Undead Redhead by Jen Frankle

These days, I don't often have a chance to read books I'm not paid to edit, but I met Jen Frankle at Limestone GenreCon this summer, and instantly enjoyed our conversation and hearing her on panels, so pulled Undead Redhead out of my 'to be read pile' and actually spent some time reading just for fun.

The novel is a quirky, funny, and touching satire of modern life as seen through the eyes of newly undead vegan redhead. Some very funny bits, some great writing (nice depiction of heroine's initial denial!) but mostly a light touch takes us through Toronto, social media, and the importance of identity... A nicely Canadian take on the zombie motif.
