Things go terribly wrong when Nathan’s nemesis, Rodney the bully, forms his own team to go up against Nathan. Soon Rodney and his pals start to notice some very odd things about Nathan. Will they discover Nathan’s secret and expose his zombie identity to the entire world?

Praise for My Rotten Life:
“The first book in a promising new series introduces likable characters beset by unusual but humorous circumstances…will appeal to reluctant readers”—School Library Journal
“The over-the-top narrative will appeal to readers who like their humor twisted, and might even have some wishing that they, too, could be a half-dead zombie.”—Publishers Weekly
“Nathan is a delightful hero—a former semi-nerd and frequent subject of smackdowns, adventitiously turned cool customer—which, to zombies, comes naturally.”—Kirkus Review
