Bad Hair Day - Review

Bad Hair Day (Kate Grable #2) by Carrie Harris
Book Blurb
Senior year is positively hair-raising.

Kate Grable is geeked out to shadow the county medical examiner as part of her school’s pre-med program. Except when he’s arrested for murder, she’s left with the bodies. And when Kate’s brother Jonah stumbles upon a dead gamer girl, she realizes that the zombie epidemic she cured last fall was only the beginning of the weirdness taking over her town. Someone’s murdering kids—something really hairy. And strong. Possibly with claws.

Is it werewolf awesomeness like Jonah and his dorktastic friends think? Kate’s supposed to be a butt-kicking zombie killing genius...but if she can’t figure out who’s behind the freakish attacks, the victims—or what’s left of them—are going to keep piling up.

It’s scary. It’s twisted. It’s sick. It’s high school.
My Review
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley for an honest review. Bad Hair Day picks right up were Bad Taste in Boys finishes. Kate is now famous after saving everyone from a zombie outbreak. Being the book nerd she is she is super excited to get an internship with the county medical examiner. Things quickly go strange when the medical examiner is arrested for murder. Her brother stumbles across a dead body and Kate realizes there may be a new type of outbreak in the town. A hairy one with claws. On top of that she has to deal with some girl trying to steal her boyfriend at every turn.

Kate is ever book nerds dream girl lead. Why because she is one her self. She is smart and doesn't care to show it. Even if she is famous now she doesn't let that go to her head. Very down to earth and keeps focused on what she is after. Someone trying to steal her boyfriend she is upset about it but doesn't let it slow her down from her mission. Her brother Jonah I love! He is a game nerd but always tries to stay in the thick of things with Kate and whatever is going on. Aaron is Kate's boyfriend and a jock. He is has some smarts to go a long with his good looks as you see in this book. He is still clueless sometimes but I think in a way it makes him sweeter. Elle is a backstabbing boyfriend stealer that you can see right away. I love to hate this girl. You know rich and pretty so she thinks she can have what ever she wants.

This book is just as delightful as the first one. Centering around werewolves instead of zombies this time around. I love how they come to be in this book and how Kate works out who is the bad guy. This is a book that is what says a YA book. It is true to what it says and doesn't push lines. Were if you have a preteen and want to watch what they read this book and series would be a good pick. It has a paranormal theme with a great character you really can enjoy. The action is always going as you try to figure out along with Kate what is going on. A fantastic quick read.
