Never Slow Dance With A Zombie

Summary: Principal Taft's 3 Simple Rules for Surviving a Zombie Uprising:

Rule #1: While in the halls, walk slowly and wear a vacant expression on your face. Zombies won't attack other zombies.

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.

On the night of her middle school graduation, Margot Jean Johnson wrote a high school manifesto detailing her goals for what she was sure would be a most excellent high school career. She and her best friend, Sybil, would be popular and, most important, have boyfriends. Three years later, they haven't accomplished a thing!

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....

My Thoughts: Honestly, I didn't know what to expect as I started this. I really wanted to love it, I did. The cover alone is cute and it is worth picking up. I have read bad and good reviews on this one. We are introduced to Margot and Sybil who are regular girls, who want to popular, and ask the popular guy to the carnival. Things don't go as planned and one of the girls does not go, and other one comes home. Come to find out, everyone a the carnival turns into zombies! They are asked to co-exist with the zombies. This book was just ok to me. I didn't love it, and it could have been a lot worst so I didn't hate it either. I think it is mainly for the younger crowd, or the people who don't read as many books as me a year. For example, I've noticed people who have blogs gave it a lower rating than ones who just read a few books a year. I think that bloggers just have higher opinions. It also may be better for 10-13 year olds. I can tell E Van Lowe put a lot of effort and creativity into this one so thank him for that! I do like zombies but this one just wasn't my favorite. If your a fan of zombies, you might like it. If your younger than me, you might also enjoy it. If your a fan of zombies, give it a try anyways.

Overall: Just ok. Probably read between new releases we are awaiting.

Cover: Love the cover! Its what drew me in in the first place. I love the flowers and just the overall look of it.
