You guys. You guys. From the moment I first heard about this book—on Twitter, many moons ago—I thought it sounded ridiculous. Stupid. Trendy and pandering to all the worst things about young adult literature.

And, eh, okay, maybe it is trendy. And maybe—well, definitely—it’s ridiculous. But I haven’t even finished it yet, and I’m already going to heartily recommend it to you based only on the two stories I quoted above. Not every selection in this anthology is so great (some are pretty lame, if you ask me) but—But!—my God, you guys, the Johnson story. It’s hilarious and sexy and original, and it’s about zombies. Sexy. Zombies. If that isn’t blowing your mind in every possible way, you clearly don’t have a sufficiently visual imagination...

Elizabeth I want one of the teens that I work with to read this, but 1) I should probably read it first and 2) I'm not sure it's ok for a counselor to give a kid a book with girl-unicorn sex in it. Though the gay zombie love story sounds right up his alley.


Betsy Cornwell The girl-unicorn sex is only referred to, not explicitly stated--though she gives birth to a half-unicorn baby, so it's pretty clear.
