"Q: HOW MANY ZOMBIES DOES IT TAKE TO RUIN A SOCIAL LIFE?
A: NOT MANY.

Synopsis: Fifteen-year-old Megan Berry is a Zombie Settler by birth, which means she’s part-time shrink to a bunch of dead people with a whole lot of issues. All Megan wants is to be normal—and go to homecoming, of course. Unfortunately, it’s a little difficult when your dates keep getting interrupted by a bunch of slobbering Undead. Things are about to get even more complicated for Megan. Someone in school is using black magic to turn average, angsty Undead into flesh-eating Zombies, and it’s looking like homecoming will turn out to be a very different kind of party—the bloody kind. Megan must stop the Zombie apocalypse descending on Carol, Arkansas. Her life—and more importantly, homecoming—depends on it.

Review:
Stacy Jay brings us a story of a 15 year old Zombie Settler. The plot is quite attracting and attention grabbing. Before I read the book I had high expectations, mainly because this is the one of my firsts zombie books to read. From the beginning the writing is engaging and interesting, that you just want more and more from it. There is one point or another that it slows down and loses its appeal. Then there were times when if felt boring and I found myself hesitating for the book to end. As it got into the story it became predictable, and it lost its appeal. If we overlook that this is an amazing book. I like Megan's character, and how she could handle so much responsibility at a young age. One of the things that make this book exciting was the humor. That kept entertained. Although, it was stereotyped, I would definitely recommend it, because it left me waiting for more in Undead Much? the sequel to this book. It will come out sometime in early 2010.

I'm so sad to hear that this book didn't live up to its potential.
