Zombie Queen of Newbury High - Amanda Ashby


Quiet, unpopular, non-cheerleading Mia is blissfully happy. She is dating super hot football god Rob, and he actually likes her and asked her to prom! Enter Samantha—cheerleading goddess and miss popularity— who starts making a move for Rob. With prom in a few days, Mia needs to act fast. So she turns to her best friend, Candice, and decides to do a love spell on Rob. Unfortunately, she ends up inflicting a zombie virus onto her whole class, making herself their leader! At first she is flattered that everyone is treating her like a queen. But then zombie hunter hottie Chase explains they are actually fattening her up, because in a few days, Mia will be the first course in their new diet. She’s sure she and Chase can figure something out, but she suggests that no one wear white to prom, because things could get very messy.



The plot, overall, was a very good one. It was interesting and it makes me want to gobble up a bunch more zombie books. This zombie obsession started with You Are So Undead to Me... since then, I've wanted to read a bunch of zombie books. This one was really cute. I did enjoy it a lot, though some parts of the book, especially with the romance, were a little bit cliche.


The characters were written well and were all very well defined. I really liked how Mia was described, and Chase, sigh, loveeed him. =) Overall, the characters were pretty good, though I would've liked a little more description with Mia's friend Candice.

Wow Factor:

Overall, this book was really good, and I enjoyed it a lot, though it was predictable in some places.

Otherrr!: Thank you to Lizzie at The Book Obsession for letting me borrow this book! =)
