About the Author
Whitney Gardner is an author, illustrator, and cartoonist. She started drawing stick figures in second grade and somehow no one's been able to stop her. If there's ever a moment when she isn't drawing, she's likely to be found rolling twenty-sided dice. Her favorite color is yellow. She is the author of the YA novels You're Welcome, Universe and Chaotic Good, as well as the creator of Fake Blood and Long Distance and the illustrator for Debbie Levy's Becoming RBG.
"Whitney Gardner puts an unexpected twist on the classic dilemma of how to be yourself. Full of cleverness, charm, and--most importantly--vampires, FAKE BLOOD gives readers a fresh new voice and a taste of something truly special."--Booki Vivat, the New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of FRAZZLED
"FAKE BLOOD is a sweet and funny book with a surprise ending and plenty of winks for lovers of vampire fiction -- but more than that, it's a story about trying on identities and learning to be comfortable with yourself."--Molly Knox Ostertag, author-illustrator of The Witch Boy
"Charming, hilarious, and full of vampires . . . my favorite kind of graphic novel!"--James Riley, New York Times bestselling author of Story Thieves
*""[T]hink Raina Telgemeier with a Noelle Stevenson slant...Gardner's middle school romp is a magnum opus."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"Gardner's tale, which includes a share of lighthearted pokes at the Twilight series, is a fun romp through sixth grade."--Publishers Weekly
"The dialogue and pop culture references in this graphic novel are LOL funny."--Girls Life
"Gardner's artwork is whimsical and charming, and the cartoonish faces perfectly capture the extreme moods inherent in this age. Warm colours and dynamic shifts in visual perspective give Fake Blood an autumnal coziness that pulls the reader into each scene.

The story has a simple sweetness to it, championing family and friendship over hard-core action or fighting."--Quill & Quire
