"Scary, freaky, and original. Get this book!" --Nancy Holder

Lifeless. Slow-moving. Brain-dead.
Welcome To Zomburbia.

My name is Courtney Hart, and I'm here to tell you about things that suck. Being born in a podunk town like Salem, Oregon, for one. Living in a world infested with zombies? That, too. And the meat heads I go to school with? I think I'd actually take the undead over them most days. But I have a plan to get out of here and move to New York. I just have to keep selling Vitamin Z along with your fries at The Bully Burger. The secret ingredient? Zombie brains.

I've noticed things are getting even worse lately, if that's even possible. The zombies seem to be getting smarter and faster. If I can avoid being arrested, eaten by shufflers, or catching the eye of some stupid boy, I should be able to make it through finals week still breathing. . .

"Gallardo's world-building is innovative and fascinating, sick and twisted and unexpectedly touching. You'll want to check that your zombie apocalypse closet is well stocked." --Molly Harper White

"Readers are guaranteed plenty of mayhem and romance, laughter and heartbreak." --James Patrick Kelly

Praise For…


Fans of zombie fiction will devour this book; teens who haven’t made the leap (or shuffle) to the genre will be hooked. A gory, campy read.” – School Library Journal on ZOMBURBIA

“With its complicated and believable heroine, exploration of moral dilemmas, and disturbingly mundane vision of life among the undead, this action-and-gore-soaked adventure entertains on numerous levels.” – Publishers Weekly on ZOMBURBIA

“Courtney's smart and ambitious, and she makes terrible decisions. Comics author Gallardo nails her voice—likable yet self-absorbed. This rough world lends itself to drug dealing, partying, guns-blazing action sequences and unvarnished language…the interpersonal drama strikes a comfortable balance with undead action. More brains than your average zombie novel…and more entrails as well!” – Kirkus Reviews on ZOMBURBIA
