Title: ZOMBIE QUEEN OF NEWBURY HIGH
Author: Amanda Ashby
Publisher: Penguin Group
Audience: Young Adult
Setting: Newbury - "Twilight Zone" - California
Mia Everett was doomed.
Why I chose this book: I laughed when I read that the main character casts a spell that turns her entire Senior class into zombies just before Prom, because it sounds like something I might have done in high school. I HAD to read it.
Why I read it to the end: I read it in a few hours of one afternoon during my Christmas break from work. I know some authors take offense to people reading their books so quickly when it takes them so long to complete them. And in a sense I understand this. But I argue that it's a testament to the work that they've done. I've read books that have taken me weeeeeeeks to finish, because I was bored and could put it down easily - and take a long time to come back to it, too. If a book grabs me and I read it in one sitting, I think that's a good thing, despite what I read from authors.
My rating: 3.75/5
