Publisher's Summary

Veronica Mars meets The Craft when a teen girl investigates the suspicious deaths of three classmates and accidentally ends up bringing them back to life to form a hilariously unlikely - and unwilling - vigilante girl gang. 

Meet teenage Wiccan Mila Flores, who truly could not care less what you think about her Doc Martens, her attitude, or her weight because she knows that, no matter what, her BFF Riley is right by her side. 

So when Riley and Fairmont Academy mean girls June Phelan-Park and Dayton Nesseth die under suspicious circumstances, Mila refuses to believe everyone's explanation that her BFF was involved in a suicide pact. Instead, armed with a tube of lip gloss and an ancient grimoire, Mila does the unthinkable to uncover the truth: she brings the girls back to life. 

Unfortunately, Riley, June, and Dayton have no recollection of their murders. But they do have unfinished business to attend to. Now, with only seven days until the spell wears off and the girls return to their graves, Mila must wrangle the distracted group of undead teens and work fast to discover their murderer...before the killer strikes again.

Critic Reviews

"Witches get the spotlight and zombies are way more interesting than their Walking Dead relatives in this coming-of-age horror comedy...a breezy entry to the supernatural that also rewrites creature-feature rules in a smart way." (USA Today)

"A compelling mystery, a grimly funny fantasy, and a genuinely touching story of friendship." (Booklist

"Mila’s sardonic, darkly humorous narration drives much of this book...but Anderson also couples Mila’s sarcasm with sincere grief, making an authentic picture of an outsider girl mourning the loss of her only friend." (BCCB

Serious Daria vibes!

I loved this book so much! The morbid humor was right up my alley & it reminded me so much of Daria with corpses. Rebecca did a great job! I’ll definitely be listening to it again!

Bless-ed Be clear the way for Zombie angst

This book took some perseverance before I actually wanted to continue with the story instead of throwing it away. It was the biggest bummer in the beginning and I wasn’t exactly dreaming of butterflies and rainbows to start.

Yes there are dead people. I don’t think you can call that a spoiler because after all the title does contain the word ‘undead’. This is no Walking Dead though more like Clueless combined with the Mean Girls if you replace Claire and the Plastics with rotting corpses.

The narrator did an ok job. Not one to come up with unique voices for each character. It was a straight read. No flare.

And just to clarify it’s ‘Bless-Ed Be’ not ‘Blesd Be’.

Highly Engaging and Fun

With an excellent narrator, this book has so much personality. It was highly entertaining, a story that sucked me in, and great characters. There were really only three options for the murderer and it ended up being the one I hoped it wouldn't be--too easy and obvious, and with a pretty lame motive. But if you can forgive that, and I can, it was a really unique and entertaining adventure. The writer has a knack for YA.

This was fun.

After a string of books with heavy subject matter I was looking for something fun and this was it.

Basically equal parts Veronica Mars, The Craft, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Death Becomes Her, and Heathers. Which happen to be 5 of my favorite things.

A Fun, Witchy Story About Friendship

This book is about the outsiders, The ones who don't neatly fit in with any other groups and who often feel misunderstood or ignored by everyone else.

It's also about those super close knit bonds that form when 2 such lonely outcasts find each other & finally have someone who understands them.

Mila is Riley's first close friend. Together they practice Wicca. Mostly just simple little spells. But then June and Dayton, 2 popular yet snobby girls are found dead of an apparent suicide. Right after, Riley's body is found drown in the creek, which is also labeled a suicide. Case closed.

But not for Mila. She KNOWS Riley would never do that. None of it makes sense but no one will listen to her when she tries to tell them that it wasn't a suicide.

Desperate to have the only person who understands her back and to hopefully figure out who killed the girls, Mila performs a resurrection spell, bringing Riley, June and Dayton back from the dead, with a few complications.

This is a story about friendship, second chances and how nobody is all good or bad.

I enjoyed Mila's snarky attitude and all of the girls have their funny moments.

What I didn't like: I never got the happy reunion with Mila & Riley, who honestly never shows much emotion. She doesn't seem happy to get to see her best friend again or seen excited to have proof that magic was real. She a distant the entire time and even when they say goodbye, their isn't much emotion. It just felt weird and not how true besties would behave.

Also, the way Mila acts around Xander, her crush, feels strange. Your in mourning but you can't stop obsessing over him?

Send then theirs the mystery aspect of the story, only I guessed who the killer was just based off of the synopsis & logic.

So it's not without faults but it's still a worthwhile read (so long as your not expecting a lot in the mystery department). It was definitely a unique story and I enjoyed being in Mila's head. I do feel like this could have been a lot better, but it was an enjoyable quick read none the less.

Great story of friends and forgiveness

Really enjoyed this book. Listened to it at any chance I could get if that tells you anything! I just couldn’t stop listening!

Story itself was very well done. Loved the main character. Kept me guessing what would happen next! Also had me laughing out loud at some points.

Not your typical YA novel

Undead Girl Gang is unlike any other YA mystery you will ever read. This book follows Mila directly after the death of her best friend. She can’t bring herself to believe that she would have been lumped in to a suicide pact with two uptight girls like June and Dayton, and she is determined to find out what really happened. How you might ask, will Mila find out what really happened? Well with witchcraft of course!

Before Riley’s death, Mila and Riley were both known to perform a spell here or there. Not for anything serious, mostly for good grades without studying, or to have boys have crushes on them. So when Mila shoots for the big leagues to bring Riley back from the dead, it’s not surprising she has a bit of a hick up and ends up bringing June and Dayton back too.

Now that the girls are back, Mila has just seven days to work with them to try and jog their missing memories of what happened to them, and who murdered them! Following the girls and watching Mila grow as a person and make friends with someone other than Riley was so fun to watch. June and Dayton definitely seem like the type of stuck up preppy girls, but death changes people a lot.

I have to say, I’m usually one to guess things fairly quickly when it comes to a mystery in a YA book, but with this one I was surprised by how things went. I had suspected Riley’s ending, but June and Dayton was still kind of up in the air. I’m glad there were some twists and turns along the way to provide enough entertainment to keep me hooked.

Undead Girl Gang is honestly a must read of 2018. I’m so glad I picked this up as soon as it came out because not only is the cover gorgeous but the story is amazing. Mila will forever be one of my favorite protagonists, and you should give her a chance too!
