For Babymouse, middle school is like a monster movie. You can never be sure who’s a friend and who’s an enemy, and the halls are filled with mean-girl zombies. Instead of brains, the zombies hunger for stuff --- the perfect wedge sandals or the right shade of sparkly lip gloss --- and they expect everyone to be just like them. But Babymouse doesn’t want to fit in --- she wants to stand out! So she joins the film club to write and direct a sweeping cinematic epic. Will making the film of her dreams turn into a nightmare?
