Generation Dead (Generation Dead #1)
Phoebe Kendall is just your typical Goth girl with a crush. SHe’ strong and silent…and dead.
All over the country, a strange phenomenon is occurring. Some teenagers who die aren't staying dead. But when they come back to life, they are no longer the same. Feared and misunderstood, they are doing their best to blend into a society that doesn’t want them.
Generation Dead is Twilight, but with zombies instead of vampires. And it's just as terrible.
Meet Phoebe. She's a goth girl! (How 1999!) Phoebe listens to so many cool bands, like This Mortal Coil and Bronx Casket Company. We know this because author Daniel Waters assures us every fifteen pages that he is an expert on his goth rock. Phoebe also writes poetry! It's really, really terrible poetry, too!
Meet Adam. Phoebe lives next door to him. He's a footb...more

Reason One: The cover is amazing. That just deserves it's own star.
Reason Two: Although the story had a really boring plot, I did like the ending. Because it left me with questions. Half of me sort of wants to read the 2nd book just to find out what happens with Phoebe & Adam but the other half says no. Because if this book was crappy the next one will most l...more
It started with one strange case, and now it’s happening to more and more American teens. But having a second chance doesn’t make living, or whatever their existence is called, any easier for these “living impaired” or “differently biotic” teens. They face much discrimination, fear, and hatred, and they don’t have any legal rights either. That means anyone who hates them enough can destroy them – and the differently biotic won’t be a...more

She and her BFF, Margi, have a common bond when it comes to all things black and combat boots. Her best guy friend is Adam (who is finally realizing that he is in love with her and of course Phoebe is completely oblivious to this). Now she has mixed feelings toward a guy… but he’s not just an...more
The concept of the novel was good - I'm a big zombie fan and this is the first time I've read anything where the undead do not go shuffling around eating brains, but instead, try to incorporate themselves into living society as much as...more

The setting of this book is present day, except that American teenagers have started to come back from the dead. Not all teenagers come back, and experts aren't sure what's causing this phenomenon. Fast food? Too much video games? Anyway, these "living impaired" students are re-entering school, but facing a lot of prejudice. They freak people out. No one socializes with them. One of the zombies decides he's going to...more
The actual story revolves mostly around the prejudice and discrimination the "living impaired" are subjected to by the still living humans. As a result of the strong anti-racism (or "anti-bioist" as it calls it) themes in this novel, it is not the lightest...more

Generation Dead By Daniel Walters has one of the most creative and interesting story lines I have ever read. It’s one of those books that you need to be patient with too become interested.
In the beginning of the book (and what the book is based around), is about these teenagers who for some reason, come back to life after death. Only teenagers can come back to life, and sometimes not all of them do. In this book, these teens are being allowed to go too p...more
I didn't expect to be highly entertained, or feel that Generation Dead would mean a thing to me except maybe a possibly mildly interesting read... Then, I read the book..
This is a book that could, and most likely has been over-looked by many. Or thought of as Twilight with zombies in place of vampires. In some ways you coul...more
In this debut novel, dead teens don't always stay that way. Some inexplicably come back to "life," milky-skinned versions of themselves who leave scientists perplexed wi...more
