Team Human - Sarah Rees Brennan, Justine Larbalestier So.... How to describe Team Human? I really am the wrong audience for this book, since vampire romance icks me out. It's a satire on the whole teen romance featuring brooding vampire hero's. Let's start with the good things. The writers of Team Human obviously know what they're doing. The characters feel fleshed out and the pacing is great. Everything else is rough. It's like they were so in love with certain ideas and everything had to make way for them. The conflict in the book is based on a friendship between Mel, the protagonist, and Cathy, the girl who falls in love with a vampire. Cathy falls head over heels fast for a guy that is mostly dead and decides she wants to be with him forever so she's going to become a vampire too. Mel thinks this is a terrible idea. Obviously Mel is just insensitive and she needs to learn to respect her friends choices. Mel and Cathy did not work for me at all. The only reason it felt like they were friends was because the authors kept telling us so. Cathy's decisions to be turned into a vampire at seventeen wasn't brave, it was stupid. Especially when the 2 out of 10 people trying it die. That's cancer high people. I'm really sad I decided to grab this book off the shelf and not one that actually was funny. If you're not already a fan of these authors, don't read this book.
