Book Showcase and Giveaway: Passing Strange

Available NOW wherever books are sold...

"In Passing Strange all-American teenager Karen DeSonne faces more than the usual high school drama—she happens to be dead. Her troubles only multiply as she finds herself caught up in a high-profile scandal— new anti-zombie regulations that have forced nearly all of Oakvale’s undead into hiding.

Obtaining enough evidence to expose this sinister plot means doing the unthinkable for Karen: Betraying her true love and becoming the girlfriend of the one guy she truly cannot stand—Pete Martinsburg. Karen’s only hope is that the enemy never realizes who she really is—because the consequences would be even worse than death." (Daniel Waters http://watersdan.blogspot.com/)

“An interesting look at social prejudices. The dynamic
of his books are refreshing - not only do they offer up an unusual romance
(between a teenage girl, and a teenage zombie), they also push readers to
question their views on societal norms.” – The Examiner


GirlsLife.com and Hyperion Teen are collaborating for this special video trailer contest. The top video that succeeds in portraying the conflicts and drama in Passing Strange will win an amazing prize.

"Do you ever wake up and just feel like a zombie? Uh, yea—everyone's had one of those days (or try several)! The winner of the Passing Strange Video Trailer contest will score a makeover fit for a starlet. She'll get her makeup done by a professional MAC artist and will pick up up to $200 worth of MAC product. The best part? Your video will be featured on Girlslife.com in a video poll. Now a prize like that is sure to zap a zombie back to life." (girlslife.com)
