My Sister the Vampire #3: Re-Vamped!
Reviewed by Simon Smith (age 9) for Reader Views (4/08)
“My Sister the Vampire #3: Re-Vamped!” is the third book in a series that tells about the lives of twin sisters. Their names are Olivia and Ivy. Olivia, who loves garlic and bright colors, is the opposite of Ivy, who is more of a goth and likes black and hates garlic. And did I mention that Ivy is a vampire? Even though Ivy is a vampire, Olivia is not much bothered by it. At the end of the first book, they swore to stay together, vampire or not.
Because Ivy and Olivia were adopted at birth, the parents who are raising them did not realize that they were twins. The book starts with Olivia explaining to her parents that she has a twin sister. Then Ivy did the same thing with her dad. Then Ivy’s dad started to think that a vampire and a human being related was odd because human and vampire cross-breeds sometimes came out very odd. One of the cross-breeds had four heads—and that wasn’t the weirdest one!
The main plot of the book is Olivia and Ivy trying to get into a special information vault that they think will tell them where their real parents came from. But when they were in the information vault, the security cameras caught them. Then, the vampires knew that Olivia knew that vampires existed which no human is supposed to know. To make sure that she was worthy of knowing about the secret of vampires, they tested her. Olivia had to pass three tests and I don’t want to give away the whole book; but the first test was having to sleep in a coffin from dawn until dusk.
I think that Sienna Mercer is a great author and should keep on writing these “My Sister the Vampire” books because out of all the books that I have read (and I have read a lot of books), “My Sister the Vampire #3: Re-Vamped!” is one of the best. She has made a great book with consistent action, adventure, and mystery. I think that this book is okay for both genders and, as an age rating, I would say eight and up. I hope Sienna Mercer will write a lot more books because I enjoy them a lot.
