Booklist Review of DIE FOR ME (HURRAY!!)

Booklist Issue: March 1, 2011

Die for Me. Plum, Amy (Author)

May 2011. 352 p. HarperTeen, hardcover, $16.99. (9780062004017).

Move over, Bella and Edward. Zombies replace vampires in this well-crafted paranormal romance. After the tragic death of their parents, Kate and her older sister, Georgia, move to Paris. Georgia fits into the party scene immediately, but Kate continues to grieve and brood until she meets the dashingly handsome Vincent. Although their attraction is immediate and intense, Kate is uneasy, even wary. Through a narrative that alternates between romance and violence, Kate and the reader are introduced not only to contemporary Paris but to a war-torn netherworld populated by zombies who save people from death and other beings who plot to kill them. In her debut novel, Plum deftly navigates the real world and the fantastical. Her characters are authentic, and their romances are believable. Plum introduces a world and a story that are sure to intrigue teen readers and will easily attract fans of the Twilight series.
