Ten-year-old Nathan Abercrombie is having a really bad day. First, Shawna Lanchester, the prettiest girl in his class, doesn't invite him to her party. Then he gets picked last in gym class. Things couldn't get any worse until he gets doused with an experimental serum that turns him into a half-dead zombie
Nathan soon discovers that being half dead isn't all bad. He doesn't need any sleep, so he can stay up all night and play games online. He doesn't feel any pain, so there's no need to worry about Rodney the bully anymore. Still, Nathan would rather be human. Will he find a cure? Or will Nathan be half-dead forever?
Fans of David Lubar's popular Weenies short story collections--which have sold more than one million copies--will love "My Rotten Life," the first of a series of hilariously rotten adventures starring Nathan Abercrombie, Accidental Zombie.
As Halloween approaches, new generations of literary zombies are rising from the dead and shambling towards the bookshelves — ready to entertain (and frighten) readers of all ages. More at NPR.org
