Publisher: Delacorte Press
Release Date: July 12, 2011

Summary (from Goodreads):
Someone’s been a very bad zombie. 

Super-smartie Kate Grable gets to play doctor, helping out her high school football team. Not only will the experience look good on her college apps, she gets to be this close to her quarterback crush, Aaron. Then something disturbing happens. Kate finds out that the coach has given the team steroids. Except . . . the vials she finds don’t exactly contain steroids. Whatever’s in them is turning hot gridiron hunks into mindless, flesh-eating . . . zombies. 

Unless she finds an antidote, no one is safe. Not Aaron, not Kate’s brother, not her best friend . . . not even Kate . . . 

It’s scary. It’s twisted. It’s sick. It’s high school.  

Bad Taste in Boys sounds like a great zombie novel! I've enjoyed Stacey Jay's Megan Berry series with her Reanimated Corpses, and been creeped out by Carrie Ryan's The Forest of Hands and Teeth books with the Unconsecrated... so I can't wait to see Harris' spin on the zombie genre.

Isn't the cover great too? It definitely stands out with those lips!
