I had a hard time classifying this book. It's a horror book kind of but it's not really graphic. There's an unrequited love thing going on, but it's not really a romance. There's a group of young people, but it's not really a young adult book. And it's kind of contemporary, but there is the element of time travel in the book. And not really futuristic, because the contemporary time period is 2006. It's just hard to define to define this book but it is a good book.

The book starts Seffy being told how fake she is by the rival for the affections of Gareth, whom she has loved for a long time but it seems as if he puts up this wall everytime she tries anything, so she just stares at him dreamy eyed, tries and fails to be what he wants and when she reaches out to him, he pats her on the head and pulls away. This all happens while her "friends" tell her she's leading him on. I don't think anything she does is leading him on. If he won't be with her no matter what she does, how is that leading him on? But I digress. Somehow, although they are in different places, Seffy and 3 of her friends are sent back in time to their old home state of Montana that is full of disco zombies. Most of the book I loved, but the dancing zombies not so much. Also, why back to Montana? Why not back to LA where they were actually physically at? And with a group of other unknown Montanaites? I just don't understand that part.

But again, fiction dummy. So, I'm just going to enjoy the ride and quit complaining. The book was really good and I'm planning on reading the rest of the series.
