Dead is the New Black by Marlene Perez - ADVISABLE

Perez, Marlene Dead is the New Black, 190 p. Harcourt, 2008. Language - G (8 swears).


Daisy is the only one is her family without psychic powers. But her curiosity and detective feelers are aroused when Samantha, the head cheerleader and FORMER best friend, comes back to town sporting a new "dead" look. Something weird is happening to the other girls on the cheerleading squad, something that may include vampires. Against her better judgment, Daisy may have to join the cheerleading squad to get to the bottom of all of this.

Out in paperback right now. Perez continues the recent trend towards books about the undead and related creepy others with a funny and lovable (but still creppy) entry. Perfect for lovers of the genre, including reluctant readers.
