Saffron loved the little Minnesota town where she lived with her older brother Shane.‭ She loved the little park in which she spent her afternoons reading and boarding, with it’s Autumn Maple Blaze and the little kids laughing in the background. ‬She even loved her school and, while she wasn’t really close friends with any of the kids in her new class,‭ ‬neither was anyone really mean to her. Best of all, Shane was due a promotion at work. That meant they could move into a bigger apartment. And that... that meant she could finally get a dog! Things were going so well. Then the dead began to walk. This is a fun, uplifting story, appropriate reading level for 12-14 year olds, about one young woman learning to deal with death and loss and independence, all alone in a town full of zombies. Her name is Saffron Mabel, she’s 12 years old... she’s the Living Dead Girl.

About the author

Mika Busch

If I could go back in time, I would be my protagonist. Saffron is the daughter I wish I had, the girl I wish I could have been. She's the child my parents raised me with the optimism to believe could exist. Even in a world filled with zombies. My personal biography isn't relevant, except to say that I am flawed and I strive to improve. My only hope is that my books will inspire children to try to improve, as well. And maybe laugh and smile and get the shivers a few times along the way...
