You Are So Undead To Me - Stacey Jay


Summary:

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:

You Are So Undead To Me was the first zombie book I've read. Ever. But it definitely won't be the last. Stacey Jay did a good job with creating a wonderful zombie book and the Settler thing was just a nice little touch that I really liked!

First, let's get what I didn't like out of the way. Sometimes it seemed like Megan would be all, like, killing a zombie and being a tough chick, and then the next second she would be worrying about her clothes, or the Homecoming dance. It was like, woahhh, you were just killing a zombie here, and now you're worrying about that.

But other than that I really have no complaints. The ending was totally, 100% unpredictable for me. I had no clue what was coming and I was completely shocked! It will leave you hanging until the very end.

And while all this is going on, there's romance in there! The romance was written good, and, though predictable, it was cute! :D

Overall, though, Stacey Jay wrote a wonderful first novel. I look forward to reading books by her in the future.

Four hearts!




hope.
