Synopsis:

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.

My rating: ★★★★★

Mia is super stoked that she is going to prom with the popular and handsome Rob... until equally popular and self-proclaimed future prom queen Samantha sets her heart on stealing Rob for her self. Mia really likes this guy and will do anything to keep Rob's attention... Even do a love spell on him. Except said love spell doesn't do what its title claims, and instead them the whole senior class into zombies! How you get zombies from a love spell, I have no idea. But it's more ridiculous than it sounds, lol.

With the help of a new classmate, Chase, Mia sets out to correct the spell before her classmates fatten her up and eat her for lunch.

Okay, I seriously loved this book! When I first heard about it, it just sounds so silly and like such a fun and light read that I just HAD to have it! And I can happily say that it did not disappoint! While I occasionally enjoy the deep and emotional book that moves me and makes me cry, lately I've been preferring the light books that are funny and just make me laugh. Zombie Queen was exactly that and more! I found myself laughing out loud more often than not and I absolutely love that in any book! The situation Mia found herself in was just very amusing... I mean, how often do you hear of a love spell turning people into zombies? Seriously! Can you say epic fail? Lol.

Another component of the book that I loved and made me laugh was Mia's BFF Candice. I've never read a book before where a character was a hypochondriac, but I am telling you, Candice was HILARIOUS! This week she thought she had leprosy O.o Ever since starting nursing school I diagnose myself all the time... maybe I'm a hypochondriac, too! ;) Anyway, I loved Candice and all her quirkiness!

That book was very well written and I thoroughly enjoyed the voice Amanda Ashby gave it. I highly recommend this one!
