Bad Taste in Boys

Bad Taste in Boys (Kate Grable #1)   

Kate Garble is the nerdy science girl with frizzy hair. She helps the football team with Gatorade and any medical help. She wants to be in the medical field and thank goodness for that.
When guys on the team start puking up black and acting all funny, Kate wonders if it has something to do with those unnamed vials in Coach's office. Has he been injecting them with it? Steroids? Steroids wouldn't make someone puke black, skin go grey, fingers break off, and bite people, would it? It becomes clear to Kate those vials were filled with possibly a zombie virus and she must find the cure before it spreads to anyone she loves, like her bro Jonah, or that cute Aaron guy. 

Kate seemed like a normal chick. I could associate with her. She was believable. She wasn't super girly, had friends, and was liked and even managed to find a guy. I enjoy the non-love story. She just had a crush on the Aaron guy and yes, they kissed. She also had epilepsy which was different in this type of genre but it played into the story.

I liked the idea of injections of enhancers making people into zombies. I like when you see the development of the disease instead of it always being there or zombies already existed. Jonah, the brother, was awesome too but I didn't feel he was 15, more like 12 and annoying.
