Being Half-Dead is Not Half-Bad

The life of a typical fifth-grader is full of problems: from terrible teachers to bullies, existence at this point is no playground, and this is especially the case for Nathan Abercrombie, the second skinniest member of his class. But when the uncle of Nathan’s friend invents a serum to get rid of unwanted feelings, Nathan is doused with the concoction and transforms into a half-dead zombie. Of course, initially Nathan is not at all disappointed by the predicament, since now he no longer feels pain or needs sleep. A life without fear of bullies or a need for sleep does not seem all bad, after all. But what if Nathan wanted to become human again? Is there even a way to return to his old life from this half-dead state? Find out in My Rotten Life: Nathan Abercrombie, Accidental Zombie, the first book in an all-new series by award-winning author David Lubar.
Lubar is known for his humorous children’s books and has been praised for his past efforts in the field. His debut novel, Hidden Talents, was an ALA Best Book for Young Adults.
This book is excellent for young adult readers who still remember the grossness and complexity of life in late elementary school or junior high.
