From School Library Journal
"A year has passed since America Out Day, the day on which awkward 16-year-old vampire Morning McCobb led other vampires in their quest to integrate peaceably into everyday human life. This book defies any efforts to give it a genre label. Action and suspense abound, with a little romance thrown in for good measure. Between the soy-based blood substitute favored by vegan vampires and terms like 'dentis eruptus,' Meehl fabricates a vampire experience that is not only laugh-out-loud funny but nuanced as well."

All Morning McCobb wants to do is graduate from the academy and become one of New York's firefighters. But unfortunately, things are never quite that simple, are they? Especially when you're a teenage vampire forced to be the figurehead for the Vampire League. However, Morning does a great job of not letting the fame and notoriety go to his head. His easy sense of humor and dedication to his EB - eternal beloved - Portia come together to steer his focus onto other things, the kinds of things your average teen would be focused on. Morning is probably one of the most likable vampires I've ever come across.
Portia's sights are set on her art - filmmaking. Even if she manages to push her boyfriend, Morning, to the side, the show must go on or else she might fail to graduate. Because of this, she does have a tendency to put Morning second and her film du jour first. Despite that, she's an enjoyable character and very fit to be by Morning's side all the way. When it counts, she is there for him and has complete faith in his abilities. She brings stability to his sometimes flighty moments.
Suck It Up and Die is an entertaining and laugh out loud funny novel of vampires fighting for their rights to be part of the crowd. The author keeps you reading with plot twists I didn't expect and a very unique take on the vampire myth, coming up with a kicker that caught me by surprise. With its cast of zany side characters and action packed plot, there's a little of something for everyone inside its cover. So pick up your can of blood substitute and come celebrate American Out Day with Morning and his friends!
