101 Tips for Traveling with a Vampire, Joleene Naylor

I chose to download this book because it was free, and at the time I am writing this, it still is. The author, Joleene Naylor, has apparently written an entire series around the idea of a 13 year old girl that is traveling the world with vampires. I have never read any of her other books, but upon reading this, I decided that it must have been intended for persons the same age as the antagonist. The personal narration is slightly childish, as though intended for young readers, and I personally found it to be silly and whimsical.

The book is actually full of valuable travel tips, foreign and domestic. The author adds in little random "vampire lore" ideas involving coffins and cargo holds, needing to feed of random people and whatnot. The author also includes felonies i her tips, like identity theft, leaving state and federal boundaries using false identification, robbing the dead, leaving the scene of homicides...

All in all the book is "cute" but silly and childish.
