This story about a middle-grader with a passion for making movies is accessible to people of any age or any interest, and is an engaging, fun read.

Life has been nothing but Hollywood glitz and glamor for 12-year-old Kate Walden since she directed and debuted her breakout film NIGHT OF THE ZOMBIE CHICKENS at the Roxy Theater last semester.

In this sequel to Kate Walden Directs: Night of the Zombie Chickens, Kate is riding high on the success of her first movie. She is getting ready to start on another one when she learns that the new boy in seventh grade has just moved from New York and also likes to make movies. Suddenly everyone wants to be in his movie. It doesn't help that the Paul and Blake, the resident bullies, are actively discouraging people from working with Kate. How can she compete with Tristan's cool factor while she ...more

I love Kate Walden's voice. She's often clueless, but with flashes of genius. She's almost totally self-obsessed, but she also cares deeply about her friends. She actually reminds me of me at that age. I'm only giving 4 stars because of the boyfriend thing. I think it's all very tastefully done, but Kate seems too immature to be trying to matchmake her friends. Also, when she changes her plans for the cute boy right at the end, it feels a bit weak, which is a shame, because she manages to stay i ...more

This was so well done. I was worried I wouldn't like this one after LOVING the first one, but I enjoyed every minute of it. I only hope there are more (actually, I'd most like to see a book about the friendship between Paul and Blake: how long had Blake been just going along with the bullying? were they ever really friends? did either of them regret having the fight, and did they ever reconcile?).

Kate thought her second movie-making attempt would be easy. Then she met the new student from NYC. Tristan seems to know a lot more about the movie industry than she does. And everyone wants to be in his movie instead of hers. Oh the drama!
