"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
