"A super new edition to the paranormal young adult genre"
A Zombie Settler from birth, Megan Berry has been safe from
playing shrink to dead people for a good few years. Now her
powers seem to be waking up again and just in time for
homecoming. This doesn't bode well because nobody wants to
turn up to a dance with a bunch of corpses following you. So
Megan does what she has to and listens to the zombies and
lays them to rest. She just hopes that her love, school and
social life won't be ruined forever by the undead.
Then when Megan thinks things can't get worse they do.
Someone in school is using black magic to make the normal
zombies into the flesh-eating kind. At first nobody believes
Megan as she tries to narrow things down to a few suspects
but then things get a little too big for her to handle and
more importantly the homecoming dance is in danger!
It took me a while to get my hands on a copy of this book
because it wasn't easy to find here. However I got hold of
this the other day and couldn't resist starting it on the
bus home. Totally sucked into the new concept of a 'Zombie
Settler' I of course felt the need to finish reading this as
soon as possible.
This was a really fun read as well as being a little spooky.
The new girl on the block, Megan Berry, is really nice and I
can't wait to read more about her. I loved the fact that the
zombies were actually 'normal' and just looking for help and
the whole settler aspect was fresh and unique.
A super new edition to the paranormal young adult genre. I
hope Stacey Jay will be writing more soon because I really
want more Megan, Ethan and zombies.
