    1. I read this for a project in a young adult lit class. I thought this book sounded like it could be great, I liked the vampire/diabetes theory. However, I was disappointed in the one-dimensional way it portrayed the gothy kids and it's moralistic tone. The ending was a little too "go comformity!" for me.


    2. Lucy is a bright teenager who is angry about having diabetes dominate her life.I thought Hautman did a good job balancing a realistic portrayal of Lucy's angst with the reality that both she and her parents were partly responsible for the problems, hard feelings, etc. At least, I thought thought this until the ending where the author pulls this ridiculous parental fantasy bait-and-switch and oh yes, just stop wearing black and dying your hair and do well in school and conform with what your teac [...]


    3. This book sucks. Hated all of the characters in the book. Definitely hated the main character. Hated the fact she was a "goth" (oh no, wait, she isn't, right.), and hated the fact that it was another shitty vampire novel. Why can't I ever read about good vampire novels these days? What's with all the horribleness that takes away the mystique vibe from vampire-theme books? I really want them to burn.Lucy Szabo is a 16 year old with diabetes. She is another angsty character that you CAN'T relate t [...]


    4. The novel entitled Sweetblood by Peter Hautman is about a diabetic teenaged girl named Lucy who throughout the book goes on a quest of self realization. Lucy is introduced to us as a vampire-obsessed goth whose main goal is to show as little warmth as possible to the people in her community. For example, at one point in the text, she says that she wants to go throughout the whole day without smiling or saying anything to any one. She also uses her interest in Vampirism to isolate herself from he [...]


    5. I really loved this book when I was in Middle School, and I re-read it recently, expecting a great story and fond memories. Didn't get either. Instead, the portrayal of the goths in this book annoyed me, as did the ending. The whole idea of conformity=happiness was a little too much for me, not to mention how all her problems seemed to come from Lucy being 'different', and how they all fixed themselves after she started dressing 'normal' again. It reminded me too much of the ending of Speak. I p [...]


    6. A rather fantastic book about being a pissed-off diabetic teen, in some ways a bit like reliving high school (except I didn't have nearly as many quality snarky comments as Lucy does and at no point did vampires figure into my life). And at one point while reading my blood sugars went low while her's were also low so everything got a bit trippy.Some notes: This is not actually a vampire book, if you want blood-sucking fiends you should read something else. As far as reading quality goes this boo [...]


    7. After enjoying his newest book, I grabbed this off the public library shelf and glanced at the first page, only intending to see what it was about before I lined up my library books for reading, and I got swept up by his prose, once again deftly transparent. I was lost in the story within seconds. This is a YA novel about a angsty girl with Type I diabetes who is flailingly angry about it and not sure where to put the anger. Add a vampire chatroom, a creepy stalker guy who throws goth parties, a [...]


    8. There are many components to a book. Plots, settings, and characters are all complex parts to the puzzle. Genres are also a large component when it comes to any book. There's an abundance of different genres out there. From Autobiographies to Science Fiction novels, each and every book has a different category. The book that I just read by Pete Hautman, was "SweetBlood." It fits into the category of "Teen Fiction" with a morbid twist. The girl in the story has a perception of life that can be vi [...]


    9. This was a very interesting book. It was about a girl named Lucinda who happened to be a diabetic. She had a theory that diabetics were the real and original vampires. She talked on vampire chat rooms and thought the "poser" vampires were so annoying. No one would believe her theory. She even wrote a paper about it for english and her parents and teacher wanted her to see a shrink. Then one day she went to a "goth" party where she met an interesting but strange guy. He understood her very well m [...]


    10. I thought it was kind of entertaining although I couldn't really relate much. Lucy Szabo is a sixteen year old girl with diabetes and has her own theories on vampirism. She meets some pedophile online whom never grew up and proclaims himself to be a vampire. Lucy starts losing grip of her grades, relationships and health. This book burns a few hours; it's only 180 pages. It also gives us these patronizing life lessons of not meeting strangers online, having to respect your elders, avoiding drugs [...]


    11. For all the vampire lovers out there, here's another one. I would give it to those blood-sucking students though it lacks a little bit of depth. There isn't much plot and the main character, Lucy, isn't too memorable, yet it scrapes by with just enough vampire lore to qualify. Vampires aside, Lucy's character fights diabetes, which is why she is so stuck on vampires. Hautman paints the picture of kids living with diabetes and how much is rules their lives. Pick it up just for the education on di [...]


    12. Absolutely terrible. 176 pages about a mopey teenager with diabetes who thinks she's similar to a vampire. If I hadn't borrowed it from the library I would have trashed it. (SPOILER) The book leads up to her meeting this guy "Draco" in real-life from a chatroom who she believes is a vampire. Turns out he's just some dirty old man. She's quick to change her life around from a goth-like behavior and goes straight after his encounter. End of story.


    13. I was diagnosed as Type 1 at the age of nine in 1963. Home blood testing wasn’t an option; I peed in a cup and put in a strip, that gave you an average over the last 3-4 hours. I did have to do only one injection a day. My grandfather ( who lived with us) did tell me the day I got home from the hospital, “People die from that.” I also recall arguing with folks in junior high when Kennedy’s Fitness Program kicked in that told me repeatedly, “ Doing the lengthy run before lunch won’t b [...]


    14. When I high school vampires were the big thing just about every where. So of course i decided to read all about vampires after twilight. I found this book in the school library. I decided to read it again because I couldn't quite remember some things in the book. I think this would be a good book for students who don't feel the don't have a place. This book goes into the life of a young girl who is stuck with a life long disease and she tries to find a place before it is to late.WarningsDrugs - [...]


    15. This an interesting story of a high school girl names Lucy who struggles with diabetes. She's into dressing goth and has few friends. There are no vampires just the kind she meets on a web sight called Transylvania. She has a theory that the vampire myth started due to people suffering from diabetes in the middle ages. She has problems with her parents and teachers.It was an okay read and it certainly gives you a real picture of how people suffer with this disease.



    16. Wow! What an amazing, intriguing book. Hartman turns the teen vampire trope on its head in this well-told story of a diabetic girl struggling to come to grips with her life and her disease.



    17. The book was honestly isn't how I expected it to be. It's really good and the story itself is interesting. I don't absolutely love it but it made me want to keep reading.


    18. Lucy Szabo is a diabetic that believes the first vampires were just like her; however everyone else around her seems a little hesitant to accept her ideas. Lucy has what her family like to describe as “social” problems and therefore sees a psychiatrist who she believe doesn’t understand her at all. With her black hair, fishnets, army boots, and all around “goth” look she doesn’t have many close friends accept for her childhood friend Mark. But then she gets drawn in by the Transylvan [...]



    19. Have you ever felt different, like no one understands you? That's how Lucy feels in the book Sweet Blood by Pete Hautman. Lucy is a sixteen year old girl suffering from diabetes. She has done a lot of research on diabetes and now believes that in the olden times "vampires" were really just people showing signs of diabetes. She writes a paper, explaining her theory, for a class and it gets her in trouble with her parents and school. Her parents begin to believe that maybe she is getting to weird [...]


    20. Sweet Blood Review Christina Nash Lucy Szabo is a teenage girl with diabetes. Lucy has gotten A’s in school before this year but for some reason now her grades are dropping and she is having trouble regulating her blood sugar. Lucy has been getting into lots of arguments with her parents lately and she thinks it’s no big deal until she gets her computer taken away. A new boy starts going to Lucy’s school one day who invites Lucy to a party at an old building called to carfax. Lucy meet [...]


    21. When Luzy Szabo was six-years-old, she found a dying bat in her yeard. Not knowing what it was, other than a small critter, she picked it up and brought it to show her mother, who quickly beat it to death with a broom and threw it in the trash. When her father arrives home, he’s angry, and worried, as Lucy’s hands are covered with scratches. She knows they’re from berry bushes, but doesn’t want to get in trouble for being someplace she wasn’t stupposed to be, so she doesn’t say anyth [...]


    22. I feel like a lot of people failed to see the point. Lucy wasn't originally a Goth girl. Which, it's totally fine if she is, but she wasn't that way originally. She became that way when she was diagnosed with diabetes. It's almost like she sees her sickness as a punishment and dressed accordingly to show her anger. (I remember a part specifically where she paints a portrait of herself with her original hair color -- blonde -- and mentions how her hair wasn't always the color black). While I'm no [...]


    23. Sweetblood follows teenager Lucy Szabo as she deals with her diabetes and various people in the Goth subculture. I was prepared to give Sweetblood 3.5 stars at the penultimate chapter. It was a decent story, well-written; I found the theory about vampire legends being inspired by untreated diabetics to be fascinating. Overall, I liked it and would read it again.But the ending. The last chapter. Ugh. Really? Lucy (view spoiler)[ditches her black hair and Goth attire because she is a "changed" per [...]


    24. At first, I was thinking "oh, just another stupid vampire novel." I didn't notice the published date, of course, nor the author. I picked it up because of the cover. It looked interesting, even if it WAS about vampires. Well, upon reading the back, it's not about vampires at all, but diabetes, Goth culture (sort of), and being who you want to be. I also picked that up from reading the book, too, of course, but usually I would have put it down before getting to that. Thankfully, I noticed the aut [...]


    25. Lucy is an angry teenage diabetic who longs to be "normal," but nonetheless has a habit of dressing in black and haunting vampire chat rooms on the Internet. She's got some unique theories about how vampire lore likely originated from people seeing the affects of untreated diabetes. When she writes a paper for her creative writing class outlining her theories, all of the adults in her life become maddeningly concerned. Her parents confiscate her computer, which sends Lucy into a self-destructive [...]


    26. I read this book when I was younger, like 15 or so, and enjoyed it at the time. It wasn't action packed or insanely exciting per say, but there was an accurate portrayal of teenage angst. I do think this book is more for a younger audience, it isn't something I'd read now. However it was, as far as I remember (granted after all these years, I wouldn't give my memory 100 % credit) more on the realistic side. At least in the sense that it wasn't about supernatural vampires, but rather people who b [...]


    27. Lucy is an angsty teenager who has diabetes and is certainly not okay with it. She feels that it controls her life and rebels in the usual ways - grades slipping, breaking rules, delving into topics that make her parents uncomfortable. Her parents and teachers react in a way that is in its own way over dramatic by making her see a shrink over a paper she wrote about historic vampirism. I remember reading this book very quickly in high school and thinking that theory that the main character has a [...]
