Passing Strange, by Daniel Waters (Hyperion, 2010)

In life, Karen DeSonne passed as straight, afraid to reveal her true orientation. In death, she’s passing as one of the living, a zombie girl hiding in plain sight. Even as bigots fan the flames of hate and intolerance against the “differently biotic” and make it nigh-impossible for zombies to go out in public, Karen’s going undercover to try and save her friends. But when she starts dating noted anti-zombie zealot Pete Martinsburg as part of the process, will she betray everything she holds dear? Passing Strange, like the others in the Generation Dead series, is a brilliant, poignant, compelling examination of the relationship of the outsider to society, with zombies standing in for any group you care to imagine and Karen as a protagonist worth cheering for.
