Review: Do you like zombies and werewolves and vampires and romance? That is what you get in the book I kissed a Zombie and I Liked It by Adam Selzer. In this story Algonquin “Ali” Rhodes doesn’t live your typical human life. She is the newspaper music critic in her high school. In her town, Cornersville, zombies and vampires go to school with her. Unlike other teenage girls Ali does not like the vampires and zombies at her school. While on an interview Ali meets Doug, a singer in a band. Ali falls for Doug and starts dating him, but what she didn’t know is that Doug isn’t the guy she thinks he is.
This book foreshadows future events at certain times. Every time this happens you are on the edge of your seat wondering what’s going to happen. You keep on reading because you want to find out what’s going to happen. Ali is different type of girl. She isn’t the type of girl that does everything everybody else does. She does and likes her own things. She doesn’t care if people think she is dumb or weird for not liking vampires and zombies. If Ali had the choice she would have all the zombies and vampires gone. There is also romance in this book. The zombies in this book are considered to be the emo type. Most of the girls fall for that. Ali is pretty much the only one that doesn’t like the emo zombies. Living creatures and dead creatures are mixed and living in the same world of high school. The teachers are afraid to tell the zombies and vampires to stop doing all the bad things that they do in school. There is only one strict teacher in the school named Mrs. Smollet. She is also a vampire. Mrs. Smollet is the only teacher that everybody listens to, both the dead and living.
I give this book 11 out of 10 stars for its romance and suspense. Do you want to know what happens with Ali and Doug? Does she keep seeing him after she find out who he really is? Read the book to find out.
