My Rotten Life - David Lubar
Nathan Abercrombie is the second skinniest kid at school. He spends most of his time with the second tallest kid, the second fattest kid, and the second fastest kid. He doesn’t have a lot of friends and he’s used to being picked last for sports in PE, but for the most part, it doesn’t bother him. Until, the girl he’s been crushing on for a long time embarrasses him in front of the entire cafeteria. He is desperate to stop feeling the pain in his heart.

Things only get worse for him when Abigail, a girl from school, takes him to see her scientist uncle for an experimental cure for feelings and gets doused with serum. Soon he realizes he doesn’t feel quite right. He doesn’t get sleepy, he can’t digest food, he doesn’t blink, and he doesn’t breathe. His best friend, Mookie, finally decides the only answer that makes sense is that Nathan is becoming a zombie.

After the initial shock wears off, Nathan decides living life half dead isn’t all that bad, but does he want to stay like this forever? After he has to glue his thumb back on, he decides he needs to do whatever it takes to find a cure. Together the three of them, Abigail, Mookie, and Nathan, attempt to stop him from turning into a complete and total zombie.

MY ROTTEN LIFE is a quick and humorous story about the importance and meaning of true friendship. MY ROTTEN LIFE is the first in the Nathan Abercrombie, Accidental Zombie series. The second book, DEAD GUY SPY is set to be released January 2010.
