Overview

Q: HOW MANY ZOMBIES DOES IT TAKE TO RUIN A SOCIAL LIFE?
A: NOT MANY.


Megan Berry is a Zombie Settler by birth, which means she’s destined to play part-time shrink to a bunch of semi-dead people with killer issues. All Megan really wants is to go to homecoming, but with her powers out of control and everyone from the Mean Girl Next Door to her mom to the Cutest Boy in the World on her case, it’s kinda hard to score a date.

(Let’s just say Megan’s love life could use some major resuscitation.)

She’s convinced her sophomore year can’t get any worse – until someone starts using black magic to turn average, angsty Undead into scary, hardcore flesh-eating Zombies. Now she’ll have to rise to the challenge of kicking Undead butt (while fighting a serious crush on Ethan, who truly may be THE cutest boy in the world)

Her life – and more importantly, the fate of the homecoming dance – depends on it.

Alert: YOU ARE SO UNDEAD TO ME was previously published in 2009 as a full-length title. This heavily revised second edition is told in SERIAL format with CLIFFHANGER endings.

I am 35 yo mother of 5. I read smut, the dirtier the better.i don't read paranormal, no way no how. BUT for some reason, Stacy Jay's young adult paranormal books give me great entertainment. This would be the third I've read and I'm a huge fan. Megan Berry is a disaster. Seems every step she makes in this story another disaster happens. I found it really cute how she stays true to a 15 yo personality even though she has these powers. She is still boy crazy and forgetful. Wants to go on dates instead of studying chants. Loved this, looking forward to part two!

About~ Q: How many zombies does it take to ruin a social life?A: Not many. Megan Berry is a zombie settler by birth, which means she¿s part-time shrink to a whole bunch of semi-dead people with killer issues. All Megan really wants is to go to homecoming, but when you¿re trailed by a bunch of slobbering corpus whenever you leave the house, it¿s kind of hard to score a date. Let¿s just say Megan¿s love life could use some major resuscitation. Megan¿s convinced her life can¿t get any worse-until someone in school starts using black magic to turn average, angsty Undead into scary, hardcore flesh-eating Zombies. Now it¿s up to Megan to stop the zombie apocalypse. Her life-and more importantly, the homecoming dance-depends on it.My Review~ Wow¿..I love this book. The author made me feel like I was the main character. Stacey Jay gets into the mind of a true teen (and I, being a teen, should know that vary well). The plot of the story was vary interesting. This book was so fun to read. I felt like I was not reading at all. I loved the ending too. And the chemistry between Megan and Ethan is simply breathtaking. If you don¿t put this book on top of your reading pile, you will regret every second of it.Plot: 4/5Character: 5/5Ending: 5/5Cover Art: 4/5Pages in Novel: 263Other Books in the Series: Undead Much?

Megan Berry is just an average, normal teenager, except for the fact that she is a zombie settler. Normal zombies are not the Night of the Living Dead, flesh eating variety. They are merely dead kids with unresolved issues who then go to settlers to get those issues of their chest and to be laid to rest. Megan just wants to be a normal teenager who goes on dates not interrupted by the undead and join the pom squad at school. However, someone else has other plans for her. Zombies of the flesh eating variety are only raised by black magic and are called reanimated corpses. When these creatures start attacking people around Megan, she has to find out who is doing and stop them before someone dies. Is it Monica, the vindictive popular girl who has it in for Megan? Or someone else entirely? And will Megan's social life stay intact through it all?Stacey Jay has created a fresh, new take on zombies that I have never seen before. It's such an over-flooded genre right now, so this is like a breath of fresh air for me. The secret society of settlers was intriguing and also ominous at times. The story was a great mix of suspense, horror, romance, action, and mystery punctuated with moments of humor. The book was similar to Buffy the Vampire Slayer in that there is a girl who has a supernatural calling and tries to balance that job and her normal life. However, the narrative still held its own as a unique story by the strength and individuality of Megan.I related to Megan, the narrator and main character. She was a teenager with crushes on boys and freakouts about what people at school will think about her. It's expected, but it didn't overpower the novel (which would have been annoying). There were no temper tantrums or super dramatic teen angst. She was very sensible and intelligent. She had depth and a traumatic past involving reanimated corpses. She also knew when to let go of the superficial in order to save people when the situation became really dangerous. She had depth and a traumatic past involving reanimated corpses. I was also enamored and intrigued with the ever changing relationship between Megan and Ethan. I could completely understand her confusion with his behavior and his feelings for her. I was completely emotionally invested in these characters.You Are So Undead to Me was a great read. I had a lot of fun trying to figure out the mystery before Megan, but ended up being totally blindsided. Stacey Jay's writing flowed well and really sucked me in. If you like supernatural fiction, this book is the book for you. I'm really looking forward to the sequel, Undead Much that comes out next month.

This is SUCH a fun and cute read!Megan Berry is a Zombie 'settler'. Basically she helps the undead settle into the afterlife. "Welcome to your after-death session. My name is Megan. May I have your name, last name first?" -Megan doing her opening spiel.Megan has been out of the zombie settling game for 5 years, when suddenly- right before her date with Mr. HOT senior Josh- a zombie shows up at her door ringing the doorbell.Here's the deal. Once the zombie tells the settler whatever it is that has them bothered enough to CRAWL back from the dead, then they are good to go and head back to the grave.WICKED interesting twist on the whole 'zombie' thing right?But zombies CAN be brought back by dark witchcraft and these particular RC's (reanimated corpses) are very very bad and very very dangerous. Someone is raising RC's... and now Megan's childhood best friend Ethan (who is insanely hot now) is back and has decided to be her "pretend" boyfriend in order to protect her from these rogue RC's.Dude, I know right? I WILL NOT tell you who is behind raising the RC's, but you won't freaking believe it! And the end was full of so many wicked awesome twists that I cannot WAIT to start Undead Much!

Megan Berry is shocked one night when a zombie appears on her doorstep. Well who wouldn't be. Except Megan is shocked because she thought her Zombie Settling days were over. Settlers help the dead who have unresolved issues, so they can rest. But there is another type of zombie, the reanimated corpses, RCs, that are dangerous and can hurt other people. Megan is right in the middle of high school stuff and really does not need dead people hanging around. But she does not have any choice and soon she realizes that RC's are being raised and they seem to be after her. Could it be that some witch out that wants to keep her away from the Homecoming Dance? Nah, that's just silly...I enjoyed this book. You have to remember that Megan is 16. She is way more concerned about what she is wearing on a date or getting on the pom squad than helping dead folks. But she does rise to the occasion although she often over-estimates her skill. I thought she was a pretty normal teenage girl. I think girls will really love Megan. I think this one might appeal to boys as well.

Are you a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer? If so, you'll enjoy YOU ARE SO UNDEAD TO ME by Stacey Jay. The similarities begin with the cover of the book.Megan Berry is a Zombie Settler. When people die, but have left something undone, they come see Megan. She is completely out of practice though because her Settling powers have been dormant for five years. When Megan was ten-years-old, she had a terrifying experience. She was attacked by zombies and left with several serious wounds. Five years later, she is still plagued by nightmares of that horrible night.Now, just when she thought she was free of her Settling duties forever, the zombies have started appearing at her door again. This alone would be bad enough, but someone is reanimating corpses and sending them after her. Megan is sure it is because of Homecoming. Someone doesn't want her going with Josh, the big man on campus, and they are resorting to Black Magic to make sure that she doesn't.Thankfully, Megan has a little help. Ethan, a friend from the past and fellow Settler, shows up to give her a little direction. He tutors her to use her powers to give peace to the zombies and send them back to their graves safely and without the civilian population seeing them. Megan enjoys her time with Ethan and begins to develop feelings for him, but there are two problems: 1) Monica, another Settler and senior at Megan's high school that seems to be putting the moves on Ethan, and 2) the fact that Ethan treats her like a younger sister instead of a romantic interest.Stacey Jay has written a fun zombie novel that will quench the thirst of any die hard Buffy fans. Like Buffy, Megan suffers from nightmares from previous experiences and doesn't want the responsibility that has been thrust upon her. Megan can't just decide not to be a Settler, like Buffy couldn't give up being a slayer. Megan finds it difficult to have a normal relationship with Josh since zombies tend to show up where ever she is, thus making it difficult to keep her "calling" a secret just like Buffy never had a successful relationship with anyone that didn't know about her slaying. All in all, YOU ARE SO UNDEAD TO ME is a great choice for anyone who enjoys stories with paranormal activity mixed with a little humor and romance.

Megan Barry is your typical highschool student / Zombie Settler, out for her first romp in this fast paced young adult novel. Plenty of mystery, high school drama, boy trouble, zombie action and run-for-your-life action scenes fill the pages of this book. Mostly young adult fluff, not covering any major high school aged issues beyone the perfect homecomming dress and who is dating who. This is a fun easy read for those looking for a fun supernatural romp that is pretty light on the gore-factor. Better for your female teen readers with a taste for the supernatural.

Megan Berry is a zombie settler, a 'job' passed down to her from her mother. It's her 'job,' when a zombie shows up on her doorstep, to find out what they left unsettled when they died and send them back to their grave to....rest in peace.Except all Megan wants to do is go to the Homecoming dance which is almost impossible when dirty, rotting zombies randomly show up in front of you--and you're not supposed to let anyone in on your little secret! Could things get any worse?Well, of course they could. Now someone's started using black magic to raise reanimated corpses that are out for blood and if Megan wants to have any hope of attending Homecoming, she's going to have to solve the mystery.Because my library's crazy and won't get Zombie Queen of Newberry High this might be the first zombie book I've read (I have others on my TBR list, be assured) and it was a lot of fun. The zombies weren't crazy scary or gross (think more that movie with the dad from Medium in the mall vs 28 Days Later) but they weren't fluffy bunnies either.The plot of the Homecoming dance being what was at stake (which at first made me agree with some of the other characters in thinking it was insane) fit perfectly with the darkness of the rotting corpses coming after the main character. Fluff meets gore or what have you.And speaking of the fluffy (which wasn't really) and the plot, things were developed nicely. As Megan tried to figure things out, so did the reader. I enjoyed that the book didn't switch between a lot of perspectives as some do so you didn't have tons of information Megan didn't-that really made reading along more enjoyable.I did read something that said this was like Joss Whedon or Buffy meets something and I didn't quite see that in the actual writing or humor (though there was some and I appreciated that). I could however see it with some of the characters and the storyline: Monica, Megan and Jess were like Cordelia, Buffy & Willow at times-though sometimes they switched around-and the whole idea of a character saving everyone from some supernatural creature but keeping it secret was similar.Ethan-and maybe the teen male characters together-were probably the letdown of the book for me. They weren't annoying or stupid but they weren't exactly anything else special either. They were okay characters but they weren't fabulous. I liked the female characters a good bit more. Hopefully in the next book in this series I will like all of the characters equally (and a lot).reviews at: book-splot.blogspot.com

For Megan Berry, being a Zombie Settler is a pain in the shoulder ¿ literally. Not only do dead zombies get grave dirt on her favorite sundress and ruin her dates with ¿hot¿ guys, she also had a run in with some reanimated zombies some years back whose bites left marks both on her skin and her psyche. And now, someone in town is messing with black magic ¿ putting her life and most importantly her chance to go to homecoming in danger.So where to start? I love the premise here and the whole twist on the zombie idea, that there is a secret society whose purpose it is to take messages from the dead who are unsettled enough about some aspect of their deaths to crawl out their graves (one pervy guy just wanted to see a girl naked before he went to his eternal slumber). Author Stacey Jay gets points for creating a pretty plausible paranormal/real world co-existence.If you asked me what genre this was, I wouldn¿t really know what to say. The inclusion of zombies makes it paranormal, but it is not scary. Megan goes on dates with ¿hot¿ guys, but it¿s not romantic. No one knows who the black magic villain is, but it¿s not mysterious (and I figured out one of the ¿baddies¿ early on even though this person¿s motive is out of left field and their m.o. highly dubious). There is a lot of kicking zombie butt, but I wouldn¿t classify it as action. And both Megan and the story are way too shallow for it to be a drama. It¿s kind of like the author tried to make it everything, but nothing really stuck.I wouldn¿t have really minded the uneven narrative if Megan had been a stronger character. She is said to possess the most impressive settler power in 70 years, but she spends most of her time rhapsodizing about how ¿hot¿ all the ¿hot¿ guys in her life are. (Granted, you¿d find a lot of that if you read my diary from my sophomore year of high school, but fortunately you never will.)Still, I liked the world creation so much that I would definitely be interested in reading the planned sequel Undead Much! I can only hope Megan will have grown out of her semi-grating boy crazy phase by then.

Fans of camp, horror, mischief, and mayhem, lookout - this new zombie thriller is here to knock your socks off. You Are So Undead to Me is an action-packed high school drama with a rather enormous twist: zombies are real. Not only are they real, but it is the responsibility of Megan Berry to keep them under wraps. As a Settler, she is like a shrink to the dead, settling any grievances fit enough to have dead bodies leaving their graves. But some cases aren't so easy - like Reanimated Corpses, the kind of zombies raised by black magic. When it becomes clear that someone is trying to sic RCs on Megan, she's desperate to prove that she has the skills it takes to solve the case herself - but not before falling in love with a fellow Settler. Part Buffy the Vampire Slayer, part Night of the Living Dead, this is one title you absolutely cannot miss.

I really enjoyed this book. The main character is sweet. The author has great insight into a fifteen year old girl's mind. There are some harsh reviews, not sure why. it's not gory or inappropriate. I'll bee moving on to book two for sure.

Super fun freebie. Reminded me of Buffy the Vampire Slayer the early seasons when it was still silly, and there was a hot guy, too! On to the next book!
