September Zombie Week!

So guess what? August 29th to September 6th is September Zombie Week! It spotlights YA zombie books of 2009, especially the latest, Never Slow Dance With A Zombie by E. Van Lowe.

Never Slow Dance With A Zombie

Principal Taft's 3 Simple Rules for Surviving a Zombie Uprising:

Rule #1: While in the halls, walk slowly and wear a vacant expression on your face. Zombies won't attack other zombies.

Rule #2: Never travel alone. Move in packs. Follow the crowd. Zombies detest blatant displays of individuality.

Rule #3: If a zombie should attack, do not run. Instead, throw raw steak at to him. Zombies love raw meat. This display of kindness will go a long way.

On the night of her middle school graduation, Margot Jean Johnson wrote a high school manifesto detailing her goals for what she was sure would be a most excellent high school career. She and her best friend, Sybil, would be popular and, most important, have boyfriends. Three years later, they haven't accomplished a thing!

Then Margot and Sybil arrive at school one day to find that most of the student body has been turned into flesh-eating zombies. When kooky Principal Taft asks the girls to coexist with the zombies until the end of the semester, they realize that this is the perfect opportunity to live out their high school dreams. All they have to do is stay alive....

(Summary from goodreads.)

September Zombies is having daily blog posts about all things zombie. Books, comics, movies, giveaways, all that good stuff. If that seems like your kind of thing, go check it out!!

And, to tide you over, here are some T-shirts I found. Because zombies just want hugs.

And this would totally be against the rules mentioned above.

A compassionate zombie!

Last but not least... well, it's worth knowing.

Okay, that's it for me.
Peace and cookies,
