Memoirs of a Neurotic Zombie
Publisher: Faber & Faber
On his twelfth birthday, Adam Meltzer is killed by a bee sting. But somehow he's come back from the dead, much to his shocked family's surprise: now he's a zombie. Hygiene-obsessed Adam immediately starts worrying about the dirt and germs his decomposing corpse is harbouring and about killer bees….
He tries to resume life at school, feeling less alone to discover his neighbour, Ernesto is really a chupacubra and Corina (whom he adores from afar) is a vampire (vegan). Can this strange trio help Adam discover the truth about the fatal bee - and prevent further victims of killer zombees?
A healthy dose of the paranormal, mad scientists, and Adam's distinctive voice, as he conceals his zombie nature, combine to provide humour in this diary-novel.
