Description-

  • Jessica Walsh is starting her freshman year at Nightshade High and trying to forget about the tragic events surrounding her brother's graduation. She wants to have a normal high school experience. But that's easier said than done in Nightshade. There's a new guy at school who seems to be turning the girls into lovesick zombies. And Jessica has other worries—like her crush on a cute but moody lead singer, and the mysterious tattoo that appeared on her arm one day that lets her know whenever there is trouble brewing. Jessica learns she's a Virago, a woman warrior chosen to fight evil whenever it threatens her hometown. But does a lowly freshman really have what it takes to keep Nightshade safe?

    This ebook includes a sample chapter of DEAD IS A KILLER TUNE.

    A high-school freshman learns that she's one of a group of women who fight evil beasties in her supernatural town of Nightshade, Calif. In this sixth installment of the Dead Is... series, Jessica discovers to her dismay that she's a "virago," a woman warrior destined to fight paranormal baddies. Jessica worries, too, about her very best friend in the whole world, Eva, who's been acting strangely since she discovered a new perfume from the town's brand-new business establishment. Jessica also finds herself attracted to Dominic, the hot new singer in the hot new band, who's really, really cute, while she's juggling dates with Connor, who really seems to like her. Meanwhile, Eva joins the groupies hanging around creepy Edgar and becomes ever more hostile toward Jessica, even trying to bite her. It seems that Edgar's perfume turns girls into zombies. Now Jessica has to find a cure and drive Edgar out of town. Stuffed with enough characters to sink a boat, this outing will please established fans, and new readers should be able to figure it out. Perez keeps things super simple by throwing declarative sentences onto the page, but she manages a light tone and some comedy. It all has a decidedly middle-school feel, but it can also appeal to older readers, with its breezy style and comic-book plot. Fun for the right audience. (Paranormal suspense. 10-16)

    Grades 7-9 Perez introduces a new heroine, ninth-grader Jessica Walsha Virago, or woman warrior of super senses and strengthin this latest entry in the Dead Is series. Several of Jessica's friends also possess these qualities, and, together, they use them to protect Nightshade's citizens from the vampires and zombies that terrorize the city. Readers will enjoy reacquainting themselves with such characters as waitress Flo and her boyfriend Slim, as well as the evil Circe Silvertongue. Light romance and a paranormal plot are more tongue-in-cheek than scary, making this series a good introduction to the genre for younger readers.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2012, American Library Association.)
