Dont have sex, because you will turn into a vampire, and die.
Thats the message I picked up on in ‘Peeps’. Funny, because Westerfelds other book, Uglies, the message was dont pollute the environment. A bit of a difference in moral there…

Cal, unfortunately, misses out on this lesson–so after a drunken one night stand he ends up as a vampire. As you might have guessed, these are not your grandmother’s vampires
