Earlier in the month we were lucky to host the lovely Christine Verstraete, with an except of her teen zombie novel, Girl Z. Now, we welcome her back to tell us a little more about it. Enjoy.

Summer of Zombie 2014 SPOTLIGHT ON: C.A. (Christine) Verstraete



What is your latest zombie release? GIRL Z: My Life as a Teenage Zombie

Quick description of it (no spoilers) Becca’s life is turned upside down the day her cousin comes home and infects her with the Z virus via an accidental scratch. Now as a part-zombie, Becca has to cope with weird quirks and things no teenage girl wants to be noticed for, while protecting her friends and family against the full Zs. She also hopes to find, something, anything, to stop this deadly transformation . . . before it is forever too late.



Something unique about it.

My main character, Becca, is not your typical 16-year-old as turning part-zombie tends to give you a lot of odd quirks and an even odder diet. And no, she doesn’t eat “that.”

But that doesn’t mean she likes zombies. She’ll do what it takes to protect herself and her family against the full Zs. This is a different kind of zombie book, readers say.
