With seventh grade behind him, Jed jumps at the opportunity to spend the summer in Mexico with his dad. But there's just one catch: his best friend, Luke and his trusty pet, Tread get to tag along. In Mexico, fitting in might be easier than Jed imagined, with holidays like Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) a rising 8th grade zombie boy and his zombie dog won't draw that much attention. But then Tread unwittingly sets off Mexico's Chupacabra Defense Network and Jed accidentally collides with a bus. So much for blending in! The unusual pair catches the eye of a professional wrestler, who challenges Jed to a fight. Their antics manage to capture the attention of a doctor whose knowledge of the undead causes Jed to question his very existence. Is this the answer Jed's been hoping for since his parents sat him down for the "you're a zombie" talk? Jed may have finally found a way to be normal, but at what cost? This humorous and heartwarming story is about surviving middle school, fitting in, and embracing one's differences —even if you're a zombie.
