Generation Dead BK 3: Pasing Strange
by Daniel Waters

Karen DeSonne always passed as a normal teenager; with her friends, with her family, and at school. Passing cost her the love of her life. And now that Karen’s dead, she’s still passing—this time, as alive . Meanwhile, Karen’s dead friends have been fingered in a high-profile murder, causing a new round of antizombie regulations that have forced them into hiding. Karen soon learns that the “murder” was a hoax, staged by Pete Martinsburg and his bioist zealots. Obtaining enough evidence to expose the fraud and prove her friends’ innocence means doing the unthinkable: becoming Pete’s girlfriend. Karen’s only hope is that the enemy never realizes who she really is—because the consequences would be worse than death.

Blerg! I hope this book doesn't spell bad news for Karen! I live in constant fear for her whenever I read this series. And I'm still upset over Frankenadam! WHY!!!! Adam was so wonderful... I guess that was the problem, we had to love someone to really feel it when they "died".

Karen is my favorite!!

I am not trying to name-drop but I was at an event where Dan was speaking and I asked him if there would be more Karen in the third book (this was before it was announced) and he said there would be but I might not like everything I read (something to that effect).....
I am hoping that doesn't mean bad news for her either but between what he said and this blurb- ek! doesnt look good for her.

Arg! I am so protective of almost everyone in the series (please don't ask about my weeklong freak out over Adam after book 1. Although Pete needs to pay in a most painful way, I kind of get annoyed by Pheobe really often, I'd not mind it if she became Differently Biotic.
