It started with Coco Chanel. Zombies, models things. And she herself is the Queen of Zombies. who would've guessed?

Anyway, the story started with Carly getting a text message from Jake, her crush. Later on she knew that her friend, Joyce & Jake, had been on the same team. Err, same team? Yes, the ZFT - Zombie Force Terminators. And they said that Carly is the keeper & she carried this anecdote to the zombie disease. Seemed like her great grandfather was the founder of the ZFT & she was half vamp

Really cute, really short story about Coco Chanel being Queen of the Zombies, and a girl whose spit can turn the zombies human.

Interesting concept, with ideas I've never seen before, and not as much gore as I would've thought. It was fun to read about somebody who actually runs away from zombies, instead of headlong into danger. A few eye-roll moments, but mainly towards the end when Cabot starts having fun with puns ("fashion victims", "crimes against fashion", etc.", but even then I had to gri

This audiobook is really fun and fast-paced. It's goofy but it could totally work as a film adaptation for that reason. Really enjoyed listening to it and Sarah Drew, the narrator, does a really great job and is fun to listen to. Highly recommended.

Karl Lagerfeld frowned. "I'm not falling for that old trick. No one wants to be bedazzled anymore. Except people from Wisconsin. Give me the vial."

"You just made your first mistake," said Jake. "I'm from Wisconsin."

1.5 stars

I have no business reviewing this book because I had no business reading this book. I decided to take a chance and read something that is outside of my usual realm. I know that Meg Cabot is well-respected and widely-read, but I guess that teen fiction with a zombie plot is not my thing.

The book is cute, and something about this story reminds me of the 2001 Freddie Prinze movie Head Over Heels

This is some of mass writing event I think, because the "Twitterverse" (a truly horrid place, and even more horrid word) is credited on this one. The whole thing I kept thinking about how twitter was likely solicited in the writing here is how "and then" it feels throughout. It's a zombie fighting story where our hero is working in her modeling agency when zombies attack, but instead of regular zombies it turns out to be models who are zombies. The joke here becomes about how "zombie-like" model ...more

If I could have I would have rated this a 1/2 star. Even though this was funny there is still the fact that it is about Zombies. I don't like Zombies in books or in movies. I didn't realize it was about Zombies when I started it, I thought it was about Vampires, I decided to give it a try anyway. I would have just stopped listening to it but it is such a short story that I decided to just finish it. I will make sure to read info about any future books that say undead to make sure that they are a ...more

Ever wonder why models are so beautifully thin or wonder why they have that glazed, hungry look on their eyes? Well, they may be zombies.
Fashionably Undead is an incredibly short story that is fun, even if there are holes big enough to drive a truck through. It is like a YouTube video about zombies rather than a full film that can flesh out situations rather than bouncing characters from place to place without much explanation or follow up.

Interesting concept with zombies and models. Actually, it's pretty funny. I'm not a fan of zombies but listened to this one because it was short and I like the author. It didn't disappoint and I'm glad it was short and to the point! ...more

Meg Cabot was born on February 1, 1967, during the Chinese astrological year of the Fire Horse, a notoriously unlucky sign. Fortunately she grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, where few people were aware of the stigma of being a fire horse -- at least until Meg became a teenager, when she flun
