Diary of a Minecraft zombie girl
"Zam has a problem. Lots of problems, actually - life as a teenage zombie chick isn't easy after all. She's always getting in trouble with her dad for eating things like apples, steak, sugar, and basically everything besides brains. Zam thinks he's stuck in the past, and ends up spending a lot of time grounded. Between punishments and the start of school, though, she finds time to sneak off, try new foods, hang out with her friends, and learn that her stubborn father is just one of her many worries as a youth growing up in a blocky world."-- from back cover.
