Life can suck when you're sixteen. It can suck even worse when you're not- quite- dead.
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.
The Z infection, however, has mutated, affecting younger persons like her, or those treated early enough, differently. Now she must cope with weird physical changes and habits no girl wants to be noticed for. Then she meets Gabe, a good-looking part-Z like her, and fears falling for him. After all, how can he, who shows hardly any Z symptoms, be interested in someone like her?
But time is running out... Becca needs his help as she and her cousin Carm search for their missing mothers and fight off hungry Zs.
Most of all, she needs to find something, anything, to stop this deadly transformation before it is forever too late.

I have to admit I was never a big fan of Zombie books or Zombie movies and then I watched Warm Bodies and had to ask myself are zombies SO BAD? So now I need to read Isaac Marion's book Warm Bodies as well as this one!
I know a lot of you identified Zombies as a topic you stay away from, Top Ten Lists, so I'm wondering what you think: Yes to Zombie books or No to Zombie books and possibly why if you have the time.
Waiting on Wednesday features upcoming releases and is hosted by Breaking the Spine.
