Girl Z: My life as a teenage zombie
C.A. Verstraete
Sixteen-year-old Rebecca Herrera Hayes faces every teenager's biggest nightmares: bad skin, bad hair, and worse . . . turning into one of the living dead. Becca's life changes forever when her cousin Spence comes back to their small Wisconsin town carrying a deadly secret— he's becoming a zombie, a fate he shares with her through an accidental scratch. Now she must cope with weird physical changes and habits no girl wants to be noticed for. Then she meets Gabe, a good-looking part-Z like her and she fears she may be falling for him. But how can he, who shows hardly any Z symptoms, be interested in someone like her? Time is running out . . . and Becca needs his help as she and her cousin Carm search for their missing mothers and fight off hungry Zs. Most of all, she needs to find something, anything, to stop this deadly transformation before it is too late.

Once zombies start to show up, they start to take over the world. When the first show up, Becca and Carm try to stay inside but they see someone they know outside. Its Carm's older brother Spence and he is infected with the virus. They think if they pull him inside they will be able to save him but he is far past saving. Spence ends up dying, but not before Becca gets scratched and infected. Lucky for Becca, her family gets her to the hospital before she turns full zombie. Becca and Carm must then get away from their town because everybody wants to kill zombies and half-zombies.
