Unbelievably good. From the start I was hooked the beginning yanks you in.
Alyssa and her friends, as well as their teacher are in New York on a field trip when an infection hits their home in Northern California. Unsure what's happening and worried about their families they embark on a journey a crossed the country. Only when they got home they find an empty town and infected people heck bent on eating them.
This was very classic zombie, with shambling dead folk eating all those not like themselves. Alyssa was realistic and likable main character. The group of secondary characters changed throughout the book. I was constantly on my toes wondering when they would be attacked again. My only problem with the book was the inconsistencies. For example at one point they leave their weapons in the van only to have them a few pages later. Other than a few incidents like that, it was super good and I had a hard time putting it down.

How I Got It: Sent a copy by the author
