You Are So Undead to Me by Stacey Branscum Fedele ’00
Stacey Branscum Fedele ’00 (writing as Stacey Jay), You Are So Undead to Me (Razorbill Books, 2009)
This is the first young adult novel for Fedele. Her high school–age protagonist, Megan Berry, has trouble with clueless parents and teachers. Plus she was born a Settler, able to communicate with the Undead. All she wants is to be normal, to go to homecoming like her classmates. But something or somebody at school starts turning students into flesh-eating Zombies, and Megan must stop it before everything, especially homecoming, is ruined. (Oh, and there’s a cute guy involved, too.)
Fedele writes in Maumelle, Arkansas, where she lives with her husband, Michael; sons, Logan, born November 10, 2008, and Riley, 4; and stepdaughters, Ashton, 10, and Laura, 14.
