Most of the stories were more horror/urban fantasy than paranormal romance.

I got an advanced reading copy of this book through Book It Forward ARC Tours. This was an excellent anthology with a lot of really great vampire stories. It is young adult, but I would recommend for older young adults because of swearing and sexuality. Most of the stories were more horror/urban fantasy than paranormal romance.

I am going to highlight some of the stories I really enjoyed, and there were a lot of them that I really enjoyed. The first story "Things to Know About Being Dead" by Genevieve Valentine, was hilarious and bittersweet; I really loved it. The title pretty much explains what the story is about. I also loved "Flying" by Delia Sherman, it was a wonderful story about young girl who is a trapeze artist with Leukemia and struggling to find a way to join the circus. "Vampire Weather" by Garth Nix was another highlight; an excellent story about a young man who lives in an almost Amish like society in a world where vampires are everyday occurrences.

Then there was "The List of Definite Ending by Cecil Castelucci" where a vampire finds a more merciful way to take her prey; this was a sweet story and well written. "Sit the Dead" by Jeffrey Ford gives us a gruesome story about recessive genetic vampirism that was interesting and action packed. "Slice of Life" by Lucius Shepard gives a look into the life of a lonely girl who is contemplating becoming a serial killer to free a vampiric friend. "Why Light?" by Tanith Lee was one of the best stories in the anthology, it was a beautiful and touching story about vampires in an arranged marriage.

There were also a number of stories in here that, while not outstanding, were very good and engaging. I have listed the complete set of stories with brief synopsis/thoughts below.

I'm an adult, not a teen, but I love Ellen Datlow's anthologies - she picks kick-butt great stories. And Teeth is no different. Other reviewers have summarized the stories, so I will not, but I'll say that I was never bored, and while I "liked" a few stories I "loved" a few more - there is some great stuff in here. No love of Dracula or Twilight is needed, as in the tradition of great stories, these are about characters and the interesting things that happen to them. I'm just about finished, and I wish there were more left to read.

Format: Paperback
This eerie collection features nineteen pieces by authors such as Neil Gaiman (THE GRAVEYARD BOOK), Melissa Marr (WICKED LOVELY series), Cassandra Clare (CLOCKWORK ANGEL) and Holly Black (THE CURSE WORKERS and GOOD NEIGHBORS series).

The first story in the anthology is "Things to Know About Being Dead" by Genevieve Valentine. After surviving a car accident, Suyin discovers that she's not quite alive and not quite dead. She has become a jiang-shi, and she must drink blood to experience any kind of life. In this darkly ironic story, Suyin details twenty-three things she learns about life once she's dead.

In "Sunbleached" by Nathan Ballingrud, Joshua finds out the hard way that vampires do exist and that taunting one that has been caught in the sun is not a good idea. Frustrated by his parents' divorce and his mother's new boyfriend, Joshua is looking for a change. But, the change he gets is not necessarily the one he wants.

Cassandra Clare and Holly Black collaborate on the story "The Perfect Dinner Party" to create one of the creepiest vampires in the collection. Their story follows six twisted rules of etiquette for the newly-formed vampire who wants to please his/her master. Readers who enjoy first-person narrators will find this tale an intriguing one!

If you're looking for paranormal romance, avoid this book. However, if you want to read stories that could keep you awake at night, this is a great choice! It is a truly enjoyable romp through the afterlife!

The moment I opened the book I was pleasantly surprised by the spectacular introduction. I usually skip over anthology intros because, well, they're boring. But Ellen Datlow's intro in Teeth was full of info on vampire history and folklore, which filled me with all kinds of happy (major props for doing actual research). That happiness grew more and more as I continued reading through story after story.

The tales in this collection are excellent, I was expecting mindless teenage garbage, but the stories were remarkably well-written, highly innovative and captivating. I was surprised at how much thought each author put into their story, the majority of them were intelligent and full of meaning and purpose. The stories weren't meant to just entertain you, but to make you think as well. As an added bonus, many authors mixed actual vampire folklore into their stories, and since I'm a folklore junkie I absolutely loved it.

One of the things I found most impressive in this collection was that the author's stayed true to their audience - teenagers. Any teen who reads this book will be able to relate to at least one of the stories. That's what I thought was great. On top of being highly entertaining and thought-provoking reads, they also touch on big teens issues that speak to younger readers. Homosexuality, suicide, depression, parental issues... etc. were all brought up in this book. Teeth covered many teen issues today and put them in a awesome vampire setting. So this book gets loads of bonus points for that.

As for the stories themselves, I loved too many to list, but a few that stick out in my mind are Vampire Weather by Garth Nix and In The Future All's Well by Catherynne M. Valente. Nix's was a interesting story set in a world where vampires are known to exist.
