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)

    "Fun!!!"

    I have been holding off on listening to this book, I was afraid that I would not like it another zombie love story. Boy was I wrong. This was a great summer read, it was funny, feel good and the love story aspect did not really factor in to the book until the end. Highly recommend.

    "Not Really My Cup of Tea"

    I like zombies, I like supernatural, I like all kind of books.. But having a world where zombies are regular secret community where they need Brains to survive was too weird.

    Listening to the narrator talking about body parts rotting and brain mattar and so on was mostly annoying... So I couldn't wait for the book to finish, really didn't enjoy this one.

    I'm a big fan of Whispersync! My favorite genre is fantasy, YA and adult, but I'll occasionally listen to/read NA romance or space opera.

    "Very Enjoyable"

    Great unique twist on zombies and it's definitely an unique perspective on diet. If you try to describe what these books and characters are like, it sounds so weird, but when you read/hear it, it becomes totally rational!
    It works in part to the really good writing and also the excellent work by the narrator, Allison McLemore.
    Definitely on to the next book.

    I like realistic books that stretch the truth and the laws of physics...and also emotionally resonant narration that doesn't suck.

    "This is the Sookie Stackhouse series with zombies"
    Any additional comments?

    This was entertaining. And I loved the Sookie books. But, I don't think I loved them enough to appreciate another series that is so much like them. It's like the author replaced vampires with zombies and gave the condition a medical cause instead of bringing in a bunch of supernatural stuff. The mystery part is a little boring and the main character catches on to what's going on a little too slowly. It's your typical supernatural investigator mystery with a first person, female point of view, though the writing is nice and balanced for the most part. The narrator makes some characters sound like they have a serious learning disability too. All in all, if you really miss Sookie then you may want to give it a read. I'd recommend it for light reading but I don't think I'll be getting into the series.

    Life long fan of the mystery story. I like books where something actually happens, so history and biography are favorites of mine also. I also think that even good books are improved tremendously when an actor performs the narration.

    "More of a Mystery than Zombie Horror"

    Allison McLemore's narration was so charming that I couldn't resist using a credit and I was so pleasently surprised. Yes, there are zombies in the book, but mostly they're pretty nice folks. This is really more of a "cosy" mystery -- who's doing what to whom in small town Louisiana.

    Don't know whether readers looking for zombie horror will like this, but those who want a southern style mystery will be delighted.

    I've always loved books. Even before I could read I've loved them. Fact or Fiction, I love books. I'd sooner read a book than see a movie.

    "Best Darn Zombie Chick Book"
    What made the experience of listening to My Life as a White Trash Zombie the most enjoyable?

    Having never read a story about a zombie before, I didn't know what to expect. I have read books like the World War Z, but this wasn't a typical apocalyptic zombie eating brains story. This was about a cool redneck chick, who just happens to be dead and has to eat brains to keep alive and falling apart. Her life began after she died. I found her funny and smart. Plus her story made you feel uplifted at the end. It's okay to be this type of zombie, just as long as you have a pipe line of brains you didn't have to kill to get. I've enjoyed zombie movies my whole life. I love 48 days, Night of the Living Dead and Shaun of the Dead. If I awoke and found myself craving brains, I would think I was crazy too, just as Angel did in the book. She didn't know she had been turned or that zombies were real. I think this made buying into a living dead person who was aware of themselves.


    What did you like best about this story?

    In the beginning she didn't know she was a zombie. This was a cool way to develop her story, plus it made you like her and than to love her. You were rooting for the zombie to win. What a twist of a tale.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked how she settled things with her father and started a new beginning. This felt real and gave everything a sense of closer.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "Nothing better than a brain smoothie to give you a brain freeze" or "Angel's life starts after her death."


    Any additional comments?

    This would make a good zombie movie along the same lines as Shaun of the Dead.

    "This was a real surprise! Wonderful!"

    Highly creative series - what a wonderful surprise. I was impressed by all the high reviews on Amazon and figured I'd have to give it a try and now I am on number three. They really need to do more of these to audible. Excellent narration by Allison McLemore.

    "Entertaining"

    What an unusual, and entertaining, book! The addiction stuff rang true; the characters act like human beings, and the story stays true to the characters as presented--no plot driven people here. Different. The cover makes it look pretty grim, but it isn't overly graphic or nasty.

    And the narrator is PERFECT. The accent sounded spot on, and she made the characters sound true to themselves. Pacing is good, and no weird quirks that narrators sometimes have.

    Altogether, absolutely worth the time and money. And for me, it wouldn't have been nearly as entertaining in print form. Brava to author and narrator, on this one.

    "WOW!!!"

    I can't say exactly what my expectations were when I started this book, but before I was even half way through this first one, I was scrambling to download the other 2! All I can say is fun, fun fun! This book was fast paced, funny and a GREAT surprise. I listened to all 3 books in two days. This series is one of my purchases that I know I will listen to several times over. I'm just sorry I didn't listen sooner, but SO glad I finally did :)
