You Are So Undead To Me by Stacey Jay - Review
Megan Berry is 15 and obsessed with homecoming. But she’s also a Zombie Settler, born with the powers to help the undead, listen to their unfinished business, and lead them back to their graves. Her powers had disappeared for a while, leading her to believe they were gone for good but now, just as she is about to date a very hot guy, they are back, as are the undead. And she is so frustrated. I mean, how can you go out if you are constantly worried about being followed by a slobbering zombie? Oh, and nobody is meant to know about her powers. So much for homecoming.
To make matters even worse, someone is using black magic to turn the undead into Zombies – you know, the flesh-eating kind. As these attacks become more frequent, no one else seems to see how dangerous it’s becoming so it’s up to Megan to find out what’s happening, who is doing it, and maybe, just maybe, save homecoming, and persuade her old friend Ethan to see her as something other than an annoying little sister.
If you are a Buffy fan (as of course I am) you will love this book, which has much the same feel to it and is a quick, light, fun read – with a cool twist at the end.
