My Rotten Life by David Lubar
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Nathan thinks he has a rotten life...but things get much worse after he gets some experimental liquid called “Hurt-Be-Gone accidentally spilled on him! After that, parts of his body start losing feeling, he stops digesting food, and he doesn’t need to go to the bathroom!
His friends Mookie and Abigail help him get the ingredients for the mixture that will stop him from becoming a total zombie—ingredients that include a scale from a rare breed of fish and a strange mushroom. The problem is, he must have at least a little bit of feeling somewhere on his body for the mixture to work. The more time that passes, the more he losses feeling everywhere! Will the mixture be ready in time for him to use before he become a walking dead boy?
This is a funny story with very likable characters. Nathan’s friend Mookie was probably my favorite with his laid-back attitude. Even Nathan, who is very unhappy about becoming a walking dead boy, deals with his zombie-ness as best as he can. It appears as though a sequel is on its way. Recommend this book to those who enjoy the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series (Kinney) and the Captain Underpants books (Pilkey).
