Not only do I really, really, really want to read a YA zombie book right now, not only has Twitter made me love Carrie Harris, not only am I probably going to have to make pink frosted cupcakes with huge sugar crystals on them when I make my bacon cupcakes later this month (trust me, that does make sense!), not only does Bad Taste in Boys have one of the bestestestest covers ever, BUT have you read the super fun synopsis?
It's like it puts together all the fantastic elements of the zombie-ness, the cover's awesomeness and the 'I-Want-to-Read-It-Now'ness and actually justifies it! Behold:
Someone's been a very bad zombie.
Kate Grable is horrified to find out that the football coach has given the team steroids. Worse yet, the steroids are having an unexpected effect, turning hot gridiron hunks into mindless flesh-eating zombies. No one is safe--not her cute crush Aaron, not her dorky brother, Jonah . . . not even Kate!
She's got to find an antidote--before her entire high school ends up eating each other. So Kate, her best girlfriend, Rocky, and Aaron stage a frantic battle to save their town . . . and stay hormonally human.

(how do they have so many amazing books coming out this summer and yet I get zero books from them? It's a travesty, a travesty I tell you! Well, not really-but right now it seems like it.)
