From the moment Hannah Sanders arrived in town, she felt there was something wrong.
A lot of houses were for sale, and the town seemed infected by an unearthly quiet. And then, on Hannah’s first day of classes, she ran into a group of cheerleaders—the most popular girls in school.
The odd thing was that they were nearly identical in appearance: blonde, beautiful, and deathly pale.
But Hannah wants desperately to fit in—regardless of what her friend Lukas is telling her: if she doesn’t watch her back, she’s going to be blonde and popular and dead—just like all the other zombies in this town. . . .
Brian James is the author of several notable books including Pure Sunshine and Dirty Liar. He lives in a small town in upstate New York that may or may not be overrun with zombies. He is currently researching the matter . . . very carefully.
Praise for Zombie Blondes: “James has created a believable novel about starting over, making friends, bullying, and ostracism, while adding a dash of the supernatural… readers will still give a rousing cheer to James’s take on teenage issues.”--School Library Journal “Narrated by Hannah Sanders, a new kid in a very strange town, 'Zombie Blondes' takes its time making the case that the bitchy teen queens are actually deadly. It's tremendously readable stuff, though: James does a good job showing the allure of popularity even while Hannah tries to stay above it.”--San Francisco Chronicle Praise for Brian James: “The language is raw yet poetic; Chan’s voice is appropriate and fresh. The author has done a fine job of presenting the issues surrounding teen homelessness.”—School Library Journal, on Tomorrow, Maybe “A riveting story. . . . Powerful, compelling, and, in the end, almost sweet.”—Booklist, on Dirty Liar
