My review for
4 out 5 stars!
Stella is upset when her parents want to across country and that means a whole new school. Stella doesn’t make friends easily and leaving her only two friends behind doesn’t sit well with her.
But when Stella walls into chemistry class everything changes.
She has to sit by a boy who stares at her non-stop. And to top it off the popular kids say he’s strange.
When Stella confronts Howard for staring at her, he tries telling her he means no harm. Howard just really likes her and says she is so the most beautiful girl he has ever seen before.
Now Stella thinks it’s some kind of joke, a prank that maybe the popular kids are behind. But as Stella gets to know Howard, she realizes he is so much more than a strange boy.
She starts to fall for Howard despite trying not to. Then finds out his family’s secret, they all drink brains from a thermos to keep them from turning into full on zombies.
Stella has to then decide will she take a chance on this boy and his secret? Or run as far away from him and his family as possible? Will other undead people come out now?
I actually enjoyed this book, although not into zombie type things. This book doesn’t make you feel like it’s a horror movie or book. It’s a great read.

“I’m not moving to a whole new school! I’ll be eaten alive!”
Stella Blunt’s world is ending. Her parents have dragged her across the country, and she has to start over in a new school. Th is is a big problem, because she doesn’t make friends easily: she’s large, she’s loud, and she doesn’t suffer fools gladly.
The only person who likes her is the cute geek in her Chemistry class. He’s a great listener, he’s smart at science, and he loves her for her mind. Then again, she’s not sure whether that’s a good thing, considering that he also drinks brains from a thermos and walks with a lurch.
To complicate matters, undead hordes have started showing up at her door.
Can Stella take on a new school, an undead romance, and handle a chainsaw?
Described as “Like Twilight, but with zombies and feminism”, Chemistry is an irreverent romp with a surprising amount of heart from debut author C.L. Lynch, who thinks that fat girls and zombies deserve love too.
