KIRKUS REVIEW

Ever since the post-humans (werewolves, vampires and zombies) revealed themselves to humans, high school for Alley has been a real drag. The guys are now all goth, and the girls are necrosexual, obsessed with vampires. Alley can’t bear the post-human crowd; she doesn't understand why all the girls in school find it so dreamy to have a guy who’s “crazy strong, but not strong enough to stay away from her.” Then Alley falls for the fabulous musician Doug. Doug’s a little pale, like all the goths in school, and maybe he smells a little funny, but she adores him and his killer taste in music. When Doug turns out to be a zombie, Alley has to overcome her prejudices to be with the man of her dreams. Simultaneously a scathing parody of the paranormal-romance genre and a sweetly romantic paranormal love story in its own right, Alley and Doug’s courtship will even appeal to Twilight fans—at least, to those Twilight fans with a sense of humor about the object of their affections. Hilarious. (Fantasy. 12-14)
