100) Zombie Blondes by Brian James

The Blurb :

From the moment Hannah Sanders arrived in town, she felt there was something wrong.

A lot of houses were for sale, and the town seemed infected by an unearthly quiet. And then, on Hannah’s first day of classes, she ran into a group of cheerleaders—the most popular girls in school.

The odd thing was that they were nearly identical in appearance: blonde, beautiful, and deathly pale.

But Hannah wants desperately to fit in—regardless of what her friend Lukas is telling her: if she doesn’t watch her back, she’s going to be blonde and popular and dead—just like all the other zombies in this town. . . .

My Thoughts :

This book has been sitting on my shelf for a while and I actually forgot it was there. Hidden behind some nice thick hardbacks I pulled this one out for my read-a-thon. The title of the book made me curious and the cover looked cool. The blurb sounded like it could be a good read.

However what I was expecting didn't happen. I was sure this was going to be a Heather Brewer or Marlene Perez type of YA with a cool string of events. What I got was a slightly boring, drawn out tale about a girl who finally finds a home but doesn't want to stay.

The zombie theme was weak and of course all about the cheerleaders. Hannah herself was at least a little interesting but for some reason she just didn't make me want to like her very much. This was one of those books I kept reading till the end because I was expecting something amazing to happen but found myself arriving at the end of the book still waiting for some big save the story.

I am sure this story would be loved by some Young Readers but this, for me, was just weak and uneventful.
