My Rotten Life by David Lubar - ESSENTIAL

Lubar, David, My Rotten Life. Starscape. 2009. Pgs. 160.

Language: G, Violence: G, Sexual Content: G.


Ten-year-old Nathan’s life is fairly normal until the worst day of his life happens. The most popular girl in school tells him about a party, but says he’s not invited, the class bully picks on him, and he gets picked last in gym. When he meets Abigail, she convinces him to come to her uncle’s lab to try the Hurt-B-Gone: a serum that’s supposed to remove your bad feelings. Things go terribly wrong, however, when he gets doused with the serum and gets turned into an accidental zombie right as Abigail’s uncle gets arrested for having endangered plants in his lab. Nathan’s only hope: to race against time to find a cure before it’s too late and the zombie problem becomes permanent.

This book is a funny, well-written tale about trying to fit in with a zombie twist. Fans of David Lubar, humorous fiction, and science-fiction/fantasy will enjoy reading this book.
