When Ali and Doug start dating, Ali is falling so hard she doesn’t notice a few odd signs: he never changes clothes, his head is a funny shape, and he says practically nothing out loud. Finally Marie, the school paper’s fashion editor, points out the obvious: Doug isn’t just a really sincere goth. He’s a zombie. Horrified that her feelings could have allowed her to overlook such a flaw, Ali breaks up with Doug, but learns that zombies are awfully hard to get rid of—at the same time she learns that vampires, a group as tightly-knit as the mafia, don’t think much of music critics who make fun of vampires in reviews. . . .

This book is just adorable! It is fast paced and full of memorable lines that you will want to use yourself in conversation.This story is pretty predictable but it is so smartly written you will enjoy every word. This is pretty safe for younger teens since there is minimal sexual activity, some alcohol use and the main character of Alley navigates her way through all of them admirably. If you enjoy Marlene Perez and Kelly McClymber, you will love this one. I am off to find more books by this author.
