Description

Nathan Abercrombie is getting used to his rotten life as a half-dead zombie. The good thing is he doesn't feel any pain. The bad thing is his body can't heal, so he has to be really careful not to break anything. But that's hard to do when his wrestling-obsessed gym teacher, Mr. Lomux, matches him up with Rodney the bully, who's looking for any excuse to break Nathan's bones. Then one day, Nathan is approached by the secret organization B.U.M. - aka the Bureau of Useful Misadventures - which offers him a cure in exchange for his help. Nathan jumps at the chance to become the world's first zombie spy, but soon discovers that B.U.M. isn't quite what it seems. Can Nathan trust them?show more

Our customer reviews

As if becoming a zombie permanently wasn\'t bad enough, Nathan\'s problems have just gotten worse. His limbs keep falling off and having to be glued back on; his wrestling-obsessed gym teacher is determined to toughen the whole class up; and now some weirdo, secret organization is trying to make him a spy. The spy thing wouldn\'t be so bad if they weren\'t already trying to kill him if he doesn\'t join. Will Nathan Abercrombie find a way to cope with school and survive the spies? DEAD GUY SPY is a hilarious adventure in true Lubar fashion. The characters are well-developed and entertaining. The plot is unique and fun to read. Readers will have a hard time keeping a straight face while enjoying this book. Although you\'ll definitely want to read the first book in the series, MY ROTTEN LIFE, this is a great stand-alone story and will keep reluctant and avid readers wanting to read more. *Gold Star Award Winner!show more
