Ten-year-old Nathan Abercrombie is having a really bad day. First, Shawna Lanchester, the prettiest girl in his class, doesn't invite him to her party. Then he gets picked last in gym class. Things couldn't get any worse...until he gets doused with an experimental serum that turns him into a half-dead zombie!

Nathan soon discovers that being half dead isn't all bad. He doesn't need any sleep, so he can stay up all night and play games online. He doesn't feel any pain, so there's no need to worry about Rodney the bully anymore. Still, Nathan would rather be human. Will he find a cure? Or will Nathan be half-dead forever?

Fans of David Lubar's popular Weenies short story collections - which have sold more than one million copies - will love My Rotten Life, the first of a series of hilariously rotten adventures starring Nathan Abercrombie, Accidental Zombie. Download and start listening now!

    " Lizzie enjoyed this book a lot. I was just glad to get a break from Captain Underpants. From potty humor to zombie/death humor, she's definitely into gross-out books this summer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Connie | 2/10/2014

    " I typically like David Lubar's books for middle school age but this one for elementary age kids didn't do much for me. But then again I'm not a 7-9 year old boy! They'll love it for the grossness factor! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley M. | 1/30/2014

    " I thought it was kind of cute. The premise was nice, but the writing could've been better. Like another reviewer said, maybe the character should've been older. Younger kids'd definately love this one. Not sure how a teacher would integrate it into the lessons, tho. Definately good for a library media center. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 1/28/2014

    " It is meant for young readers, but I enjoyed the story -- cute with a good life lesson for young people. Got it at Comic-Con! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacob Galloway | 1/23/2014

    " Good Book, i don't really like zombies but the book was great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Derek | 1/22/2014

    " A good book , I might give it a 3.5 but it uses good detail and great description "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Krissy | 1/18/2014

    " Good kids book and not too bad for adults either. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shivering William | 1/7/2014

    " I don't think I'd be as impressed were it not for the ending. Lubar picks strange things to be uber-scientific about while being completely lax about others. Also, a lot of the jokes felt forced. But that ending . . . pretty endearing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Polly | 1/5/2014

    " Perfect for the younger gent who likes gross stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 12/9/2013

    " Great for 4th-6th grade (boys in particular). Plenty of gross humor, with a nice story of friendship slipped in. "

    " I liked this ES book from the nerd point of view. I'm afraid some of the social references are dated but I think kids will like it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 10/21/2011

    " Didn't love it, but in general I love this author. This one rang a little too old-school (in terms of cliques and stereotypes) when it didn't need to be. Still, it's appealing enough (especially cover and title) to confidently recommend to elementary school readers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/26/2011

    " Nerdy boy meets girl with mad scientist uncle, accidentally becomes a zombie. Good gross stuff, like fingers falling off... "

    " Have you ever had a really bad day? Nothing can compare to the day that Nathan Abercrombie is having. He thinks things cannot get worse until he discovers that he is turning into a zombie. A fun, quick read. "
