You Are So Undead To Me


Megan Berry's social life is so dead. Literally.

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 hard when your dates keep getting interrupted by a bunch of slobbering Undead.

Things are about to get even worse 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.


At first, once I finished the book, I wasn't sure what to think. As a matter of fact I am still having trouble putting my thoughts about it into words. I know I loved it, I did not want to put it down and I can not wait for the next installment. Megan, a typical teeanager, just wants to be normal, popular, liked by a boy...oh, and not someone zombie's come to when they are restless.

I think what I loved most about this book is that Stacey Jay took a normal teenage day in the beginning and morphed it into the beginning of the rest of Megan's life. Not only that, but it was such a smooth transition. Everything that needed explaining in this book was explained and I wasn't left wondering in the end about how this or that happened, just what comes next. It was a thrilling read with expected and unexpected twists and turns they left you wanting more.

In a way this book reminded me of Meg Cabot's Mediator Series, another all time favorite. Real life clashes with the unreal but leaves you questioning whether it could actually happen. This is another one you should pick up and keep up with when the next few come out. Stacey Jay did a fantastic job by keeping me wanting more and I am sure she will do the same for you.
