Book Review- Zombie Queen of Newbury High

I just finished reading Zombie Queen of Newbury High  by Amanda Ashby--all in one sitting!

From Goodreads:

Quiet, unpopular,non-cheerleading Mia is blissfully happy. She is dating super hot football god Rob, and he actually likes her and asked her to prom! Enter Samantha--cheerleading goddess and miss popularity--who starts making a move for Rob. With prom in a few days, Mia needs to act fast. So she turns to her best friend, Candice, and decides to do a love spell on Rob. Unfortunately, she ends up inflicting a zombie virus onto her whole class, making herself their leader! At first she is flattered that everyone is treating her like a queen. But then zombie hunter hottie Chase explains they are actually fattening her up, because in a few days, Mia will be the first course in their new diet. She's sure she and Chase can figure something out, but she suggests that no one wear white to prom, because things could get very messy.

This was a cute YA book.  I think it would work well for the younger YA crowd who is into paranormal stories.  There wasn't a lot of depth in the book, but it was a nice change from the vampire and werewolf books that I have been reading lately.  There really isn't much for me to say about the book.  I read it all in one sitting--it was easy to breeze through.  The characters were cute and the plot was fun and that's all!

I gave the book a rating of 3.5/5.
