'My name is Adam Meltzer and the last thing I remember was being stung by a bee while swinging at a robot-shaped pinata on my twelfth birthday. I was dead before the candy hit the ground.' Memoirs of a Neurotic Zombie is narrated by the hilarious Adam Meltzer - pre-teen, worrywart, and now zombie. Adam's family gets the fright of their lives when he turns up at their door...three months after his funeral. Soon Adam's back at school trying to fit in and not draw extra attention to himself, but when he sees his neighbour Ernesto transform into a chupacubra, and the beautiful Corina (Adam's number one mega-crush) turns out to be a (vegan) vampire, undead life is never going to be the same again. A hilarious adventure caper - if Ferris Bueller met Shaun of the Dead - all about friendship and being yourself...even if you're undead.
Memoirs of a Neurotic Zombie, by Jeff Norton: meet the coolest neurotic zombie in town, Adam Meltzer. Perfect for ages 9+ who aren't afraid of the fundead.
