Zombie Queen of Newbury High by Amanda Ashby

Ashby, Amanda Zombie Queen of Newbury High, 208 p. Speak (Penguin), 2009. $7.99. Language : PG (OMG variety). All Mia wants to do is make sure that her hunky boyfriend Rob, football superstar, doesn’t dump her just before the before due to the machinations of the school tramp. Instead of a simple love spell, however, she unleashes a zombie-creating mess instead – and she is their queen (which means that they want to fatten her up to eat first). Only with the help of zombie hunter Chase does she have even the slightest chance of reversing the spell. Mia’s campy antics are a hoot to read in this fast-paced adventure. There’s not a lot required of the reader except to sit back and enjoy. MS, HS – OPTIONAL. Cindy, Library-Teacher.
