So since prom season is upon us, I thought it was a good time to read a prom type book. And here is my review…

Title: Zombie Queen Of Newbury High
Author: Amanda Ashby

Summary (from back of book/B& Quiet, unpopular, non-cheerleading Mia is blissfully happy. She is dating super hot football god Rob, and he actually likes her and asked her to prom! Enter Samantha—cheerleading goddess and miss popularity— who starts making a move for Rob. With prom in a few days, Mia needs to act fast. So she turns to her best friend, Candice, and decides to do a love spell on Rob. Unfortunately, she ends up inflicting a zombie virus onto her whole class, making herself their leader! At first she is flattered that everyone is treating her like a queen. But then zombie hunter hottie Chase explains they are actually fattening her up, because in a few days, Mia will be the first course in their new diet. She's sure she and Chase can figure something out, but she suggests that no one wear white to prom, because things could get very messy.

My Review: I read this Friday during school, I couldn’t put it down, it was so funny. I love how there where references to Supernatural (the TV show, they also referenced Buffy but I don’t watch that so those were lost on me). It’s a zombie book, but not overpoweringly so. There isn’t a lot of gore so if you're squeamish don’t worry you’ll be fine, I found myself laughing out loud several times while reading this book, you’ll be fine. Read this! You will not be disappointed.
