Horror High School
Being in love with a zombie bites, but that won’t stop true love.
Horror High School: Return of the Loving Dead is like no zombie book you’ve ever read. Meet Amber Vanderkamp, senior at Stephen E. King High School. Amber is poised for class valedictorian when she graduates this year and has her sights set on the New York Center for the Performing Arts for college.
Everything is wonderful in Amber’s world. She always gets the lead in her high school’s plays and is counting on the lead role in the school’s upcoming production of Romeo and Juliet to get a college scholarship for theater.
That is until her well-ordered world is thrown into chaos when her boyfriend, Zach Williams, dies and comes back as a zombie.
But she simply can’t turn her back on the love of her life, can she? How does she deal with the pressure? And will she remain committed to the boy she once considered her soul mate and future husband? Especially when her mother (with secrets of her own) is encouraging her to wait and experience more of the world.
And her flighty best friend, Jasmine, is acting even more peculiar ever since Zach has become a member of the undead club. Add in the class bullies, Caleb and Darla, who seem to be doing everything in their power to ruin Amber’s life and Zach’s existence, and all of the elements are present for a page-turning romp through a world where zombies, or “living impaired loved ones,” are a part of everyday life.

What do you do when somebody keeps trying to kill your boyfriend, even though he's already dead? I enjoyed this book because it contains an actual, well-plotted mystery and humor, not just guts and blood and teenage angst, though there's plenty of that, too. Young readers will engage with the book's valiant main characters; the serious over-achiever who always tries to do the right thing and her kooky and curious best friend who is searching for her real self through an amazing series of changes. Well written, with unusual, fun situations and plot twists, and interesting characters that we'll want to see again! Bring on the next book in this series!
Horrifically Hilarious, Ecstatically Exciting: Great Fun
DELIGHTFULLY refreshing! Finally, a YA paranormal- apocalyptic that keeps the drama where it belongs, in the background, settings, and plotting. Forget the high school drama divas; forget the teenage angst! This is serious business, a story I could not put aside. Well-written, humorous, realistic: the novel let me suspend from the very first page, as it should be. BRING ON THE SEQUEL!!! Love with the "living impaired" rocks!
