WHY MY LOVE LIFE SUCKS is the funny YA science-fantasy novel about Gilbert Garfinkle, a teenage super tech geek whose plans for inventing the perfect future are derailed by his worst nightmare: a gorgeous vampire who wants to turn him into her platonic best friend--forever! Discover what makes the ultimate geek the ultimate hero in the funniest science-fiction series since the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
Seventeen-year-old super tech geek Gilbert Garfinkle knew the future was going to be perfect, because he was going to invent it himself. He had it all planned. But a funny thing happened on the way to the future...
Amber is the most beautiful girl he's ever met, way out of his league. He can't understand why she asks to go home with him, asks him to sit next to her on his vintage Star Wars sheets, and starts kissing him.
Now once bitten and twice terrified out of his brilliant mind, Gilbert lies alone in his room in the dark, paralyzed, and pondering life's ultimate question: "Why me?"
WHY MY LOVE LIFE SUCKS has been compared to a Christopher Moore novel for teens. It's the first book in THE LEGEND OF GILBERT THE FIXER, a series that proves it takes the ultimate geek to be the ultimate hero. This book is perfect for anyone who is proud to call him or herself a geek, particularly fans of Star Wars, Star Trek, Doctor Who, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Marvel comics (like Spider-Man and the Avengers), and anything that combines romance, comedy, and science fiction or fantasy.
