Super-smartie Kate Grable gets to play doctor, helping out her high school football team. Not only will the experience look good on her college apps, she gets to be this close to her quarterback crush, Aaron. Then something disturbing happens. Kate finds out that the coach has given the team steroids. Except the vials she finds don’t exactly contain steroids. Whatever’s in them is turning hot gridiron hunks into mindless, flesh-eating…zombies.
Unless she finds an antidote, no one is safe. Not Aaron, not Kate’s brother, not her best friend…not even Kate…
It’s scary. It’s twisted. It’s sick. It’s high school.

“The chapters are filled with a silly, gory edge that will make readers laugh, rather than cringe.” – School Library Journal
“With this laughing, shrieking riot of a debut, Carrie Harris captured my heart…and my braaaaiins.” – Andrea Cremer, NYT bestselling author of NIGHTSHADE
“BAD TASTE IN BOYS is a nonstop romp, with more mayhem than a mall full of mocha-chugging monkeys.

Bring me my next dose of Carrie Harris NOW!” – Jeri Smith-Ready, award-winning author of SHADE

“Kate Grable is my new hero. Thanks to Harris’s darkly funny, twisted, and sexy tale of high school drama gone un-deadly wrong, I know who I’m calling during the next zombie apocalypse. Science nerds have never been so cool.” – Kiersten White, NYT bestselling author of PARANORMALCY
