Genre: Humorous YA Sci-Fi
Gilbert Garfinkle is the ultimate tech geek. He has a compulsive need to take apart, figure out, and fix things; and he dreams of one day fixing the world. But a funny thing happens on the way to the future. Gilbert encounters the one thing he'll never be able to figure out: a gorgeous, teenage vampire girl named Amber, who wants to turn Gilbert into her platonic BFF--literally forever! This leaves the ultimate geek pondering life's ultimate question: "Why me?"
This book was totally fun for me to read. It was different from the book I have been reading but it was right up my alley. Being a geeky gamer person myself I totally fell in love with this book. What was great is that from the first couple of pages author Shevi Arnold grabbed my attention and kept me turning the page. I love the idea of this geeky and totally lovable guy being bitten by a vampire. It was fun and totally funny too.
I felt that the characters were very well written and their personalities fit each of the character and they acted as they should. Sometimes characters and their personalities don't fit or it feels like something is off but not in this book. Everything came together and fit perfectly into this amazingly written gem of a book. Highly recommend to geeks and gamers alike but also to the none geeks out there too.

About the Author
Shevi Arnold writes funny. She can't help it. She's been writing funny since she was a kid, cracking up her class and her teachers with her humorous essays.
In high school she studied sitcoms when she was supposed to be doing her homework, and in college she took a couple of courses in comedy and clowning, as part of her degrees in English Literate and Theater Studies. She just had to find out what made something funny.
Eventually she cracked the code, and that led to jobs as a political cartoonist, a comic-strip magazine editor, and an arts-and-entertainment writer specializing in children's entertainment and, of course, comedy.
