Review: Zombie Queen of Newbury High by Amanda Ashby

(summary from goodreads)

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.

Review: Going into this book I really didn't think I would like it. The title made it sound a little cheesy, and it came out around the time that zombies were the new vampires. Suffice to say, I didn't think I would like it. 

I read this in one sitting (it's less than 200 pages) and found that I actually liked it quite a bit. The plot was a little predictable, as was the romance, but it was a pretty fun book. It sounds weird to say about a zombie book but it was almost...cute.

Mia and Chase were good characters, but that's all I really remember about them. Some of the dialogue between them and others sounded a bit unnatural, but it wasn't a big problem.

Overall, this was a fun book. It was predictable but still had a good plot. For such a short book it didn't go too fast, but it also didn't drag along. So pretty much, it's a good book to read if you're looking for something light and fun.

Sounds like a high school angsty romance with a twist. It sounds very amusing. I'll look out for it.
