When I first heard/read about this book I wasn't so sure I would like
it. Even though its got zombies, which are just plain cool in any form,
I wasn't sure how I felt about a zombie-shrink. I'm very happy to have
read this book however! Throughout much of it I kind of just wanted to
leap into the book with a chainsaw and be like Ash from the Evil Dead
movies, just because I felt so bad for Megan.

Megan had a good
life going for her and it seemed like it would only get better. Even
though I'm not convinced the quarterback she was so hot on was really
worth the time of day, I understood a lot of his appeal to her came
from the fact he was part of the popular crowd. A crowd she desperately
wanted to be part of. Of course what does any good turn in life
deserve? A zombie attack! Never underestimate the effect a zombie
attack can have on a romantic mood.

The relationship between her
and Ethan was kind of cute. It wasn't 'if he's not with my world is
over' critical, but neither did either of them take it lightly. It hit
just the right tone of teen love--the playfulness that can turn
serious, the first kisses that make your breathing irregular and the
protective need to still hold back a little to save yourself from any
future hurt. I think Stacey Jay really hit those feelings on the head.

The
black magic practicioner behind the Reanimated Corpses (that is the
red-eyed flesh eating Undead, not the Unsettled) is a surprise with a
capital S. I'm sure if I re-read the book I would pick up on the clues
now that I know what I'm looking for, but throughout the book the only
word that came to mind about the character was 'intense'. Actually the
last twenty pages or so are full of surprises.

I definately
enjoyed You Are So Undead To Me and hope to see more about this
'Settler' lifestyle. I wouldn't mind seeing more about Monica, sure
she's a complete witch with a B, but I'm interested to see how she
juggled all her popular crowd commitments with her Settler secret.
