I received this book to review for a magazine, and at first glance I wasn't that hyped about it. However, once I started it I absolutely *loved* it and finished it in well under a day. I kept coming back to the thought that it's a gory, vulgar mix of Louis Sachar's novel "Holes" and the film Zombieland...and that's a GOOD thing. Nick is sentenced to 3 months of rehabilitation at an outdoor wilderness camp for juvenile delinquents and re-christened "Nero". As he and his fellow inmates begin the long hike that is supposed to transform them into model citizens, their guards are instead transformed into bloodthirsty zombies. As quick as you can say "no one ever expects the zombie apocalypse!" Nero and his ragtag band of young felons are fighting to stay human and avoid the chompers of the zombie hoard. This novel is full of dark humor and irreverent references to punk rock and horror movies, offering a series of "zombrules" to the reader. Nero has an periodic stream of advice from Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson that only he can hear. In this case, The Rock says follow the zombrules, know your role and read this book! (Recommended for older teen readers and adult fans of zombie awesomeness).

Sherrie This book is totally the unholy spawn of the book "Holes" by Louis Sachar and the film "Zombieland" and I am digging it a ton so far.
