My Rotten Life (Nathan Abercrombie, Accidental Zombie #1)



by

Fifth grader Nathan feels like he has nothing going for him and he feels pretty down about it. Abigail, a fellow "loser" tells him she can get her uncle to cure him with Hurt-Be-Gone. Instead of just taking a sip of the concoction, Nathan spills it all over himself and finds he can't feel a thing. Soon he isn't even breathing or blinking....he has become a zombie! Abigail, Nathan and his friend Mookie must find the elements of the cure before Nathan stays a zombie forever!

Cute, quick, smart young read. Although Nathan doesn't crave brains and can still talk like a human, he is still a zombie. He is also a young kid just dealing with popularity, pressure in sports, and even his friends deal with some heavy things like dead dads and being overweight and being smart. This book surprised me with those subjects.
Of course there was the stereotypical fat friend and dorky smart girl friend that enters the circle.
