.
I’m a vampire, not a hero. Living in a sleepy New England town, crime is a little harder to come by. At least it is until a serial killer moves into the area. He’s got the authorities stumped, but then again, the cops don’t have a teenage, blood-sucking, non-hero on their team. It doesn't take long for me to discover the world is full of monsters. I may be one of them…but will I turn out to be the hero, or the killer everyone is looking for

 REVIEW
This book is a fantasy novel by J.A. Campbell for YA. The reader goes back to being a high school senior.   You might be hangin' with a couple of your best friends, dreaming about prom, doing that dreaded homework and scarfing down on junk food.  Just a normal teenage.  Megan goes to a sleepover and takes a\up a dare.  Visit the cemetery at night.  The all out dreaded dare.  Megan goes to the cemetery and gets attacked.  She makes it through the attack but doesn't remember much.  She doesn't like the sunlight.  She sleeps a lot during the day and is having trouble with food.Instead of wanting food, it seems that everybody she knows appeals to her taste buds. Reality settles in on Meghan. She realizes what she is.  There is no one to help her, so she is trying to handle this on her own. While she is learning how to deal with this, she knows she must keep it a secret.  The trouble is, those close to her are becoming aware that there is something going on with Megan. Then, things become more dangerous when a stranger comes to town.

The author wrote a book that has characters that are described to be so realistic. The author didn't go over board with the descriptions. She just made them realistic. They sound like everyday teens. The reader wasn't bogged down with too much information that really wasn't necessary.  Sometimes all those adjectives are fill in words.  That becomes boring after a while.
The book is narrated in first person, Megan. The main character was written to be a strong willed young woman who is trying her best to deal with a very bad situation.The isn't your usual YA book.  There aren't two boys seeking one girl's attention.  The romance didn't include Megan but a couple of characters that were fill ins.  What a wonderful read.  The plot is about one main person and that is Megan who becomes a vampire.The story is actually very believable, especially for the readers who are vampire lovers. There are a lot of questions left unanswered, which makes me think there may be a Book Two.  The reader is left wanting answers and I hope the author writes another book to answer some of those questions.  I loved the tittle of the book.  How appropriate. So if you love those blood sucking little devils, grab yourself a copy and enter into the teen age vampire world.

   I was given a complimentary copy of SENIOR YEAR BITES from the author, G.A.Campbell for my view of the book. No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 4 VAMPIRE LIPS.
