Bad Taste in Boys
by Carrie Harris
Release date: July 12, 2011
Description from the amazon:
Someone's been a very bad zombie.
Kate Grable is horrified to find out that the football coach has given the team steroids. Worse yet, the steriods are having an unexpected effect, turning hot gridiron hunks into mindless flesh-eating zombies.
No one is safe--not her cute crush Aaron, not her dorky brother, Jonah . . . not even Kate! She's got to find an antidote--before her entire high school ends up eating each other. So Kate, her best girlfriend, Rocky, and Aaron stage a frantic battle to save their town . . . and stay hormonally human.
I was inspired to create the image above based on the HANDS ON contest being held this month at the Class of 2k11

I don't think this counts as an entry as these hands are virtual and not mine. But thought y'all would get a chuckle out of this creation of mine.
If you have entered any of the contests please let me know as I'd love to see your creations ;-D
Just curious, which YA debut 2011 book are you excited for?

A yearly competition in Longview, Texas pits twenty-four contestants against each other to see who can keep their hand on a pickup truck for the longest amount of time. Whoever endures the longest without leaning on the truck or squatting wins the truck. Five minute breaks are issued every hour and fifteen minute breaks every six hours.
