"This zombie world is deathly dangerous but totally fun."
It is the most fabulous cheer leader pyramid ever and Karen
Vera is on the top enjoying the attention. Unfortunately
some stupid guy brings her a lot of unwanted attention and
the pyramid collapses. Before Karen has time to take in what
has happened, she is lying on the pavement looking
However death is not the end for Karen. She learns that she
is a genetically undead zombie. Freakishly alive without a
pulse she is sent off to DEAD high, a boarding school for
the 'death challenged'. But death isn't the only challenge
for Karen in her new school. Her roommate hates her, she has
to eat animal brains to stay in shape, nobody thinks she is
cool and worst of all someone is attacking students and
harvesting their brains!
Although not everything is bad. A new BFF is helping her
find out if the gorgeous Gavin is the brain stealer. She
doesn't want to be seen with him if he is the one sending
the students to certain zombie death.
I really enjoyed Stay Jay's previous zombie books about
Megan Berry so My So Called Death was a must buy for me.
Undead Much? and You Are So Undead to Me had me giggling and
eager for more. This new book from the zombie loving author
was no different and I am glad I didn't wait around to get
my hands on a copy.
This book is aimed at young adults but the title, cover and
blurb were just too good to pass up on. Not enough books in
the paranormal genre characterise zombies as a good and fun
topic so I love what Stacey Jay has done to these paranormal
outcasts. Slightly different to the Zombie Settler series
this book managed to have all the elements I have come to
enjoy from the author but it had a new and fresh feel to it.
If you like reading young adult and like a little laugh but
need a little mystery then you can't go wrong with this
read. I am really looking forward to seeing what the author
comes up with next and I hope she sticks to zombies.
Although I would be interested in seeing what this author
could do with something more adult I am happy with the YA
content too. Give this a try yourself or gift it to a
daughter, niece or some other young adult who likes a bit of
paranormal. This zombie world deathly dangerous but totally fun.
