Format: Paperback
Karen DeSonne is a zombie, but unlike many other the reanimated teenagers living in America, she still passes for human and consequently avoids many of the bans that other dead teens face including driving and go to school. After being brutally shot during a protest, she also discovers that she has the unique ability to heal herself. While she comes to terms with this and what it means for her, her friends are framed for the murder of a prominent lawyer and are forced into hiding. Karen becomes convinced that Peter Martinsberg is responsible and when she realises that he thinks she's normal and is attracted to her, she becomes his girlfriend to discover his plans. But Karen's playing a dangerous game and the consequences of Peter discovering the truth are dire not just for her but also for all of her friends.

This is the third in Waters series about teen zombies and while I hadn't read the previous 2 books, you don't need to in order to follow this.

Although Karen could easily come across as a stereotypical emo teenager, what sets her apart is the fact that unlike many other teens, she committed suicide and much of her afterlife has been spent coping with the guilt at committing that act and seeing the affect it has on her parents and sister. In particular, her mother's reaction to her (such that she can't bear Karen to touch their food) is very moving and there is a real warmth and tenderness to the conversations between Karen and her more sympathetic dad.

In contrast Peter is a disappointingly two-dimensional villain and while Waters tries to humanise him towards the end it's very much a case of too little too late.

This is the third book in the Generation Dead series and I think it is definitely by far, the best so far. It seems that the last two books have been just the lead up to this astounding and well written conclusion.

This time we are not looking through the eyes of Phoebe and Adam but instead we look through the eyes of Karen, Tak and Pete. For fans of the books so far, I welcomed this change in narrative as I have really warmed to these characters so these view points gave so much personal insight into the characters that we just did not see before. Many questions are answered or realised and we are taken mainly through the book by Karen and Pete who are both so different but equally intruiging. We learn a lot about Karen as she tries to 'pass' as a traditionally biotic person in a world where 'zombies' have not been allowed in public anymore and she plays a dangerous game in doing so and in trying to find the evidence that framed her kind (the differently biotic) for crimes they did not commit. Pete is still the same love hate character in this book, I found myself hating him but symathising with him. There are revelations involving him, leading up to the climatic ending where we see once and for all, maybe the real Pete. Tak is a welcome insight too, I finally understood him and we definitely learn a lot about him too.

I really want to tell you some of the goings on in the book but it really spoils it as it is like an undercurrent the whole way through the book. What I will tell you though, is that all through the book the fight to be alive, to be normal, when you are dead is a main highlight and it is shown mainly through the character of Karen.

Really good end to a series of books, highly recommended if you're into the whole undead thing, not Twilight though.

Passing Strange by Daniel Waters is the third instalment of the Generation Dead Series.
Karen Desonne is used to pretending to be someone and something she is not. She has always passed as a typical All American Teenager with everyone, her family, her friends and at school. Now that Karen is dead she is still Passing as alive!
Meanwhile, Karens friends have been framed in a high profile murder. The murder has caused lots more anti-zombie (the name the locals call the "living impaired) laws that restrict their movements. The new laws have forced most of the undead population into hiding. Karen quickly learns that the murder is in fact a hoax.To prove her friends innocence see Karen betraying the love of her life to become the girlfriend of Pete. Pete and his bil-list zealots are the ones that faked the murder. Karen's only hope is to fool Pete and get the information she needs to finally clear her friends.
Again I adored the cover, the book was even better than the previous two , I suppose because there is more action and pieces click together in place. There's romance, brain washing,bullying, action a plenty in this book.
