Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Paranormal, 2013
Teenage delinquent Angel Crawford lives with her redneck father in the swamps of southern Louisiana. She's a high school dropout, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and has a police record a mile long. But when she's made into a zombie after a car crash, her addictions disappear, except for her all-consuming need to stay "alive".

Critic Reviews

"Allison McLemore's delicate voice and Southern accent give Angel's first-person narration a humorous kick. McLemore excels at bringing Angel's self-deprecating and sarcastic comments to life. Her brisk pacing suits Angel's personality and draws listeners in from the first chapter, keeping them glued to their earphones as she plays up the book's 'gross factor' with drawling descriptions of gooey brains and crunchy skull cavities. She's also good at giving unique voices and mannerisms to secondary characters." ( AudioFile)

GET A "LIFE"! Become a Zombie...

I enjoyed this book. The narration was good and the story was lite, while still keeping my interest throughout the entire audio performance.
My favorite character was Angel. She is a bit of an underdog. And I loved the way she pulled herself up and made the best of a bad situation.

I keep saying that I am done with ZOMBIE BOOKS, but this book had the coolest cover art, and what could one little zombie fix hurt?!!!!??

You know where I'm going with this...
YES. I have already purchased the next book in this series. And as soon as I am done writing this stupid review, I plan on listening to it. Darn it all.

Surprisingly "brainy"

After listening to this totally fun book about eating brains, I have to eat my words: I don't hate Zombies after all! This is the third pretty great Zombie book (after The Junkie Quatrain and World War Z) I've listened to and I have finally realized that this proves something I've known for many years but kind of forgot - there are NO limits on great writers and creative minds. I haven't liked the Zombies of movie fame much, but the Zombies of literature are not limited by what works in film and Diana Rowland has found an interesting take on an old tradition that is both well written (great descriptive settings, complex and interesting characters, and a nice twisty plot) and very entertaining. This book even tackles some tough real world issues like alcoholism/drug abuse, parental abuse/neglect, and teen dropouts with empathy while still being very amusing.

Diana Rowland has the vernacular of a Southern rural young woman down pat and Allison McLemore's delivery is perfect. In addition to providing exactly the right accent for this first person narrative, Allison McLemore just plain has a lovely voice. I listened to the samples of a couple other books she has narrated and apparently her Southern accent isn't native (although you'd swear it was listening to her on White Trash Zombie), but her nicely modulated tones carry in whatever accent she is using. This narrator is really easy on the ears and I will be watching for her in the future.

Audible's surely got my number - picked up White Trash Zombie on sale, but of course, I will now be buying the rest of the series at full price! White Trash Zombie has a complete plot line by itself and a very satisfying ending, but be warned you will probably crave more books as much as Angel craves brains after this one.

Becoiming a zombie helps Angel get a life

I don’t read zombie books.

Well, not unless they’re original, funny, well written, and make you fall in love with the main character, not because she’s zombie but because she’s doing her best to be a good person who just happens to need to eat brains, in which case, I’m reading “My Life As A White Trash Zombie.”

This book is pretty close to perfect (except for the cover art, which is cool but not remotely related to the character of Angel Crawford in the book) the story is fast-paced enough to keep you turning the pages (or listening in my case), the language is vivid, fun and unconventional and the “voice” of Angel Crawford is authentic and compelling. I strongly recommend the audiobook version of this novel because Allison McLemore’s narration makes good text even better. Her accent, timing and emotional range are a perfect fit for the story. She helped make Angel Crawford real for me.

This is a relatively short book but not a page is wasted. You’ll read it with a smile and perhaps the occasional tear and you’ll be glad you did and then go looking for more.

Fortunately there is more to be had. “Even White Trash Zombies Get The Blues” is in my reading queue, mentally tagged as “reward yourself with this one”.

Surprisingly good

I bought this on a whim - because there was a sale on and the title amused me.



When I first heard the narration, I thought I was going to hate it, but it turned out to be very appropriate for the story.



The premise - telling the story from the zombie's point of view - is well-executed and the author has come up with a new take and some new ideas on the old formula to make it work. Without spoilers, one or two things that I thought she had got "wrong" turned out to be perfectly in-line after all.



It's quite a short listen at only 8 hours, but I liked it enough to buy the sequel.

Terrific fun in a glorious southern accent

We Aussies can't buy the e-book of this series. Thanks publishers. The audiobook, however, more than makes up for that lack. Macklemore's accent is a joy and her performance of all the characters adds to the great fun of a most entertaining series. A strong central character, engaging ensemble, witty lines and gripping adventure. I've really enjoyed the character development over the 3 novels. Bring on the 4th in July '14.

Very entertaining! Loved the narrator too.

A little bit weird regarding zombies as Im not a fan but this was more of a who-dunnit story. I'll be listening to the series for sure!
