Protecting Romero High from all things supernaturally spooky as Dia Muerto is a tough gig for sixteen-year-old Dia Summers, but it’s nothing compared to protecting the ones she loves from real, live—well, formerly alive—zombies. Unlike the zombies that shambled around on set, the real deal don’t follow a script.

At the majorly important birthday party of her boss’ daughter

I found out about this book via Diverse Book Tours. Im actually surprised the author had never contacted Twinja Book Reviews directly, considering we're always on the lookout for Afro-Latina main characters in Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Paranormal or Speculative Fiction books.

I'd seen the cover on the blogosphere once, but it wasn't until DBT, that it fell into my lap. I really liked it. It featured a young Black-Latina actress named Dia Summers, who finds herself on a studio set filled

This was a fun YA Zombie horror tale with a smart, tenacious Afro-Latina protagonist you absolutely can't help but root for. So far, this is Brit Brinson's only book, but I hope to read more from her in the future!

Interesting spin on a zombie/end of the world story. Can't say much more than that without ruining the surprise.

Dia is a teen television star whose greatest worry is the possible cancellation of her show. Until the zombies come. The television studio is being overrun by zombies and Dia must find a way to escape. With a group of friends, enemies, and a cute crush, Dia battles her way through flesh-eating undead, desperate to find a way out of the studio and back to her mom.

Okay, so I'm a sucker for a good zombie novel, and Dia of the Dead is about as good as it gets. Fast-paced and action-packed, the story

MY REVIEW
Dia of the Dead was entertaining as well funny. Dia had to endure a hollywood party, which she did not like that is where it begins to turn fun. If you like the zombie attacks this is perfect.
What changes people or how a group of kids get together is for the reader to find out. What I will say is it is a page turner and entertaining.
Giving this a 4/5 star rating.

given a copy for a honest review.

I enjoyed the book, the story moved fast. A lot of the character traits and situations were definitely inspired by TMZ, Radaronline or one of the blind item websites. Interesting end that leaves it open for a sequel.
