Someone's been a very bad zombie. 
Kate Grable is horrified to find out that the football coach has given the team steroids. Worse yet, the steroids are having an unexpected effect, turning hot gridiron hunks into mindless flesh-eating zombies. No one is safe--not her cute crush Aaron, not her dorky brother, Jonah . . . not even Kate! 
She's got to find an antidote--before her entire high school ends up eating each other. So Kate, her best girlfriend, Rocky, and Aaron stage a frantic battle to save their town. . . and stay hormonally human.

My Thoughts: 
1st thing that drew me to this book: The cover! 2nd thing: Zombies! Come on, how could you go wrong? Carrie Harris's debut novel was a win for me. 
Kate Grable is an Assistant Trainer to her school's Football team. A normal girl no. Kate is a major science lover. Who aims her goals to be a doctor. 
While in the Coach's office she notices -unmarked- vials. Which the Coach confirms to Kate that these are B12 injections. But, why are they unmarked?
Some of the football team members start throwing up. Black, gunky, poop smelling, black crap puke. *gag*!
Strange things start happening. Something about this injection that the Coach has given the player is having some major effects. Like the craving for brains! *Braaaaaaaaains* So, Kate is now on a mission to figure out what the injection is. Where it came from. And is there a cure? Oh yeah. Kate my dear, turns into a zombie fighting, syringe poking bad ass indeed!
I laughed out loud at this book. Carrie Harris really made me fall in love with all the characters, and want so much more from them in the end. I loved the relationship that Kate & Aaron came to have. *sigh* Super sweet during in the attacking football zombies!! I am so very glad that this is a series! I could write so much more, but I REALLY don't want to give it all away! Just know that this book is a winner. It is a fast read too. From page 1 you will get pulled into Kate's life, & by the last page you will want MORE... *Braaaaaaaaaaains* ok, not really brains, but more of Kate's story! More of her adventures!

Quotes I loved:
"I stumbled into a clearing. In the springtime, it was probably the kind of place you’d like to hang out with sparkly vampires. But it was slightly less attractive in the rain." 

"And then I was running through the yard hand and hand with Aaron. It was very romantic except for the part where I yelled, "Rocky, get the first-aid kit out of my car! And make sure you don't get any puke on it!"

Thats all you get! I do have a Teaser Tuesday up if you want ONE more! Trust me there was so many more.. but again GO BUY THE BOOK AND READ IT... now... get up... go :)
