Reposting an Old Review  
So, what I liked about the book:
its cover is beautiful and related to the story-many beautiful covers have no connection to the story these days.
the story began and ended perfectly and I had no trouble getting into it.
it was the right length and a very fast read for me.
humor was done just right.
the balance between science and the paranormal elements was good.
What I did not like:
the female lead seemed to be head over heels in love with the coolest guy in school-how many more times is this going to be done?
the virus/infection was spreading in the school and none of the adults seemed to notice-didn't buy it.
All that being said, I can't wait to try the next book in the series because the author has a really fun way of writing a story.

Midu Hadi :-D you'll like it for sure!

Anna (Annaberry Reads) I want to read this. :D

Midu Hadi hey Annaberry! lemme know if you like it!

Anna (Annaberry Reads) I definitely will Midu :D I put it on hold at the library, so hopefully it won't be too long before I get my hands on a copy. :D

Sashana I've had this for the longest but I've never read a book about zombies so I'm a bit weary.

Midu Hadi this isn't too gory, Sashana. Its a perfect start to the zombie genre. or maybe i've been desensitized ;-)

Midu Hadi @Anna:
and don't you just LOVE the cover?

Anna (Annaberry Reads) I do love the cover. I wonder what the story is behind it since it's about zombies. :D

Midu Hadi it is related, so RAFO (Read And Find Out)!
