Q: How many zombies does it take to ruin a social life?
A: Not many.
Megan Berry is a Zombie Settler by birth, which means she's part-time shrink to a whole bunch of semi-dead people with killer issues. All Megan really wants is to go to homecoming, but when you're trailed by a bunch of slobbering corpses whenever you leave the house, it's kinda hard to score a date. Let's just say Megan's love life could use some major resuscitation.
Megan's convinced her life can't get any worse-until someone in school starts using black magic to turn average, angsty Undead into scary, hardcore flesh-eating Zombies. Now it's up to Megan to stop the Zombie apocalypse. Her life-and more importantly, the homecoming dance-depends on it.
Review: This is the first book I have read concerning zombies and I love it! The story was interesting, fast-paced, fun and exciting. Megan is a regular girl with a gift she would rather not have. She was easy to identify with even though she kind of seemed mature for a fifteen year old. My favorite character would have to be Ethan though because he is another example of the perfect guy. He is/was Megan's best friend from when they were younger. The details weren't boring, but instead they were necessary to the story's overall appearance. I liked the way the flashbacks were presented and I really like Megan's tone. Sometimes it can be sarcastic. From what I have read, it is a really original story with cool characters and great mood!
