By C.A. Verstraete

Sixteen-year-old Rebecca Herrera Hayes faces every teenager's biggest nightmares: bad skin, bad hair, and worse . . . turning into one of the living dead.

Becca's life changes forever when her cousin Spence comes back to their small Wisconsin town carrying a deadly secret—he's becoming a zombie, a fate he shares with her through an accidental scratch.

The Z infection, however, has mutated, affecting younger persons like her, or those treated early enough, differently. Now she must cope with weird physical changes and habits no girl wants to be noticed for. Then she meets Gabe, a good-looking part-Z like her, and fears falling for him. After all, how can he, who shows hardly any Z symptoms, be interested in someone like her?

But time is running out... Becca needs his help as she and her cousin Carm search for their missing mothers and fight off hungry Zs.

Most of all, she needs to find something, anything, to stop this deadly transformation before it is forever too late...


  1. C.A., I love the twist on this tale, where you have the MC going through a dreaded transformation. It's unique in that aspect. We truly have an MC that has self-conflict issues--not the perfect girl, by any stretch of the imagination. And we have a race against time--always a page turner. I think you have a winner here and right now the zombie trope is in full swing. And with Intrigue Publishing behind you, you can't go wrong!


  2. Thank you Chris! Much appreciated and I can't wait to read yours too!

  3. I love that this excellent book has been an award winner! Keep it up C.A.! I'm steering all my zombie-loving friends to Girl Z!

  4. Congrats on that Lovey! All those awards are awesome!
