My ten year old niece introduced this series to my nine year old daughter but I decided to read the books just to make sure they were age appropriate. Not only did my nine year old like the series, but I found it entertaining as well. Brought me back to the fun times of Junior High (even though there were no vampires in my school ;p)......I highly recommend the series as I found it to be well written and enjoyable. The three of us are anxiously awaiting the fifth book in the series.

I bought this series for my 10 year old daughter and she loves the series. She has read all four book at least 4 times this summer. It does have a different take on vampires, but since the author is targeting pre-teens I think it is appropriate to make the vampires less violent and evil than you read in some vampire novels. My daughter is looking forward to more books being released by Siena Mercer.

I expected more from the My Sister the Vampire series, especially since my friends all seem to like them. So I decided to give the first book a try. At first, it seemed very good, but then she starts seeing all these GOTHS. And I, being in the targeted age group, didn't like that very much. In fact,even though one of the two main characters was a Goth, I think there was too much emphasis put on the Gothic ways. Plus there was a lot of crushing and thinking about boys and dates. Over all, it was....OKAY. But I don't REALLY recommend to girls in the age range of 8-12.

Format: Paperback
Bubbly middle-school cheerleader, Olivia Abbott, is determined to make the best of her family's move to a new town. She starts school and immediately seeks out the cheerleaders to befriend. It seems that the popular girls at this school, however, are not the nicest people in the world. One day, Olivia meets goth girl, Ivy Vega. Ivy is the opposite of Olivia: she wears black clothes and thick eyeliner, and is far from the cheerleading type. As Olivia gets to know Ivy better she makes a startling discovery: Ivy looks a lot like her, in fact, she and Ivy are identical twins! Things get even weirder when Olivia learns that their fashion choices aren't the only thing different between them: Ivy is actually one of many vampires who call Olivia's new town home. Despite their differences, Olivia and Ivy become close, and decide to help each other out, even if they have to switch places from time to time to do it! But can a vampire and a cheerleader really pose as one another without getting noticed?

Switched is the first novel in Mercer's My Sister the Vampire series which has since been followed up by five additional installments, with two more being published in 2011. It is a very interesting and original story, with likeable characters and a believable setting. Ivy and Olivia have a pretty fantastical story, but they deal with issues that are common in middle school: crushes, bullies, peer pressure, and self-confidence. The vampire aspect of the story only adds to the fun. Although this installment of the series does not go into too much detail about exactly how Ivy and Olivia were separated at birth and why Ivy is a vampire but Olivia isn't, Mercer manages to make the reader care enough about her characters to want to find out how they came to be in their situation.

This book is really good. My daughter read it and loved it. This is one of her favorite series. I even skimmed through the book and it seemed very good. I think it is a very well written book and to parents who are debating to buy it, I think it is really good.

A Kid's Review on October 12, 2009
Format: Paperback
I read the book My Sister The Vampire: Switched by Sienna Mercer. It was about these identical twins that got separated at birth. Then the two sisters, Ivy and Olivia, meet in Olivia's new middle school. Soon after meeting they switch places, Ivy dressed up like Olivia and Olivia dressed up like Ivy, then they pretended to be each other. I loved it from the beginning, when Ivy and Olivia met and found out that they were twins, through the very end, when Ivy broke the first law of the night "a vampire is never supposed to reveal her true self to an outsider."
I noticed how the author put a lot of funny phrases and cheers in the book I read. Here is one. "I'm whiter than principal Whiteheads head!" I was not surprised when I found out that Ivy was a vampire, because the title said My Sister The Vampire Switch, but when I found out that all of the Goths in Olivia's new school were vampires to I was very, very surprised. I was also surprised when Ivy turned out to be a vampire, but Ivy's identical twin, Olivia, was not a vampire. I enjoyed how Ivy found out she was twins with Olivia. It was neat because there was this gem, and there was only one of it in the whole world, and two people (Olivia and Ivy) had it. It was the only thing they had from their real parents.
My Sister The Vampire is a growing series, it has two books out so far, My Sister The Vampire Switched and My Sister The Vampire Vampalicious, which I plan to read soon.
