Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow
Teenage Dru and her dad travel around the country tracking and hunting evil creatures. Currently in the Dakotas, Dru stalks out of school after facing up to a bullying history teacher; she’s followed by Graves, a half-Asian goth boy who lives on his own. Waking up the next morning to find her father hasn’t come home, Dru waits for him, only to hear tapping at the back door. The “person” at the back door turns out to be a zombie who used to be her dad, and that’s just the beginning! Dru encounters Graves at the local mall and takes refuge with him. After being attacked by bizarre creatures, they hope to be safe at Dru’s house. As they try to figure out what’s going on, Dru and Graves keep running into more creatures, both allies and enemies. The book ends with a cliffhanger. Watch for a sequel.
I found the plot and characters a little confusing at first, but readers who like zombie and werewolf fiction will get completely involved.
