" Fifteen year old Megan Berry is a Zombie Settler by birth, which means she's part-time shrink to a bunch of dead people to a bunch of dead people with a whole lot issues."
All Meghan wants to do is go to homecoming. Unfortunately, every time she leaves the house she gets trailed by a bunch of slobbering undead, making it a little hard to score a date. Not that it matters. Her crush, fellow settler ( and total hottie) Ethan, treats her like an annoying kid sister anyway.
When someone in school starts using black magic to turn average, angsty Undead into flesh-eating Zombies, it's up to Megan to spot the Zombie apocalypse. Her life- and more importantly, homecoming- depends on it. ( From back cover of ARC)
Your So Undead To Me was a mix of romance, friendships, and zombie settling. In this book all of the zombie settlers have their own secret society and rules they follow. I thought this was a really unique turn to the whole zombie world. Meghan was a funny and honest character most of the time which made me come to enjoy reading about her life. The only problem I had was her belief that her whole world was going to be ruined if she didn't go to homecoming with a hot date and her obsession over Ethan. So, when it was kind of dropped and replaced with the other side of her, I was hooked. Another part I enjoyed was the mystery behind who was doing all the black magic. I thought I had it figured out from the beginning who it was. Though, as the story progressed the person behind it all became much clearer. I was truly surprised. Lastly, I enjoyed the whole kicking zombie butt part of the story and hope there is plenty more of it to come in the sequel. Though, I wish there was more of Meghan being a "therapist" to the zombies, because it could have been an interesting part of the story. So, I hope Stacey will include more of that, too.
Overall, Your So Undead to Me was a pleasant surprise. I had never read a book about zombies or zombie settling before. Though, I had seen countless movies about both. So, when I first began reading this I was a little bit weary, but in the end I loved this book a ton. I can't wait to read the next book in the series, Undead Much, and whatever else Stacey comes up with.
Your So Undead To Me will be released on January 22, 2009. You can preorder it here.
