It turns out the books aren't really my thing. I gave it a go, and it seemed well-done. Honestly, I skimmed most of the book. I wanted to see how it ended but I didn't want to spend a lot of time on it. The author had an... INTERESTING twist to how Zombies are made. I wasn't a fan though. Ew.
I suppose if he grossed me out, he was successful. After all, it is a Zombie book.
It ends on a cliffhanger, and there will definitely be another book. However, I'm more interested to see what the title will be. I don't think I'll be reading the sequel.
You'll probably love this if you like teen books and zombies!
Jake Stephens was always an average, fly-under-the-radar guy. The kind of guy who would never catch the attention of an insanely popular girl like Amanda Blake-or a psychic teenage government agent like Cass. But one day during lunch, Jake's whole life changed. He and Amanda suddenly locked eyes across the cafeteria, and at the exact same instant, they turned into zombies and devoured half their senior class.
Now Jake definitely has Amanda's attention-as well as Cass's, since she's been sent on a top-secret mission to hunt them down. As Jake and Amanda deal with the existential guilt of eating their best friends, Cass struggles with a growing psychic dilemma of her own-one that will lead the three of them on an epic journey across the country and make them question what it means to truly be alive. Or undead.
