Imagine if vampires had been living in America during colonial times. Now, imagine if they still not only co-existed with humans in the US, but also helped found a town. New Whitby, Maine, is such a town. The main character in Team Human, Mel, is human, but finds her life entwined with those of the vampires she despises who share her town. Her best friend, Cathy, falls in love with a vampire, and Mel also meets Kit, a human guy who was raised in a shade, or a group of vampires who live as a family. This book is very refreshing, funny, and thought provoking. I laughed out loud several times, and also found parts of this book so fascinating, I could not put it down. This is a fabulous read, full of interesting, well rounded characters. And not everything works out the way you think it will. I call this a teen human fiction, with vampires on the side.
