The Lovereading4Kids comment

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

You'll laugh until you die! Adam Meltzer, the world's most neurotic teenager, who just happens to be a zombie, is back! After solving the mystery of the zombees, Adam and his friends Corina (a vegan vampire) and Ernesto (a reluctant chupacubra) head off to summer camp for a well-earned break from detective work. 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...
