Never Slow Dance with a Zombie by E. Van Lowe (NY: Tor Teen, 2009).
Fun read about a girl whose goal is to become popular in high school. While the chance Margot Jean Johnson gets isn't optimal--a virus turns most of the kids in her high school into zombies--she takes it and runs. Lots of good shots at how craptastic it is to be at the bottom of the high school food chain, but how life at the top isn't all it's cracked up to be. The most popular boy in school for a boyfriend--when you have to feed him raw meat so he won't eat you? Naturally Margot learns valuable lessons about life, love, and friendship.
Great for grades 6 and up.
