Sixteen-year-old Rebecca Herrera Hayes faces every teenager's biggest nightmares: bad skin, bad hair, and worse . . . turning into one of the living dead. Becca's life changes forever when her cousin Spence comes back to their small Wisconsin town carrying a deadly secret— he's becoming a zombie, a fate he shares with her through an accidental scratch.
Now she must cope with weird physical changes and habits no girl wants to be noticed for. But most of all, she needs to find something, anything, to stop this deadly transformation before it is too late.
"For me, this is a new vision of a tried and tested genre with realistic consequences including mobs and discrimination.I’ll be honest, of all the zombie books I’ve read, this one is a refreshingly girly book..."--Rebbie's Reviews
* "...GIRL Z is a different type of zombie apocalypse story, especially recommended for fans of the genre!" - Midwest Book Review.
* "....The story is well written and the timing throughout the story is just right. As a fan of anything ZOMBIE related, I can truly say that this novel is a much needed “Breath of fresh air”! - Dina B. Reed, "zombie" actress, One Last Sunset
* "Written from Becca's point of view, we get a narrow and very realistic view of this chaotic new world from a self-absorbed teenager's tunnel vision. A very fun and readable introduction to a new series!" --Dana Fredsti, author of Plague Town & Plague Nation
