"Bad Hair Day (Kate Grable #2)" by Carrie Harris

240 pages

Kate Grable, the future doctor/genius who saved the world from a steroid-based zombie virus in "Bad Taste In Boys" is back. Things are going well for her: she's got a sweet and hot boyfriend, and she's about to start shadowing the county medical examiner as part of her school's pre-med program. But when Kate's brother, Jonah, discovers a mutilated corpse at a local gaming convention, it appears that something has gone wrong again. Particularly because the body seems to have been killed by something inhuman. Something really hairy, really strong, and with really huge claws. As the bodies keep coming, it seems that Kate's got to figure out how to take her mind of zombies and figure out how to defeat werewolves.

Silly, silly fun and I love it! Kate is great--in some ways, she's regular high school girl, worrying about her boyfriend and arguing with her brother, but she also has her mind on bigger things. It's refreshing to read about a girl who's got brains and ambitions but also has normal teenage fun. The plot is pretty straightforward and predictable, but it's great for a quick read.
