My Rotten Life: Nathan Abercrombie, Accidental Zombie by David Lubar
Nathan is part of the unpopular group at school. As the book begins he is embarassed three times in the same day. Once when a popular girl pretends to invite him to her party just to laugh at him, once when he is the slowest runner in gym class, and once more when he can't beat even the "easy" level on a video game. Wishing that he didn't have to feel the hurt of embarassment anymore he goes along with classmate Abigail to try out an experimental potion called Hurt be Gone. But instead of the one drop he is supposed to try, Nathan is accidentally covered with the liquid and begins turning into a zombie. The upside is that he doesn't feel any physical pain anymore. The downside is that parts of his body sometimes fall off. If Abigal can't find the cure for Nathan before he is completely dead he will never be able to come back to his real life.
