- Young Adults - While most of Westerfeld's books are perfectly suitable for pre-teens, I feel like this one is definitely 8th or 9th grade and up. Vampirism is a sexually transmitted parasite that makes those infected extremely "horny". There is a lot of talk about sex, and even a good amount of casual sex (the parasite makes it's victims want to spread it). It's a great book, with lots of well-researched scientific facts on a number of parasites, and would even be a good lesson on STDs, but it is one that is better read by a more mature teen.
