** Another new review at Litpick: "I found this book to be very interesting and well written. It kept my interest until the very last page..." - Emily, age 16, 5 stars.

** A reader just posted a great review on the Amazon US site:  In part, (and it's all good!) :"... 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 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..." Read the rest:

Help me spread the word! 
1. Please post your reviews on Amazon and Barnes & Noble as the more reviews, the more the book gets noticed.
2. Tell your friends - tweet, post on your blog, Pinterest and Facebook about the book.
3. Let any teachers you know who might like to get the book for classroom readings or lessons, or for the school library.  I'll be glad to send some discussion questions and maybe we can even do a Skype author Q&A.
4. Ask your local library to get the book and ask if your local bookstore carries it.

Every little bit helps! I do appreciate it and thank you!!!
