MY LIFE AS A WHITE TRASH ZOMBIE
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Urban Fantasy
For white-trash delinquent Angel Crawford, dying was the best thing that ever happened to her. Uber-talented Rowland takes a break from her “Demon” series to produce a wonderful story with a zombie heroine who is endearing and engaging. This unique twist on a coming-of-age story explores a young woman’s journey toward self-acceptance in the face of long odds. Throw in the need for brains and a nasty serial killer and presto … you have the recipe for a terrific read!
Dropout and loser Angel Crawford knows something is weird after she wakes up in the hospital having survived a car crash. As far as the hospital knows, Angel overdosed on drugs and was found naked by the side of the road. Strangely, an anonymous benefactor gives Angel a cooler with some thick frappuccino-like drinks along with instructions about her new job as a coroner’s van driver. A confused Angel complies with the stranger’s request, but gets really weirded out when, during an autopsy, she craves the brains. For the first time in her life, Angel has a job, is making friends and moving forward … but a serial killer could destroy all her newfound happiness. (DAW, Jul., 320 pp., $7.99)
