Karen Desonne is used to pretending to be something she's not. She's always passed as a normal, all-American teenager-with her friends, her family, and at school. It cost her the love of her life, and that she's dead, she's still passing-this time as alive.
Meanwhile, Karen's dead friends have been fingered in a high-profile murder, causing new anti-zombie regulations that have forced nearly all of Oakvale's undead into hiding. Karen soon learns that the "murder" was a hoax, staged by Pete Martinsburg and his anti-zombie zealots. Obtaining enough evidence to expose the fraud and prove her friends' innocence means doing the unthinkable: betraying her love by becoming Pete's girlfriend. Karen's only hope is that the enemy won't realize who she really is-because the consequences could be even worse than death.
