Some realistic contemporaries the daughters and I have enjoyed: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews anything by Raina Telgemeier anything by Francisco X. Stork anything by Stephanie Perkins anything by Sarah Dessen Hyperbole and a Half killed us all, as did What If? and Let's Pretend This Never Happened.
Terry Pratchett: start with Maurice and His Amazing Educated Rodents or Truckers or Only You Can Save Mankind or Nation or Dodger; Diana Wynne Jones, The Dark Lord of Derkholm; Naomi Novik, His Majesty's Dragon; Jasper Fforde, The Last Dragonslayer
I love your list, and all the things.
When I was twelve, my best friend and I wrote Gone With the Wind parodies in the style of Carol Burnett. My daughter writes parodies of Sherlock, which we love. Just because it has a real name now, and the possibility of feedback from more than one person, I don't think it is significantly different. And it can't produce worse writing than all the MFA programs churning out New Yorker-esque stories.
I can explain the marks "victims" are trying to hide on their necks. They're not from fangs, and they're not from any sort of hair iron, they're just hickeys from kissers who don't know better. Maybe the blood aspect comes from the anemia some young women experience with their periods? Or am I taking this way to seriously now?
