The story takes place in a small town. Hailey is a Sophomore in High School. Not only is she from the wrong side of town, but she is considered the lowest of the low. She has no friends and is quite shy. She lives with her Grandmother and a 4 year old foster child named Chub.

Hailey is the caretaker of the family. She cooks and cleans, does her homework, cares for Chub and Rascal, the family dog. Her dream is to get out of town and take Chub with her.

But, then something strange happens...... A girl in gym class is injured and Hailey feels an almost uncontrollable need to place her hands on the girl. When she finally does, the girl wakes up and appears to be fine. Is she grateful? No way! She believes that Hailey has cursed her.

Not long after Hailey's aunt comes to visit. Of course this is quite a surprise to Hailey, since she didn't know she even had an Aunt.

From this point on the action really starts. And.....there are zombies! YEAH!!!! ZOMBIES!!!!

Great book! There HAS to be a sequel. There just HAS TO!!! Yes, I will be reading it. I will also be looking for more of this author's books.
