Life’s not easy for Adam Meltzer, or rather death isn’t. You see, he’s a zombie – bad enough for anyone let alone someone who has OCD. In this his second adventure, he’s worked out a way of getting by and keeping his undeadness unnoticed, but then his parents drop a bombshell: they’re sending him off to summer camp. How will he cope in the great outdoors? And can he keep his best friend Corina, who’s a vampire, from snacking on her fellow campers? Fast-paced and zany, these are great fun, but what really sets them apart is Adam’s voice – wry, sardonic, with a pithy turn of phrase, he’s a real character. ~ Andrea Reece

But the countryside in their hometown of Croxton is just as weird and wonderful and soon they are investigating something deadly dangerous in the deep, dark woods...
