SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS:

When the streets are full of bloodsuckers, werewolves, zombies and ghouls, where will you turn? The cops don't know how to stop them, the Army's pretty much given up and even the Marines are stumped when their bullets and grenades fail to stop the onslaught.

Have no fear, Ushers, Inc. is here! Four high school movie ushers, who collectively have seen over 42,000 hours of B- and C-horror movies know just what to do.

Did you know copper pennies can stop a zombie in its tracks? Abby Cooper, Head Usher, does.

Did you know garlic paste is twice as effective on vampires as garlic cloves? Abby Cooper does.

Did you know werewolves are absolutely petrified of seeing a Hershey's kiss? Abby Cooper does.

The girls at Cypress Cove High school-especially Rich Witch Mia Hopwood-call Abby an uber-geek; the victims she rescues from zombies, werewolves and vampires just call her one thing: Hero!

But Abby and her fearless crew of movie ushers-slash-superheroes face more than just bloodsuckers and brain-biters. There's Wyatt Winters, for one; he's the hot new PR guru Ushers, Inc. has had to hire to handle all their press - and with his smoldering good looks and air of confidence, he's causing more than just tension between Abby and her old boy-crush-and fellow usher-Zach Nash.

And let's not forget the monsters, who aren't too happy about four geeky ushers beating their butts all over creation. Now the League of Associated Undead (LAD) is converging on Cypress Cove, determined to stop Ushers, Inc. once and for all.

When it's the monsters versus the monster hunters, who you gonna call?

Ushers, Inc., that's who!

MY REVIEW:

I received this book for review from the author. I did not receive any compensation for my review, and the views expressed herein are my own.

I love cheesy B-horror movies, and this book is like a cheesy B-horror movie in print!

Ushers, Inc. is about four teenagers (who are also all orphans that live together at the Meriwether Home for Wayward Boys and Girls – love that name!) who work as ushers in a movie theatre. In their world, the undead (zombies, werewolves, and vampires) are real. These kids live and breathe cheesy horror movies (having watched them all in the theatre), and they know all the tricks. When word gets out that these ushers know how to kick some paranormal butt, they become small-town celebrities. The bad news is that this unfortunately brings unwanted attention from the League of Associated Undead who wants to eliminate them.

Fischer does a very convincing job writing as a teen girl. Abby is one tough chick! I liked her character very much!

Fans of cheesy B-horror movies will enjoy this book, as well as teens. It was a fun read!

MY RATING: 3 stars! It was good! I enjoyed it!!
