Don't be a zombie - review that book!

 
 Yes, it's the thing we all love and/or hate to get - reviews.

Why care? Well, they help other readers decide; they help with ranking on Amazon.

I'm grateful for the good ones that readers so far have given to GIRL Z: My Life as a Teenage Zombie...

Of course, I know there are lots more people who read the book, who said they liked it, and haven't gotten around to doing their reviews, so a gentle reminder! (If you're not a zombie, please do yes do review it!. haaa!)

** Here are the links to review at:  Goodreads --- Amazon.com --- Amazon UK  ---- B & N  (See? Easy! And thank you!) **

(* Download the prologue and chapter 1)

Okay.... so, what are the readers saying?  Some tid-bits:

"..I really enjoyed this story by Ms. Verstraete because it is so different from so many other zombie stories which look at a more serious form of the disease...dead people walking around trying to eat the living and the living trying to kill the walking dead. No...in this story we see a teenager living with a disease that is not fully understood and also trying to be just a teenager..." - Denise on Goodreads and Amazon (5 stars!)

"...GIRL Z is a different type of zombie apocalypse story, especially recommended for fans of the genre!" - Midwest Book Review. * Read the rest - Fantasy/SciFi Shelf, Small Press Bookwatch   (Book also included in the Cengage Learning-Gale interactive CD-ROM series “Book Review Index” )

"I found this book to be very interesting and well written. It kept my interest until the very last page...   I enjoyed how it showed what Becca was feeling and thinking. You could really tell how she was feeling about being a zombie and how it was changing her on the inside and outside." - Emily, age 16, at LitPicks - 5 stars

  " ...If you've read as many zombie books as I have (I believe I'm up to about 60 now) you may be getting that "been there, done that" feeling. I can guarantee that you will NOT have those feelings with this book. If you're looking for a fresh, fun, and fast-paced New zombie book, download, Girl Z: My Life as a Teenage Zombie! I firmly believe you will not be sorry you did so..."  - Reader Joline on Amazon
  
"GIRL Z: My Life as a Teenage Zombie brings teenaged angst to an entirely new level when 16-year-old Becca is infected with a zombie virus and becomes one of the living dead...
   "Still sentient and able to control the whole flesh-eating cravings, Becca struggles to find her place in a world where some of the dead eat the living while others try to fit into their old lives, only to be met by hostility and fear from former friends and family.
    "Written from Becca's point of view, we get a narrow and very realistic view of this chaotic new world from a self-absorbed teenager's tunnel vision. A very fun and readable introduction to a new series!"  --Dana Fredsti, author of Plague Town & Plague Nation, sword fighter, and actress in Army of Darkness.

“...You can actually look at this story as a parable about the teenage condition. An orderly life is upended by forces and urges that are difficult to control. People you trust can turn on you, and sometimes you feel like you’re going to die. Yep, that’s being a teenager.
  “...Verstraete, whose background runs from journalism to designing one-twelfth scale dollhouse rooms, has come up with a clever way of telling her story from a zombie point of view without sinking to the “Hungry…eat…BRAIINNSSS!” level.... With Girl Z, Verstraete has shuffled to the head of the zombie-lit horde...” – Terrance Mc Arthur, Kings River Life Magazine, www.kingsriverlife.com

"....The story is well written and the timing throughout the story is just right.  As a fan of anything ZOMBIE related, I can truly say that this novel is a much needed “Breath of fresh air”! - Dina B. Reed, "zombie" actress,  One Last Sunset
