Our Thoughts On:

"The mayor gave me the key to the city."
Wait, wait let's go back to the beginning, rewind. As if finding the cure to zombie-ism  isn't enough, Kate Grable has a new epidemic on her hands, one that is almost too hard to believe. When scientists experiment on something new and it gets into the hands of the wrong person murder may be afoot and the only person thinking outside the box on this one may just be Kate Grable.
    Kate can take a zombie outbreak and cure it, but when her boyfriend Aaron starts to get hit on by a new girl Elle Kate may soon lose her patience with the female race and need to fight for her man. Kate has no problem standing up for herself and solving problems and with her mad skills she saves lives and defends the weak. Making a great character Kate portrays a headstrong young woman in charge of herself and her purpose.
    Bad Hair Day is a quick witted new chapter in the story of young Kate Grable,  and just when she thinks she is going to have a lull in life and focus on her Future Doctors of America program, wanting to be a surgeon,  the world has other plans for her by assigning her to the county medical examiner’s office. Over my dead body may be sooner than expected when a string of grisly murders is happening in town and the bodies coming into the morgue are more than they appear to be. Kate has to solve the murders and confront the killer making this week more than just a bad hair day.
          With a thrilling and exciting new plot surrounding the story of  Kate Grable readers will get into  loving this new outbreak and cheering the characters on through the hard times. Bad Hair Day is a great new take on the paranormal or just the plain old technologic experiment gone awry.

Blurb From The Publisher:

Kate Grable is geeked out to shadow the county medical examiner as part of her school's premed program. But after he's arrested for murder, she's left with the bodies. And when Kate's brother, Jonah, stumbles upon a dead gamer girl, Kate realizes that the zombie epidemic she cured last fall was only the beginning of the weirdness taking over her town. Someone—or something—is murdering kids. Something really hairy. And strong. Possibly with claws.Could it be werewolves, like Jonah and his dorktastic friends think? Kate's supposed to be a butt-kicking, zombie-killing genius . . . but if she can't figure out what's behind the freakish attacks, the victims—or what's left of them—are going to keep piling up.
