Bad Hair Day is a YA comedic horror novel, and a follow-up to Bad Taste in Boys, by Carrie Harris.
Reading Bad Taste in Boys first is not a prerequisite here, yet I’d still recommend it. You can check out my review here.
Future Doctor of America Kate Grable is thrilled to geek-pieces to be shadowing the county medical examiner as part of her school’s premed program.
But of course nothing can go smoothly in Kate’s life, right?
Nope. Curing a zombie virus wasn’t enough, apparently.
When the county medical examiner she’s following gets arrested for a gruesome murder where the victim was literally torn apart, well, she just has to investigate.
As more bodies start to pile up, Kate finds she’s searching for a murderer that is big, hairy and possibly has claws.
That’s right. She’s chasing a werewolf.
Her logical brain, however, refuses to believe that. Zombies are one thing, but werewolves?
Evidence continues to build though, as Kate also deals with flying encyclopedia’s, a costume-wearing brother, an irritated best friend, and a boyfriend who she fears she may have ignored (accidentally) a little too long.
She couldn’t just have a quiet day of regular ol’ autopsies, could she?
Bad Taste in Boys was a hilarious, fresh take on zombies with a nerdy, intelligent, awesome heroine in doctor-in-training Kate Grable. I’m elated we get to follow her again as she lands another weird medical mystery!
Mixing absurd humor, including boundless witty dialogue, with a new take on werewolves, Carrie Harris is again treating us to some good old fashioned FUN in Bad Hair Day.
Secondary characters bursting with personality, a sometimes gory plot in the most light-hearted way, and a first-person voice to salivate over, I’m in book-love with Kate Grable and hope for many, many more books featuring this character!!!
It’s a fast, entertaining read meant to be enjoyed with a smile on your face. Mission accomplished!
*Note to my lovely Bibliophile Support Group fans, I'm starting a new job today! It's an exciting, great opportunity for my family and I but it could also mean changes to the blog's schedule IF my reading time is cut shorter because of it. I ask you all to understand this and take it into consideration if my posts get scaled back. But for now, everything is full steam ahead! Thanks for reading!!!
