Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Paranormal, 2013

Teenage delinquent Angel Crawford lives with her redneck father in the swamps of southern Louisiana. She's a high school dropout, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and has a police record a mile long. But when she's made into a zombie after a car crash, her addictions disappear, except for her all-consuming need to stay "alive".

What the Critics Say

"Allison McLemore's delicate voice and Southern accent give Angel's first-person narration a humorous kick. McLemore excels at bringing Angel's self-deprecating and sarcastic comments to life. Her brisk pacing suits Angel's personality and draws listeners in from the first chapter, keeping them glued to their earphones as she plays up the book's 'gross factor' with drawling descriptions of gooey brains and crunchy skull cavities. She's also good at giving unique voices and mannerisms to secondary characters." (AudioFile)

    Story
    "ANGEL CRAWFORD! WHITE TRASH, EATS BRAINS, LOVE IT!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of My Life as a White Trash Zombie to be better than the print version?

    Of course the audio version is better with Allison McLemore at the helm. She does a deep Southern (modern) accent without overdoing it. All her characters have a distinct voice, their own drawl. Men, women, good guys, bad guys, rich, poor,
    This and the other GREAT books in the series, I would not read. It's all about the Author and the Narrator mix. I am a professional Artist and Fitness Guru. I cannot read a book while working on a large painting. Will not run without a great book moving like a movie through my head. "My Life as a White Trash Zombie", is fun, funny and oddly touching.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Life as a White Trash Zombie?

    Good Question! The memorable moments seemed to be when Angel would overcome some belief she had about herself. You know those, "I'm too poor to be at this party", "Can the other women tell I can't afford couture, or can they see my own sense of style".,"Wow, I actually pulled the skin off the head, sawed it open and took the brain out!"
    Having the guts to start studying for her G.E.D.


    What does Allison McLemore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Like I said above, no matter how good a book is as written by the Author, when it comes to audiobooks, it is ESSENTIAL that the Author finds a Narrator who not only understands the book, but understands the Author on a deep artistic level. Also the Narrator must be a talented actor. In an instant they must become many characters, all with different voices, attitudes, wants, needs etc. that have to come out in their voices.

    MY cheers goes out to the truly dedicated and talented Narrators who add the magick that a good audio book needs in order to gather the masses.


    If you could take any character from My Life as a White Trash Zombie out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Since this is the FIRST book in the series, it would have to be Angel Crawford herself. I would have hundreds of questions. "What really went through your mind when you realized that you had to eat brains or fall apart and decay like a corpse?" "What does feeling -TANKED UP- really feel like"? "Can you see yourself working up to getting out of that, white trash, label, getting you and your Father somewhere better?" "When I say better I also mean healthier, better friends, basically out of the gutter, no offense".


    Any additional comments?

    Both the Author and Narrator just make your root for Angel. Some people will always use her social status to bring her down. Angel gets mad and does not give up. She and her Father have a shaky relationship, but it seems to be on the up swing.
    It is hard to imagine your home drive way paved with smashed beer cans, but Angel Crawford is going to turn it all around. You just wait and see.

    "Wow"

    I in no way expected to like this book as much as I did. It hooked me from beginning to end. Very well thought out characters, a fascinating world, and a heartfelt look at being white trash.

    Story
    "My New Favorite Zombie Series."
    What made the experience of listening to My Life as a White Trash Zombie the most enjoyable?

    The plot, the writing style and the characters make the book incredibly enjoyable. It is like "iZombie" meets "My Name is Earl," only with better writing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Life as a White Trash Zombie?

    There are lots of memorable moments in this well-written book. "Zombie super powers activate," comes to mind. The snarky scenes between Angel and the nurse in the hospital. Most of the scenes with Durrell. This is just a good book.


    What does Allison McLemore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has a charming Southern accent which is vital to her character. She gives a brilliant performance. I don't think anyone else could be Angel. She nails it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The scenes between Angel and her father (especially at the end) are amazing. They are ennobling. This is what sets this book apart. It tackles difficult themes realistically and with character.


    Any additional comments?

    This book contains swearing and references to drugs and alcohol. Obviously it also contains references to dead bodies, gore and brain eating. Great book. I will be reading the rest of the series.

    "Funny and amazing!"
    What made the experience of listening to My Life as a White Trash Zombie the most enjoyable?

    I love zombies stories in general, but the narrator was the best part of this audiobook. She really gave a voice to Angel and it was perfect to hear it read this way, it was so fitting. I was able to stay hooked to the story and feel like I was truly apart of the novel.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Life as a White Trash Zombie?

    The whole book was amazing. I kept wanting to know who turned Angel into a zombie, but we don't find out until the very end. I loved the ending and was happy to not be left with a cliffhanger.


    Which character – as performed by Allison McLemore – was your favorite?

    Angel was my favorite character just based on the way Alison read it. The voice of Angel was perfect and made me laugh at the same time. I'm excited to continue the series with her!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I only listened to the book while I was driving, but I never wanted to get out of my car because I wanted to keep listening!

    Any additional comments?

    Man, can we get some zombies up in my neck of the woods. Fun story, great narration - not a bad way to start a series. Didn't take a lot of white trash brain cells to figure out the mystery, but the main characters zombie driven introspection, which leads to not only a dietary change, but a lifestyle change was a fun listen. Allison McLemore is amazing with Angel.

    "Wickedly funny and refreshing"

    I'm a true fan of Paranormal fiction. I have read a wide range and loved this series. I'm a Graduate student and honestly don't have the ability to muster the motivation to read for pleasure after spending all week reading hundreds of pages of text. I listen while I write papers and logs. I finished this book in three days and purchased the second book in the series before I had even finished this one. This book may not have as much emphasis on realism, when describing the small details that some of my favorites do, but I loved its straight forward simplicity. Fabulous listen!

    "Great start to a fun series"

    More people need to read this book (more specifically the audiobook)

    Wow that was awesome. Very full circle and complete book with a badass character that feels very real.

    Quick summary: Zombies + detective-ish feel + slight romance + getting your life back together + silly jokes

    Very excited to go on with this series.

    Definitely in the running for one of the best books I've read in 2015
