Review: You Are So Undead to Me by Stacey Jay

You Are So Undead to Me

by Stacey Jay

Razorbill (Penguin)

ISBN: 9781595142252

Release Date: January 22, 2009

from the publisher's website:

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.

my thoughts:

I LOVE this book. Yeah I know I always say this, but that doesn't make it any less true. I was hooked from page one. Megan's story was a great read. As with any book I read I really need to feel the characters I'm reading about. Stacey Jay made Megan's voice come through so clearly. I could understand her frustrations with Zombie settling and yet I could also understand the need for a Zombie Settler to exist.

I can't wait for Undead Much? to release. I really want to read more about Megan and Ethan and even see more of Monica. Stacey Jay has gained a loyal reader in me and I'm so excited for more. :)
