"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

iDrakula 
by Bekka Black
Publication Date: October 1, 2010


Then he rattled on like always.  Indisposed?  They hauled Renfield Jr. past me screaming.  He actually bit the head off a little gray mouse he caught in the cafeteria.
(Pg. 3)

Okay, this book is awesome!  I found it at my library while browsing (one of my favorite ways to discover books).  This story is told completely in emails, texts, and web pages.  It is such a cool way to present a classic with a modern twist.  I could see so many of my students enjoying Dracula even more if it was supplemented with iDrakula.
