Highschool of the Dead volume 5 contains chapters 18-22 and is a direct continuation of previous volumes. It's best to start at the beginning.

Takashi's group has made their way to a shopping center where a junior police officer and several civilians have holed up waiting for reinforcements. But new potential allies and a source of supplies brings just as many complications as advantages, and more tough choices await as reality intrudes on everyone's plans.

While it's really a book about "Fan Service" I love the plot. The characters are great and the art is top notch. If you can get over the triple E boobs in every shot, it really is a great story.

Woo! Love Busujima. She is absolutely awesome and I can't wait to learn more of her past! The tension builds and I can't help but feel for the characters and care about each one of them!
The Cosplay bonus episode at the end made the book. Otherwise, pretty standard HOTD fare. Glad to finally be beyond where the anime ended though.
High school + zombies that's all I have to say.
