Dead over Heels by Alison Kemper

Release Date: 09/29/14
Entangled Teen
269 pages

Summary from Goodreads:

The end of the world just might be their perfect beginning…

Glenview, North Carolina. Also known―at least to sixteen-year-old Ava Pegg―as the Land of Incredibly Boring Vacations. What exactly were her parents thinking when they bought a summer home here? Then the cute-but-really-annoying boy next door shows up at her place in a panic…hollering something about flesh-eating zombies attacking the town.

At first, Ava’s certain that Cole spent a little too much time with his head in the moonshine barrel. But when someone―or something―rotted and terrifying emerges from behind the woodpile, Ava realizes this is no hooch hallucination. The undead are walking in Glenview, and they are hungry. Panicked, Ava and Cole flee into the national forest. No supplies, no weapons. Just two teenagers who don’t even like each other fighting for their lives. But that’s the funny thing about the Zombpocalypse. You never know when you’ll meet your undead end. Or when you’ll fall dead over heels for a boy…

Top Ten: Hilariously Icky Zombie Gifts

~Alison Kemper

When I started writing YA zombie novels, my supportive friends sent all kinds of wild and interesting zombie-themed gifts. I thought it might be fun to explore the wide range of zombie products now available to consumers. Here are my top 10 favorite finds:

1)     Zombie bedding
Yikes. Not sure I could sleep in this.

2)     Zombie Halloween Costume for Pregnant Women
This would totally terrify small children.

3)     Zombie Onesie for Infants
Except for this kid. This kid is not terrified of anything.

4)     Zombie Teddy Bear
What’s a zombie’s favorite toy? A Dead-y Bear! *groan*

5)     Zombie Nails
Can you imagine trying to type while wearing these?

6)     Zombie Quilt
You know, this is actually kind of nice. I would use this.

7)     Zombie Santa Christmas Ornament
Rather than buying this product, it might be fun (and cheaper) to zombify some of your current Christmas ornaments. A little green paint for the skin, trickle of red for the blood…

8)     Zombie slippers
Time for a pedicure.

9)     Zombie Blood Bath Shower Gel
Death and decay-scented?

10)  Zombie yard statue
My husband got me this yard statue when I signed my book deal, and for a while, we were the weird neighbors with the zombie statue in the yard. Now we behave and only haul it out at Halloween.

I love to hear about new and fun zombie products! Leave me a comment about your favorite zombie find. 

About the Author

Alison Kemper grew up in South Florida, the only girl on a street with eleven boys. She spent most of her childhood paddling a canoe through neighborhood canals and looking for adventure. She usually found it. Sometimes the police were involved. And large dogs. And one time, a very territorial snake. Now that she’s grown up, she lives in North Carolina and writes books. The books often include girls having adventures. With boys. Cute boys. And cute dogs too. But no cute snakes. Never cute snakes.

Her debut novel, Donna of the Dead, will be published by Entangled Teen in 2014 and followed by two companion books in the series. She loves to meet new people and talk books, so send her a friend request or connect with her on Twitter and Instagram.

  1. Oooo that quilt rocks. I wonder if it is available to buy somewhere? I might buy the slippers, they could be fun to wear around the house or outside to freak out the neighbors lol.

  2. Yeah, I think out of all those gifts, the quilt would be my top pick too, Kristin. Although I have to admit, it's fun to put out the zombie yard statue--especially this time of year.

  3. My favorite is the goo-squirting eyeball gumballs you have in the zombie swag packs, Alison!
