Generation Dead by Daniel Waters

Phoebe and her friends held their breath as the dead girl in the plaid skirt walked past their table in the lunchroom. Her motion kicked up a cool trailing breeze that seemed to settle on the skin and catch in their hair. As they watched her go by, Phoebe could almost tell what everyone was thinking. Everyone, that is, except for the dead girl. (1)

Fans of Stephenie Meyer will devour Generation Dead by Daniel Waters. No one knows why teenagers across America (and only America) are suddenly rising from the dead. But these zombies, or the politically correct term "differently biotic", are not as welcome at Oakvale High as they would like to be. When undead Tommy Williams tries out for the football team and starts hanging out with goth (but very alive) girl Phoebe Kendall, sparks fly amongst the public and their classmates. Phoebe's long time friend and next door neighbor Adam maintains he's just worried about her safety, but with danger lurking in the shadows, he's forced to confront feelings that might be more than just friendship.
