Team Human - Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan

Team Human seemed like an overrated vampire love story like any other. But as you read the first few pages, you realize that is isn't so.

I was pleasantly surprised to find out the leading female was actually not directly part of a vampire romance: the opposite, in fact. She dislikes vampires. With her sarcastic, funny narration, I was able to get deep into her mind. The characters are quirky, endearing, strange, and even amusing. The plot, well... it needs some work. I wasn't very sure of where the story was going. The other subplots seemed to overrun the main plot of the heroine stopping her best friend from dating a vamp.

A lighthearted read, with great characters but a jumbled plot. Great, quick read, for vamp-lovers and -haters.
