My Life as a White Trash Zombie (White Trash Zombie, #1)
Angel Crawford is a loser

Living with her alcoholic deadbeat dad in the swamps of southern Louisiana, she's a high school dropout with a pill habit and a criminal record who's been fired from more crap jobs than she can count. Now on probation for a felony, it seems that Angel will never pull herself out of the downward spiral her life has taken.

That is, until the day she wakes up in the ER after overdosing on painkillers. Angel remembers being in an horrible car crash, but she doesn't have a mark on her. To add to the weirdness, she receives an anonymous letter telling her there's a job waiting for her at the parish morgue—and that it's an offer she doesn't dare refuse.

Before she knows it she's dealing with a huge crush on a certain hunky deputy and a brand new addiction: an overpowering craving for brains. Plus, her morgue is filling up with the victims of a serial killer who decapitates his prey—just when she's hungriest!

Angel's going to have to grow up fast if she wants to keep this job and stay in one piece. Because if she doesn't, she's dead meat.

OMG! This book is... awesome. I loved it.

Angel is pretty much a loser. She lives with her alcoholic father, only works dead-end jobs, has a boyfriend that helps her dependency on drugs, and has no ambitions. Well, that's until she dies. She might not remember the night she died or the overdose that supposedly killed her, but she's not going to screw up her second chance. Especially since someone was nice enough to line up a job at the morgue for her.

All of a sudden, things are looking up. She actually enjoys the job and is even good at it. Of course, this new life comes with a side effect... she's constantly craving brains. Yep, Angel's a zombie!

This story was a great new twist on the zombie genre. Actually, it combines two of my most favourite (reading) things--UF and zombies. And it's so well done, too. Angel's a very well written character. I was totally cheering her on and wanted her to get out of the shitty slump and take control of her life. The mystery of her death and the serial killer murders was also interesting... and the outcome, awesome!

Yeah, I loved it. Guess who ordered the next two books? ;)
