When former good girl turned rebel Josie Griffin gets busted for what was in her mind perfectly acceptable revenge on her cheating dog of a boyfriend, she lands herself in anger management therapy. It could be worse: it could be juvvie, or she could be a zombie cheerleader like the rest of her former friends. But there's something strange about therapy--these are not normal kids. There's the wannabe ladies man with a weird accent, Johann; the blindingly gorgeous Helios; Avis with his wild dreads; and Tarren, the sprite of a girl with a wicked temper. And all of them keep talking about "powers." Josie knows that has to be impossible, but strange things start happening, and nothing weird ever happens in Indiana. After all, there're no such things as vampires, werewolves, Greek gods, or fairies . . . right?...

    I found that this book had a lot of loose ends. Maybe I just zoned out partway through, but...1. So what exactly IS Josie?2. What's with Tarren's speech issues?3. What exactly is going on between her and Helios?4. What happened with Graham Goren? They hardly mentioned him. Did that whole thing with him just blow over that quickly?5. Mostly same as above: What did Ellie have to do with the whole story?etc.If you can answer any of these, please do...The plot was pretty predictable. There were several parts that I found boring and unnecessary- they didn't contribute much to the plot. And it was pretty stupid of Josie to post all that stuff online, not to mention personal information and pictures of herself. I kind of blurred through the entire book. The plot skipped along pretty quickly but was still pretty boring to me. I definitely don't think this is my kind of read. Still, I'd hoped I would like it more than I'd expected. (It didn't happen)

    I wanted to like this a lot more than I did. Slut-shaming and the use of ableist terms (spaz) and the predictability of the narrative were reasons I couldn't. Also, the romance occurs at a super fast rate. Meh,

    Check out all my reviews at http://www.flyleafreview.comLet's face it, many would agree that the vampire genre has been done to death (sorry, couldn't resist!) and I am sort of in agreement with them. But, if it's written well, and doesn't feature the same tired storyline but instead offers something new and inventive, then I am all about THAT kind of vampire book. The premise of Josie Griffin is Not a Vampire, a rebellious but totally human teenage girl who winds up in an anger management support group for paranormal teens ( i.e; vampires, shapeshifters, faeries, and Greek gods), really grabbed my attention. It's inventive and original and sounds awesome, right? I thought so, so I requested it with high hopes. Unfortunately, this book, which had so much potential, fell short for me.I was looking for something that would read like the tag line above suggested: A hilarious take on the paranormal trend--Twilight meets The Breakfast Club!Hey, I'm not ashamed to admit that I loved the Twilight series. I credit that book for inspiring me to start reading again. And The Breakfast Club? Get out! LOVE John Hughes. LOVE. HIM. I'm pretty sure I know most of the lines in that movie and could kick any one's ass in John Hughes film trivia. And for me, any book that adds a healthy dose of humor scores major bonus points. But, other than the fact that there is a vampire in Josie Griffin, and that there is one scene of a circled up group therapy session, and there are a few witty one liners and amusing scenes written in, Josie Griffin has nothing in common with the above statement. The beginning started strong. Teenage Josie is in court awaiting sentencing for bashing in her ex boyfriend's windshield with a baseball bat when she discovered he was screwing around with her best friend. Ordered to pay damages, court fees, and attend community service as well as an anger management group for teens, Josie knows that she has gotten off easy. She feels bad that she has upset her parents, she's worried how this will affect her chances to get into the University of Chicago where she hopes to study journalism, but she really doesn't feel too bad about what she did to her ex's car. And yeah, he does sound a like a total ass. She's not only lost her boyfriend, but her two best friends as well. As a result Josie has sort of "gone to the dark side." She's ditched her cheerleader look for a more edgy, emo appearance and started up a blog where she vents all her frustration to the world. Her only friends are a collection of angry, broken hearted online acquaintances who comment on her blog posts. Josie attends her first group therapy session and it immediately becomes clear that this is not your average group of teenage misfits. There is something very strange about Tarren, Avis, Johann, Helios and their counselor. By the end of the session Josie is well and truly freaked out. The entire group thinks they are paranormal creatures and she promptly goes home to blog about about the bizarre encounter. Up to this point I was really enjoying the book. I liked the character of Josie. I felt sorry for her because I've been burned by boyfriends and friends in the past (although I have never taken it to extremes like she did). Josie's a good girl, but she's hurt and she's pissed. However, as we begin to meet and learn more about the secondary characters in the book, the paranormals, my disappointment begin to grow. The characters were, for lack of a better word, cartoonish. They bordered from outright silly and farcical (Johann the vampire) to bland and blah (Helios the Greek god.) Tarren the faerie and Avis the shapeshifter were probably the most interesting of the bunch, but only because Tarren was a frightening little tyrant and Avis had dreads. In other words, I was not blown away by any of them. Read the Entire Review

    The book actually started off interesting, even fun. Unfortunately, after a chapter or two it nosedived. The plot is not very complicated, but it takes forever to resolve because the main character can't put the clues together. She can't, in fact, do anything at all. She's there to observe and get in trouble so her friends can rescue her.If the book were funny, I'd forgive all that. But there isn't much humor unless you like spoonerisms and badly written slapstick. The writing is clumsy, the characterizations erratic. Josie starts off trying to convince her new friends to help her find a missing girl, then a few pages later has to be convinced by her friends to help. It doesn't make any sense. The plot is predictable too. I nearly put the book down out of boredom several times. Eventually I just skimmed the last few chapters.The world-building is almost nonexistent. There are vampires and werewolves and fairies and Greek gods etc. all around, constrained by rules handed down by a shadowy organization. The organization is used as a scare tactic but doesn't impact anything the characters do, and the characters' abilities are mostly ignored after being mentioned once or twice.

    Josie Griffin is a good kid. She's got straight As and volunteers for Habitat for Humanity. She edits the school newspaper. But she took a bat to her boyfriend's classic car when she caught him cheating on her with her best fried. Now, Josie Griffin is sentenced to anger management and community service.But there's something strange about her anger management class. All of the kids think they are some sort of magical being. Vampires, werewolves, pixies, Greek gods . . . and there's something weird about Helping American Girls too. Girls keep disappearing from the shelter but leaving all of their stuff - including phones - behind. Josie, who wants to be a reporter, is determined to figure out what's happening and save the remaining girls.JOSIE GRIFFIN IS NOT A VAMPIRE is cute, funny, and serious when it needs to be. For instance, the pixie Tarren lives on the wrong side of the tracks while Helios is part of the 1%, which causes friction between them. Urban fantasy fans will enjoy how JOSIE GRIFFIN IS NOT A VAMPIRE plays with the tropes of the genre. Nonhuman being living in plain sight is pretty typical, but the heroine stumbling over them on accident isn't. (Josie also, hilariously, pretends to be a werepire.)I liked the characters too. The members of the group all have trouble keeping their powers under control in public. But their reactions are pretty understandable. Hiding who you are is frustrating, especially when you're a teenager. And, if you could hex the guy trying to convince you to "date" him in an alley, wouldn't you? Plus, they're a refreshingly friendly and goofy bunch. No brooders here, even if the vampire Johann does miss the days of disco.JOSIE GRIFFIN IS NOT A VAMPIRE is perfect for readers searching for a book on the lighter side of urban fantasy. It has a little mystery, a little action, and lots of personality. Just don't expect any anger management tips.

    The review will begin in a few short sentences, but first I wanted to take the time to appropriately appreciate this cover. It is an odd little thing in a sea of covers and I just look at it and laugh. It is absolutely awesome.Onto the actual book. After reading the synopsis of Josie Griffin Is Not a Vampire and being lured in by the quirky cover I just had to buy the book. Josie is a character I could see myself being friends with. She was spurned by her boyfriend and reacts like many girls would love to do...bashing in his windshield with a bat, dumping her lying friends, and changing her look from cheerleader to bad ass. She is then sentenced to anger management group therapy. The kicker is that the kids in her group all believe they are supernatural creatures. Josie knows this is impossible, but she still feels something strange is going on. I loved the attitudes/personalities of all of the characters. Readers are really able to feel as if they know the characters. I love when I'm able to read a book and enjoy the characters as people. Tarren and Johann are definitely the two who stand out the most. Tarren's spunk and attitude coupled with her word jumble are absolutely hilarious. Johann is the creepy and lovable vampire who never gives up his 80's swagger. Then there was Helios and Avis. Helios is the love interest in the book, but he is stuck up and selfish for 99% of the book. You really want to see some redemption in him, but it only "sort of" happens and the relationship just sort of splutters along. Then there is Avis. At first he has a pretty good role in the story, but as it goes on he seems to disappear and only shows up every now and then. This is a cute and short book on the surface, but for me something was a little off. In Josie Griffin is Not a Vampire readers are introduced to the supernatural world through Josie's point of view, which is that of a human. She knows absolutely nothing about this world. I am a huge fan of world building and this book just didn't do that for me. There was very little information about this world presented and the book could have used some fleshing out on this point. Several times I found myself feeling something didn't make sense because I didn't have enough background story. Secondly, there is one huge coincidence in the book that just never made sense to me. It was too odd and never really explained. ( I can't tell more without giving away who the "big bad" in the story is) I will say it has something to do with why Josie was placed in the group she was in the first place. Josie Griffin is Not a Vampire was a cute and quick read on the surface, but lacked enough information to be truly awesome. Hopefully there will be a sequel that will add more to it. I would be willing to give it a second try. This book gets a barely there 3 STAR rating.

    Heather Swain's latest novel, Josie Griffin Is Not a Vampire should really be called Josie Griffin Is an Angry, Angry Girl. Coming to terms with her boyfriend and best friend's betrayal (they were hooking up behind her back), the humiliation of everyone else knowing about it before her, and dealing with her anger at the situation and practically the world has been made slightly easier through Josie's favorite outlet: her blog. Sharing her stories and feelings is therapeutic and some of her readers have become her circle of virtual friends.Bashing in her ex's windshield with a bat also helped, but it landed Josie in a lot of trouble. She's been sentenced to community service at HAG, short for Helping American Girls. HAG houses runaways and helps them move forward with their life. Josie is also required to take anger management classes, which pisses her off even more because she doesn't feel like she needs them. And as she sits in on her first session, she realizes that she fits in even less than she thought she would. Everyone else in the group, including the councilor, are some type of mythical creature. Josie realizes that a story on these crack pots could be good practice for her dream career--investigative journalist--and decides to infiltrate the group and pose as one of them. But as Josie gets to know the members of her group better, her eyes are opened to how unsafe a place her town really is and begins to question what exactly makes someone a monster.Josie is a pretty bad-ass girl even though she definitely makes some big mistakes. Josie Griffin Is Not a Vampire is a very fun read, and it's mostly because of Josie's attitude, snarky comments, and how much she cares (even though her anger won't let her admit it at first). All of the characters were very well developed and don't necessarily conform to what their mythical creature is supposed to be like. Everyone in Josie's group is pretty bad ass in their own way, and they are all funny. Heather Swain wrote everyone really well and managed to make the story funny and compelling even when parts of it are on the scarier side. (Note: That's scarier. I don't do horror, so don't expect blood and gore here.)I highly recommend Josie Griffin Is Not a Vampire for anyone looking for a fun, light, paranormal read. (I could also see this novel becoming a great movie, btw.)

    Josie Griffin has been sentenced to anger management classes after destroying her cheating boyfriend's car with a baseball bat. Once she gets there, she finds out that the other kids in the group are a bunch of wackos--claiming to be vampires, faeries, and oh yeah, Greek gods. But Josie is determined to get through the course and the laborious community service she has been assigned to.As Josie gets to know her group mates, she realizes that as far out as it sounds, they were all telling the truth! Not only is she now friends with a pack of supernatural creatures, she's also trying to uncover a mystery in the shelter where she's doing her community service; girls are going missing without a trace. Can Josie and the group of paranormal misfits find out the truth?This book pulled me in from the very beginning, but as I read on I struggled with knowing what rating I would give it. I couldn't decide if this novel was hilarious or ridiculous (and believe me, it's a fine line), so I ended up rating it right in the middle.Josie is likable enough--she gets points just for beating up her ex's car with a bat!--but I never really connected with her. The characterization wasn't very deep in this novel, and I think that's why I didn't connect with anyone. The relationship between Josie and Helios was pretty weak. As a matter of fact, it was more interesting to watch Johann the awkward vampire fawn all over Kayla. That, at least, was funny. The group was diverse but not intriguing as a whole.The writing was trite at times, with Tarren the dyslexic faerie botching her speech, and Josie misunderstanding things often. Though I did enjoy when Tarren mixing up her words resulted in spells which did not work they way they were intended.I figured out the ending about halfway into the book, so when it turned out as I expected it would, that was a bit of a disappointment for me. In my opinion, this was just a very "meh" book that just left me with a few weak smiles and a lack of any other strong emotion.

    Josie Griffin had the perfect boyfriend, great best friends and was living the teenage dream as a popular high school cheerleader. Than she found her boyfriend kissing one of her BFFs - and found out the other supposed best friend knew and didn't say anything. So you can't really blame a girl for busting out his windshield...right? Except now she's court ordered to attend anger management therapy and do community service. Not so bad, except when she lands in a group where everyone believes they're a mythological creature. There's a vampire, a shapeshifter, a fairy, and what might be a Greek God. Then girls from the shelter that Josie is working off her community service at begin to disappear. It's up to Josie and her new friends to figure out what's going on, before it's too late for the girls that are still left. But can Josie fit in with these kids, even though she's just a human? This book started off very promising and I was laughing during the first few chapters, at Josie's fun personality and cheering for her continued strength. It didn't last. Josie stays consistently okay as a lead character, but is very shallow for the entirety of the book. She never undergoes any real character development and neither do any of the others, especially her love interest Helios. I felt like the more interesting characters in this were Tarren (the fairy) and Kayla (one of the girls from the shelter). It was very predictable, in a Saturday night B-movie kind of way. I smiled a few times, but overall I really did not connect with this one at all. The resolution to the mystery was very obvious throughout the whole book and it made me groan at the cliche of it all. A cute read, but nothing deeper below the surface. VERDICT: 2.75/5 Stars*I received this book as part of Around the World ARC Tours, run by the lovely Princess Bookie. No favors or money were exchanged for this review. It became available for purchase or at your local library on September 13th, 2012.*

    This was a quick, cute, read for teens about an ex-cheerleader named Josie who goes a bit wild, (I say a 'bit', because the changes are mostly just cosmetic: New wardrobe, pierced nose and purple streaks dyed into her hair), after she discovers that her boyfriend has been cheating on her with her, supposed, best friend and her other bestie knew about it, but, said nothing and when the truth came out sided with the cheating couple. Naturally, when Josie discovers her boyfriend and friend "in flagrante delicto", in the backseat of his car, she finds herself a baseball bat and takes her hurt/anger out on his windshield. This gets her into a bit of trouble and she is sentenced to both Community Service and Anger Management, however, her Caseworker is a bit of a scatterbrain and sends Josie to group that she soon discovers is for Paranormals with anger issues. In the mix we have: A Greek God, Fairy, Shape-Shifter and a Vampire. At first, until she witnesses what they can do, Josie thinks they are all wacko and when they ask what her origin is she decides to play along and tells them that she is a 'Werepire', but, due to the interbreeding she has no supernatural abilities.As for her Community Service, she is sent to help out at a shelter for teenage girls who, for one reason or another, have run away from home and is run by a shrew of a woman named Maron. It isn't long before Josie develops a friendship with one of the girls there and gets caught up in the mystery of why so many girls who come there end up disappearing and the closer she gets to finding out what is happening to those who've disappeared she realizes she's going to need the help of her paranormal friends...that is if they will even speak to her after she accidentally 'outs' them on her blog which sets a group of totally inept demon hunters on their trail. So, as I said, this was a cute story about friendship. The characters are likable, well, the ones we are supposed to like anyway, and, the little personality quirks each of the paranormal members of the group have are amusing.

    This book isn't a book for me. I honestly thought I would love it, it sounds funny and like a very interesting, lighthearted read. Instead I got a disorganized book that is full of dumb and boring things. In the beginning, everything was going great, it was interesting and even a little funny. That quickly changed once I reached chapter four or five. The characters are all stiff and seem like complete jokes. Nothing interesting happens in this book that really caught my attention. It really annoyed me.The writing style is just all over the place. It's very disorganized and confusing, acting more like a whiny girl's diary than anything else. At one point, she's trying to convince her new friends to help her figure out what to do about the HAG situation, then a few chapters later, Josie is the one who needs to be convinced to help. That just doesn't make sense at all. Something that really annoys me about this book is the romance. It is very shallow and annoying. They barely know each other but they're talking about each other like they've known each other forever instead of two weeks? No. That is stupid and wrong. But what annoys me even more is that Josie thinks she's some kind of investigator when she isn't. Not even close. The book doesn't help her prove that she's an investigator because there are little to no clues that keep readers guessing or makes this book a little more complex. The ending sucks because nothing interesting happens. Just a few heart-to-hearts between some of the characters.I really like that this book uses difficult words instead of only using 'easy' words like, contrite and ostentatious (just to name a few). I like the beginning because it is interesting and funny at first. I wouldn't recommend this book because I don't think very many people would enjoy this book. It's very disorganized and stiff instead of the funny read you would have expected.

    So, I caught the snippet about Josie being a "werepire" and from that, I thought this book would be more funny/amusing than it was...eh. Towards the end (around Ch 15), it started to get pretty boring. The blow-by-blow about checking her blog, her email, who and what she was texting, etc. The romance (if you can call it that) with Helios was pretty thin and superficial. The "mystery" was pretty lame. Also, it annoyed me how dumb she was to even blog about the paras in the first place! Hello, they told her about the Council, about how people harmed them (view spoiler)[(Tarren even told about how she was nearly raped, etc) (hide spoiler)] just for being who they were, and she goes and gives detail accounts of her time with them in her blog? So she didn't use full names, it wouldn't be hard to figure out! TSTL man. Seriously! At least she decided to delete them, but still...once something is on the internet, once it's out there...it can never truly be deleted.Also, I was wondering about Tarren and her speech errors. I was wondering what was up with that until it (there was no explanation--I was like, is this a fae thing or...?) was indicated she was dyslexic (in Ch 15). I don't know enough about the dyslexia, but it seemed odd she had it in speech...I mean, do those that are dyslexic also make letter errors in speaking, as well as reading/writing? I thought it was a reading/writing issue. But as I said, I'm lacking knowledge on this. Examples:"Everyone just dettle sown" (settle down)"pam dig" (damn pig)"haerie Fospitality" (faerie hospitality) etc

    I cannot for the life of me remember why this book was on my TBR list. I think I may have entered a giveaway waaaaaaay back when to win an ARC and then I just sort of left it there. Anyways, flash forward six months and I see this sitting at the Cupertino Public Library (aka the best library ever, but more on that later). So I see this book. I grab it in my frenzied collection, check out, and bring it home. It was on the top of the pile so I read it first. Lil' guy literally took me 90 minutes to finish. Let's get down to the nitty gritty: this book could have been amazing. It wasn't horrible, but I felt as though the weak writing was seriously detrimental to the plot (a plot that, at my very kindest, I can describe only as "muddled"). That and a pretty unloveable main character, Josie. The story itself was pretty humorous and I felt as though, if read on a deeper level (which was VERY difficult) the book was alluding to some of the intrinsic problems with conformity and society, but again I was turned off by the writing style. In the book's defense, I'd say the last 30% was waaaaaaay better than the beginning (otherwise I'd be giving this two stars). The ending left room for a sequel, possibly, which I am hoping doesn't happen. I'd like to recommend this book to maaaaaaybe a middle grades student, but some of the raunchier humor/references to drugs/sluts/prostitutes rules that out. Blah.

    This books takes place in Indiana with the main character, Josie Griffin. Josie gets in big trouble for seeking revenge on her cheating ex boyfriend and coincidentally gets put into an anger management therapy because of it. She soon realizes that the people in therapy with her are not normal kids. They all fall under certain stereotypes, but not the normal ones that she is used to and all of them talk about certain "powers" that they have. Soon, strange things start to happen that she can't really describe and nothing ever weird happens in her city. She then begins to start doing some research and learns some shocking things about these strange people in her therapy seminar.I didn't really like this book that much. It is listed as a comedy and at times it was quite funny, but It wasn't really my humor I guess. The humor is more for a younger audience, but I did find the concept a little interesting. I also found the book was a little too predictable. The main character didn't interest me either because she was quite a cheesy and unrealistic character. Although this is my opinion, I would recommend it to a younger audience because I think a younger audience would like the humor and the characters in the story a little bit more than I did.

    If discovering that your boyfriend has been hooking up with your best friend behind your back, and your other best friend knew, but never told you wasn't enough to knock you off the rails, then how about ending up in court? That's what happens to Josie. Granted, she took a baseball bat to her cheating ex's vintage car's windshield, but she felt justified. Now she has community service at a home for runaway girls and weekly anger management classes. Humiliating, sure, but then things get really weird. Everyone in her group is different..as in not exactly human and it doesn't help that she suddenly has the hots for a Greek god. Then there's the disturbing stuff happening at the girls' home, like teens vanishing and let's not mention all the freaky billboards for a new clothing line featuring zombie-like female teens. Is there a sinister connection? This is a funny and quite intelligent read and one that teens who like their paranormal with nice dashes of snark and romance will very much enjoy.

    This was a little to trying to be somewhat like " Twilight" It was boring and just a slow, painful read. I only finished it because it was a short read to begin with. The characters are bland and at best "somewhat funny". It didn't really have a plot either. It was constantly everywhere at once. SPOILER ALERT: What the hell was the point of writing about Josie and her new crushes fling?? He was a jerk and the author didn't even really run with the love side of it. Josie went from being this girl who was.. amazing for taking the actual step to bashing in her boyfriend's windshield to this scared, boring oh it's not my fault girl. The book was rushed and it shows in the writing. Wouldn't recommend to anyone really..

    This is a great YA paranormal I would love to see it as a series but so far haven't seen any on the horizon but don't let that stop you from reading this one it's full of funny moments with lots of twists and turns.This review was originally posted on Books In Brogan

    This book was definitely interesting. It was a fun enough read but not enough to want to read it again. The main character, Josie, was bland and the other characters almost tried to be completely stereotypical of their "species". It was very hard to relate to any of the characters and therefore hard to like any of them. The storyline itself was original though I found it to be completely ridiculous. I wouldn't recommend the book to anyone.

    When I first began this book, I had an open mind. I wasn't expecting something amazing, but I thought it might be cute and/or funny. Unfortunately, it was neither of those things. The first to chapters were almost really good, but then suddenly the plot began to get tired and cutesy, and the portrayal of mythological creatures was stereotypical and overly modernized. I put the book down about halfway through and didn't pick it up again.

    Josie was a good kid. Habitat for Hummanity. On the Cheerleading Squad. So what led her to anger management with Vampires, Faeries, and Shape Shifters? In this book Josie became more loyal, and really started to undersand what she wanted to do with her life. So cheerleading wasn't her thing anymore. Anyway's now she can focus on journalism which is another thing she got better at during the book. Snooping is how she found out about everything anyway...

    Where do I begin?The covers got me there. And, I have to agree with everyone else. The first chapters were enjoyable and hilarious. But, Josie fell in love quickly with Helios. The relationship isn't that fluff enough. But at Chapter 15, I realised that the story were too slow, I urged myself to read as fast as I can.Overall, it was pretty decent. I wouldn't recommend because the author's writing were confusing.

    Although I was not that fond of some of the odd capitalization, I loved most of these characters. The book was a pretty quick read, and very entertaining. I especially laughed bunches when the ferry character kept switching letters around with her dyslexia and casting some pretty bizarre spells. It is definitely an enjoyable book.

    I really enjoyed the first 2 chapters. I had total hope for the book, but it just didn't do it for me as I kept reading... So, maybe for teens and preteens this would be a fun urban fiction lite...but not for me and probably not for most adults...

    I really enjoyed this book. It is very funny and Josie is a great main character. This book har very many different supernatural creatures, and they are really interesting. They are fun and different and I really liked theme. If you want a fun and short book you should read this one :)

    The only reason I read this was because it took place in Indianapolis and the main character lived in Broad Ripple. Besides that, it seemed pretty run-of-the-mill book w/ no explanations about why these kids were (or wanted to be) these characters.
