MY REVIEWKaren DeSonne is used to pretending to be something she’s not. All her life, she’s passed as a normal all-American teenager; with her friends, with her family, and at school. Passing cost her the love of her life. And now that Karen’s dead, she’s still passing - this time, as alive.
Meanwhile, Karen’s dead friends have been fingered in a high-profile murder, causing a new round of anti-zombie regulations that have forced nearly all of Oakvale’s undead into hiding. Karen soon learns that the “murder” was a hoax, staged by Pete Martinsburg and his bioist zealots. Obtaining enough evidence to expose the fraud and prove her friends’ innocence means doing the unthinkable: betraying her love by becoming Pete’s girlfriend. Karen’s only hope is that the enemy never realizes who she really is - because the consequences would be even worse than death.
This is the third book in the Generation Dead series. This has to be my favorite out of all three of the books, the other two weren't bad but this one was mostly from Karen's point of view, which happnes to be a little more interesting than the other characters because they were a little more predictable. I would have never guessed Karen's true love from the other two books.
Karen can pass as alive and uses it to her advantage to get information from Pete about the crimes blamed on her zombie friends. It's hard for her though because of her feelings of love for someone else. While dating Karen, Pete starts to give secrets to her that helps the truth get out, the truth that can destroy his anto zombie cause. Soon Pete realizes the truth about Karen and things start to go bad.
