Editorial Reviews

Review

“Keeble’s entertaining plot contains action and suspense coupled with a witty protagonist and a great cast of secondary characters. A funny, refreshing novel.” (School Library Journal)

“Quirky and fun. Jane’s authentic teen dialogue is refreshing and reminiscent of Louise Rennison’s Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

About the Author

Helen Keeble is not, and never has been, an angel. She has, however, been a teenager. She grew up partly in America and partly in England, which has left her with an unidentifiable accent and a fondness for peanut butter crackers washed down with a nice cup of tea. She now lives in West Sussex, England, with her husband, daughter, two cats, and a variable number of fish.

Customer Reviews

I highly recommend this humorous funny read!
Lettee
Sure, I take my favorite vampire stories very seriously, but I can also appreciate a comedic take on the genre as well.

I can't tell you how many times I was literally laughing out loud for this one.

There is only one acronym to describe Fang Girl - "LOL." One needs a fabulous sense of humor to read this one, and if you're a Twilight-fan - wait no...scratch that - if you're a YA slash paranormal romance fan, you can't take yourself too seriously or you will seriously hate this book. Did I hate it? Absolutely not. It cracked me the f up.
Xanthe Jane Greene (Janie) loves all things vampires. She thinks vampires are sexy, has a Dracula ringtone, and spends her time hanging out at Fang-Girls.net (I won't lie - I actually googled to see if that was real - it wasn't, thankfully). Not to mention her piles and piles of vampire fiction. But she never thought vampires were real. And then she wakes up in a coffin. Dead.
Like I said before, if you take your vampire fiction-love seriously and get offended when people make fun of your reading choices, don't read this book. Just don't. Fang Girl pokes fun at every major YA/PNR franchise, like Twilight and Vampire Academy. It is satire to the nth degree. And it was hysterical. I found myself literally LULZing on every page, because Keeble puts Janie in the most asinine situations and really makes them so unbelievable, you can't help but laugh because you know that's the entire point of the story. None of it is real, DUH!
Keeble was also incredible in delivering one-liners with a dry sort of sarcasm only found in satire that really just made me laugh. Here are some examples:

" "Die, foul fiend," he snarled, charging once more.
"Foul fiend?" I said, nearly getting clipped by the blade due to disbelief. I rolled to pick up a few more paperclips. "Did you actually just say that, like, non-ironically?" "

"Anyone looking at my teeth wouldn't immediately think "vampire," just "typically awful British dentistry.

Fang Girl by Helen Keeble stars Jane who wakes up and finds herself in a coffin. Now just because she was obsessed with vampires didn't mean she wanted to be one. She soon travels home to see her very shocked parents (and brother who is sure she is a zombie) who treat her change like an interesting science experiment.

I could not stop laughing throughout this book. It was a fantastic comedy. From the brother who was sure she was a zombie to her zombie goldfish and her obsession with organization I couldn't stop reading and finished the book quickly. I can't wait to read more from Hellen Keeble.

Appropriateness: This book has no adult content and the romance is light and fluffy. I would recommend this book to readers 12+

Format: Paperback
Xanthe Jane Greene had always been big vampire fan, writing fan fiction on Fang-Girls.net and reading all the popular fiction about vampires out there. However, she never actually wanted to become one! Especially when becoming a vampire is not as fun as all the books she's read. Now Jane has to deal with parents who want to become vampires too to accompany her for eternity, an Elder vampire intent on killing her and her sire, a Victorian vampire guy who's trying really hard to romance her, and a ripped vampire hunter who is way too much a distraction when he's trying to stake her.

In her YA debut Helen Keeble's use of vampire lore is not only hilarious but genius! She takes the vampire myth to a whole new level of hilarity, especially their desire to clean and organize. Jane gets firsthand experience on how severe OCD can get you killed. I really loved how her whole family took in the fact that their daughter had risen from the dead. Jane's Mom is very proactive about the whole thing, and goes into research mode to help her daughter be a good vampire. Her Dad is very supportive too, cooking a lot of different meals to see what she likes. Her brother Zack is just hilarious, and takes everything in stride.

And their pet goldfish is my hero.

Jane is sure her family is quite crazy. Luckily Ebon de Sanguine comes along. He's a Victorian vampire with a suave attitude who can't quite contain his excitement around modern stuff. Though he seems very interested in helping her, and romancing her, there's just something not right about him. Then Van, the totally ripped vampire hunter, comes along! Just what Jane needed, another distraction. The two will form an unlikely alliance when Jane's family is taken hostage by the Elder vampire who's searching for her.

I didn't want to put this book down even to sleep. Despite the story being mostly taking place in Xanthe Jane's home with her family you'll spend the book guessing whose side to believe as the new born vampire is but a pawn for her power. Not to mention get a few laughs from her new vampire compulsions and how the vampire hunters ward off the vampires to make their escape when the two are alone. All the while she just want her life to go back to as close as normal as possible given her current no living condition. its a great book showing that no matter how different you are family can get along and stick together. Especially when troubles about.

Ever since I participated in the Fang Girl book blitz back in December I've been dying to read this one. The excerpts were hilarious and I already knew that I would love Helen Keeble's writing style. I had a hard time finding this at the bookstore so when I finally got my library card this was one of the my first requests!!

The main character, Xanthe, or Jane was hilarious! I loved her snarky, dry sense of humor and even though she was a vampire, she was such a realistic 15-year-old. I actually loved her entire family, especially her little brother. Even though they came of as a bit corny at times, they were so loving and also provided a ton of laughs.

Fang Girl is so hilarious that it borders on making fun of the vampire genre. It was exactly what I needed in a paranormal, especially vampire lore. It seemingly poked fun at some of the silly vampire stereotypes that exist now and it was altogether chapter after chapter of laughs.
There was a twist on a love triangle as well, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I'm so sick of love triangles and the fact that they are all the same but Helen Keeble did a good job with having one, but mixing it up... you actually might not even be able to tell there is a bit of one

Fang Girl was fast paced and kept me quite on the edge of my seat. It wasn't over the top action but the suspense of what was going to happen, who this mystery member of the bloodline was, who Lily really is... I just needed to have answers. Luckily Helen Keeble's writing style is wonderful. At no point during reading Fang Girl did I feel like it was dragging on, and the comedy adds so much to the pacing as well.

I don't want to reveal too much of the story as there are a few "twists", so I'll leave my review at that. If you are eyeing this up, love paranormal with comedy and even if you are getting sick of the generic vampire novels, definitely give Fang Girl a try!

I cannot wait to read Helen Keeble's upcoming novel!
