"A love letter to the power of music, this thoughtful, humorous exploration of what constitutes living versus mere survival sees Chen (Light Years from Home) at the top of his game." --Publishers Weekly starred review

"A propulsive, poignant ode to vampire mythos, human connection, and the enduring power of punk rock." --Sarah Kuhn, author of Heroine Complex

"Mike Chen is at his best here, with a sharp-as-fangs reinvention of the vampire mythos centered on the power of family, born and chosen, and, of course, punk rock. This book will sink its teeth right into your heart." --Gwenda Bond, New York Times bestselling author

"Never getting old sucks! Mike Chen's Vampire Weekend is a kicky homage to punk rock and a delightful exploration of what it means to be 'other, ' teaching us that while vampire blood helps, true healing comes from family and forgiveness." --Sierra Godfrey, author of A Very Typical Family

"Fresh, intelligent, and darkly funny, Vampire Weekend is my favorite vampire novel since Interview With The Vampire." --Stina Leicht, author of Persephone Station

"Vampire Weekend rocks. It's a fanged love song to punk, guitars, and vampires, and it shines with hope and humor. I loved every beat." --New York Times Bestselling Author Chloe Neill

"Vampire Weekend finally gives us the painfully relatable vampires we've always needed: awkward, cringey, their clothes never quite in style. But with that comes a story of genuine kindness and the gentle wonder of understanding and friendship found in the least likely place imaginable--in your own family, vampire or not." --Natalie Zina Walschots, author of Hench

"A strong emotional core carries Chen's (Light Years from Home, 2022) latest, which is ultimately about healing from old wounds and learning how to embrace life again after loss--even if you're dead." --Booklist

"The narrative shifts through time to tell a story of family and battling loneliness with music for an altogether unique tale." --Book Riot

"It's funny, it's suspenseful, it's sometimes heartbreaking but always thrilling. The story will never go where you expect it to go, and that's just one of many reasons you won't be able to put it down once it's open in your hands." --Culturess

"Anyone looking for a cute, family story that happens to star someone who lives off blood will be fully satiated."

"An ode to a love for vampires, music, and family." --Library Journal
