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".

Audiobook Series smart and funny Zombies


Who would have thought that My Life as a White Trash Zombie would be such a fun reading experience? The cover was certainly cool and the premise looked interesting, but it surpasses all of my expectations.

I heard about this book from various blogs and decided to check it out for myself. My Life as a White Trash Zombie did not stay on my TBR shelf for too long, because thankfully audiobooks exist.

“A brain a day keeps the rotting away.” ~Angel

Angel was such a fun character. I loved her wit and blase attitude about life. She just did not give a f*** about what anybody thought about her. She is flawed to the max. A drug and alcohol addict with a lot of stints in jail makes for a character that needs redeeming right? WRONG. Angel did not need redeeming. I liked her just the way she was and she herself embraced that.

Her less than stellar boyfriend and father play a crucial role in her life. Might have had a lot to do with the path that she took as well. But even with those negativities she still comes off a sweet character who does not completely know her worth. She starts off with no purpose in life, but when she finds that she has a second chance in doing something about it, it does NOT come cheap.

This isn’t your typical campy zombie story. Brain eating is involved, but it’s such a unique take on it that I found myself enjoying this from chapter one. Angel meets various characters who help her on her new journey and the added suspense really set it off.

The narrator was awesome. I loved her Southern drawl and her male voices were well done. She brought Angel to life (so to speak 😉 ) and I can’t wait to listen to book 2.

Angel is a character that will stay with you long after you finish reading.
