What if everyone in your high school became a zombie except for you and a couple of friends? What if no one noticed? Not parents. Not teachers. Not the police. Not even neighbors. What would you do? How would you survive going to school every day when you don't want to get eaten? That's the problems facing Margot Jean Johnson and her best friend Sybil in Never Slow Dance with a Zombie. From official release/information:
Product Description: Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion meets Night of the Living Dead in this laugh-out-loud debut YA novel by Emmy Award-nominated TV writer E. Van Lowe
Principal Taft's 3 Simple Rules for Surviving a Zombie Uprising:
Rule #2: Never travel alone. Move in packs. Follow the crowd. Zombies detest blatant displays of individuality.
Rule #3: If a zombie should attack, do not run. Instead, throw raw steak at to him. Zombies love raw meat. This display of kindness will go a long way.
Then Margot and Sybil arrive at school one day to find that most of the student body has been turned into flesh-eating zombies. When kooky Principal Taft asks the girls to coexist with the zombies until the end of the semester, they realize that this is the perfect opportunity to live out their high school dreams. All they have to do is stay alive....
