{Review} Zombies Don't Cry (A Living Dead Love Story) by Rusty Fischer

Zombies Don't Cry (A Living Dead Love Story)
by Rusty Fischer
Publisher:  Medallion Press
Released: May 1st 2011
Genre: Fiction- YA: paranormal, zombie romance
How I got it: Bought it

Maddy Swift is just a normal girl—a high school junior surviving class with her best friend and hoping the yummy new kid, Stamp, will ask her out. When he finally does, her whole life changes.
Sneaking out to meet Stamp at a party one rainy night, Maddy is struck by lightning. After awakening, she feels lucky to be alive. Over time, however, Maddy realizes that she’s become the thing she and everyone else fear most: the living dead.
With no heartbeat and no breath in her lungs, Maddy must learn how to survive as a zombie. Turns out there’s a lot more to it than shuffling around 24/7 growling, “Brains.” Needing an afterlife makeover is only the beginning of her problems. As Barracuda Bay High faces zombie Armageddon, Maddy must summon all of her strength to protect what matters most—just as soon as she figures out exactly what that is.

Review: I could completely relate to Maddy, at least when she was human. After that well her life kind of fell apart. Zombie's Don't Cry is a good warning for kids who sneak out, not in that they'll become zombies but that bad things could happen and then where'd you be. Maddy sneaks out to go to a party with the hunky new kid Stamp. Ok first every time I read this name I saw some dumb muscled meat head, I don't think that's what Mr Fischer was going for but that's what I envisioned. The beginning of this book was a little slow, but once Maddy became a zombie it picked up.
As a zombie Maddy has to follow a whole new set of rules and a very strict diet. She starts hanging out with a whole new cliche and her old friends aren't crazy about it. Let's just say if friends will help you move and best friends help you move the bodies then Chloe and Dane are Maddy's ZBFF's (zombie best friends forever). As the book progressed I really hoped the Maddy would give up on Stamp and hook up with Dane. Instead it just got way to complicated. Anyway I got caught up in the story, and Maddy's drama friends, zombies, and boy troubles. While I wouldn't have considered this a true love story it was some what a romance.
There are a lot of twists and action as Maddy learns the in and outs of being a zombie as well as trying to keep herself from being dead permanently.
