Someone’s been a very bad zombie.
Super-smartie Kate Grable gets to play doctor, helping out her high school football team. Not only will the experience look good on her college apps, she gets to be this close to her quarterback crush, Aaron. Then something disturbing happens. Kate finds out that the coach has given the team steroids. Except the vials she finds don’t exactly contain steroids. Whatever’s in them is turning hot gridiron hunks into mindless, flesh-eating…zombies. Unless she finds an antidote, no one is safe. Not Aaron, not Kate’s brother, not her best friend…not even Kate…It’s scary. It’s twisted. It’s sick. It’s high school.

What would you do when you find out your school becomes infected with a zombie virus. Yeah a normal person would make sure they run and stay away. No not Kate Grable, she is going to do what ever it takes to find a cure for this desease.

I enjoyed this book so much! It's a total zombie book but it is hilarious at the same time. While reading I was laughing out loud numerous times. This is a fast and easy read and I can not think of someone who would not enjoy this book. It's a total hoot.
Look don't read this book if you're looking for a serious zombie read because you are not going to find it reading this book. But if you want something entertaining this is the book to read.

I think Kate is one of my favorite characters I've read. She is a total nerd, she has a brain and she uses it wisely, she's funny and knows how to kick some zombie butt. Kate isn't someone you would picture being a heroine but she is definitely my favorite one.

This is the type of book you pick up when you're feeling down and when you finish it you will feel better immediately. Or just pick it up for a good laugh and lots of fun!

My rating: 4/5

1 opmerking:

  1. I love me a good zombie story and Bad Taste in Boys is a particularly fun tale of limb loss, undead cannibalism and really bad breath. Kate is the perfect heroine and much closer to real life than your standard fictional science geek. She may be socially awkward from time to time, but she's not a total outcast. She has friends and a relatively normal family and a combination of insecurities and strengths that you would expect to find in any normal high school girl. The secondary characters - Kate's friends, her brother, Aaron, the zombies - are also well drawn and even though we don't know their life stories, they're three dimensional individuals.
