I kissed a zombie, and I liked it

Teen Fiction SELZER

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Selzer (Andrew North Blows Up the World) takes a delightfully wicked but thoughtful poke at teenage infatuations, vampire groupies, and pretentious goths. It's been years since "post-human" vampires, werewolves, and other undead creatures came "out of the coffin" to protest Megamart's exploitation of zombies as stockroom workers. But 18-year-old Alley Rhodes can't help rolling her eyes at her classmates' continuing obsession ("teenage vampires are a pain in the ass-they never actually mature... but dating one has become the ultimate status symbol"). Then moody singer Doug catches her heart, and she's soon reconsidering her plan to flee Iowa for college in Seattle. She loves his authentic goth look (pale skin, unkempt hair, "moth-eaten suit"), but she's forgotten the first rule of modern dating-Google him. Doug died four years ago, and he's still wearing the suit he was buried in. Now all of her preconceptions are out the window and she has critical decisions to make. With snappy dialogue and a light, funny touch, Selzer creates a readable examination of love, self-sacrifice, and where to draw the line before you lose yourself. Ages 12-up. (Jan.)
