Book Description

Nearly two years after Suck It Up, all Morning McCobb wants is to complete his training at the NY Fire Academy and to stay head over heels in love with Portia for as long as the chronology-crossed lovers can, given that she's now eighteen and he's stalled at sixteen.
It's nearly the first anniversary of American Out Day, the historic day on which the Leaguer vampires of America began going mainstream without going bloodstream on their fellow mortal citizens.
The tension between Morning's wish for a simple, out of the spotlight life, and Portia's cinematic obsession with historic events escalates to the breaking point when a super-sinister vampire rises from the grave with a powerful thirst, for revenge.

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up-A year has passed since the historic America Out Day, the day on which awkward 16-year-old vampire Morning McCobb led other vampires in their quest to integrate peaceably into everyday human life. Now, with Congress's vote on the Vampires Rights Act just days away, most vampires (sanguivores is the PC term) are on their best behavior. In this relatively gore-free, stand-alone sequel to Suck It Up (Delacorte, 2008), Morning wants out of the spotlight. He just wants to spend time with his human girlfriend, Portia, and focus on training to be a fireman for the NYFD. The advancement of vampire rights and Morning's desire to lead a quiet life are jeopardized when the evil vampire he and Portia killed in the first book comes back to life bent on revenge. It does not help that Becky-Dell Wallace, an outspoken and powerful anti-vampire congresswoman, is doing all she can to fan the flames of vampire phobia. It is up to Morning, Portia, and a few of their friends to fight back before the nice vampires lose the political ground they have gained. This book defies any efforts to give it a genre label. Action and suspense abound, with a little romance thrown in for good measure. In addition, between the soy-based blood substitute favored by vegan vampires and faux terms such as "dentis eruptus," Meehl fabricates a vampire experience that is not only laugh-out-loud funny but nuanced as well.-Jennifer Prince, Buncombe County Public Library, NCα(c) Copyright 2011.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best vampire book ever! January 15, 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Now usually I hate books about vampires and no offense but Twilight disgusts me, movie and books. This though Suck it up and Suck it up and die are two of the best books I've ever read. The life changing story between Morning and Portia scared me to death, and the end result was something that I would have never expected. So thank you Brian Meehl for a book I couldn't put down!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Read September 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Vampires fighting for the right to become full American citizens? Utter craziness! And yet, that's just what's happening in New York on this first anniversary of American Out Day. Although, things never quite go as smoothly as planned, do they? Enter our hero, Morning McCobb and his band of crazy friends, ready to step up and save the day... er, night?

All Morning McCobb wants to do is graduate from the academy and become one of New York's firefighters. But unfortunately, things are never quite that simple, are they? Especially when you're a teenage vampire forced to be the figurehead for the Vampire League. However, Morning does a great job of not letting the fame and notoriety go to his head. His easy sense of humor and dedication to his EB - eternal beloved - Portia come together to steer his focus onto other things, the kinds of things your average teen would be focused on. Morning is probably one of the most likable vampires I've ever come across.

Portia's sights are set on her art - filmmaking. Even if she manages to push her boyfriend, Morning, to the side, the show must go on or else she might fail to graduate. Because of this, she does have a tendency to put Morning second and her film du jour first. Despite that, she's an enjoyable character and very fit to be by Morning's side all the way. When it counts, she is there for him and has complete faith in his abilities. She brings stability to his sometimes flighty moments.

Suck It Up and Die is an entertaining and laugh out loud funny novel of vampires fighting for their rights to be part of the crowd. The author keeps you reading with plot twists I didn't expect and a very unique take on the vampire myth, coming up with a kicker that caught me by surprise.
