Blogging A to Z -- T is for Teenage Zombie, of course!
Often you'll find several books and movies with similar or the same names.
As I chose the name for GIRL Z: My Life as a Teenage Zombie randomly since it seemed to fit, for fun, I thought I'd see what movies are out there with a similar name.
Teenage Zombie (1961) takes the usual crazy scientist angle, but this time it's a woman in charge who turns teens into her slaves. Wishful thinking when it comes to getting teens to clean their rooms perhaps?
From there on IMDB, the title listings degrade into few choices including an "I was a Teenage Zombie Prostitute" episode on a TV series. Two parts yet. Never mind.
Sometimes it pays to read instead.
First lines - Prologue:
A virus. A freaking virus.
I'd been sick before, you know, measles, mumps…kid stuff…but not really sick.
Never like this.
First line - Chapter 1:
Funny how the most important or memorable moments of your life are bookmarked between the ordinary.
That's how it was the day my life changed—forever.
In GIRL Z: My Life as a Teenage Zombie, 16-year-old Rebecca Herrera Hayes finds her life changed when she's infected with the Z-virus through an accidental scratch.
Now as a part-zombie, she must cope with weird bodily changes, a strange new diet (no, not that!), and prejudice as she struggles to fit in because of her new condition.
She finds strength in fighting off the full zombies while protecting her family and friends, and hopes to find something to stop this deadly transformation . . . before it is forever too late.
