First sentence(s):
"You're one of those genius types," said Coach, nudging me with a beefy elbow. "Make yourself useful for once. Say something inspirational."

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 steroids 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.


My two-bits:

Some gross and icky scenes with these zombie creations. But a light zombie read.

The zombies are portrayed in a pre-zombie phase which create some funny scenes.

The main character, Kate, is diverse character (with epilepsy) who turns out to be a kick-ass heroine in this story.
