Fifteen-year-old Megan Berry is a Zombie Settler by birth, which means she’s part-time shrink to a bunch of dead people with a whole lot of issues.All Megan wants is to be normal – and go to homecoming, of course. Unfortunately, it’s a little difficult when your dates keep getting interrupted by a bunch of slobbering Undead.

Things are about to get even more complicated for Megan. Someone in school is using black magic to turn average, angsty Undead into flesh-eating Zombies, and it’s looking like homecoming will turn out to be a very different kind of party – the bloody kind.

Megan must stop the Zombie apocalypse descending on Carol, Arkansas. Her life – and more importantly, homecoming – depends on it.

I have a confession: I thought this was going to be an uber-stupid teenage novel about the right hair or getting the cute boy. I thought was going to make fun of this novel and wonder how it even was published.   But I was wrong (mostly).  Megan is a teenager.  She does care about making the dance team and getting a date for the Homecoming Dance.  But she’s also a settler with a lot more power than she thinks.  She make act immature at times, but she is fifteen.  It’s refreshing to see a young adult novel where the young adult actually acts like a young adult, not an adult stuck in a teenage body.  I think I would have been over the moon with this book if I was fifteen.  Megan Berry would have been my hero.  Even as an almost-30-year-old, I really enjoyed this book.  I enjoyed it so much that I picked up the sequel to read next.
