If the cover and the title aren't enough to lure you in, (who can resist Zombie Chickens?) you only need to read the first page to get hooked on this awesome middle grade read. The characters are funny, charming, and remind me on every page of the perils of middle school.  The author weaves some awesome life lessons into the fast-paced action without  making the situations feel contrived. Can't wait for the next novel.

I am reading this book right now, and I'm going through what Kate Walden is going through right now. My two best friends that have always been my best friends went to the Dark Side and joined the popular girls. I have been feeling this way for the whole school year and I am really afraid to tell anybody my problem. If anybody has advice, please help. Anyway, I'm only on Chapter 10 and I just started this book today. This book is really hilarious at some points, others are sad and ambitious, some curious and envious. Kate's mother used to have a very high paying job and the family had alot of money. Then she went down the wrong path and decided to become an organic chicken farmer instead. Kate's mom once told Kate that before you decide to make a major change, you have to make sure that your family and friends agree with this idea. Sadly, though, Kate's mom didn't listen to her own advice. Kate also found out that her dad is hiding a huge secret--but he won't tell his family. Kate is worried that this secret might lead to a divorce with her parents. The part that I can relate to, though, Kate's best friend Alyssa is planning on joining the popular kids and doesn't want to be in the main role of Kate's movie anymore. And as Kate had quoted in the book: " I'd say the hens and I have a love-hate relationship. I love deep - fried chicken, and they hate me." Toodles.
