Nathan and Misty snuck out for some fast food sustenance late at night....and got caught by Misty's dad. Totally grounded. So then they decided to run away. Who knew that the zombie apocalypse would hit their town while they were hiding in the woods overnight? And who would have guessed that lemon juice kills the undead? It's Nathan, Misty, and a super geeky kid against the zombie horde. Just hope they don't run out of lemonade!

This book is a fun read! Cute story....reminds me a lot of the Goose

Note: This book was sent to me by the author for an honest review. Because this book is a Children's book about 14 year olds, I decided to have my 14 year old son read it and give me his review. The things he says and suggests are his opinion and not mine. LOLZ! That means if you let your 7 year old child read this book and it gives them nightmares... just remember - Mickey said it was ok... not me ;)

Want to save the world? Want to eradicate the living dead? There is a way to do it if you just have the tools, or in this case ingredients. head on over to your closest grocer and pick up everything you need to survive the zombie apocalypse.


Yes. You read that right.


You know how the old saying goes, when life hands you lemons, you squirt them at zombies. Wait, no, well, it was something like that.

The first thought that comes to mind when I think of this book is that it is insane. I mean this, of course, in a good way - the book is so insane that I don't know exactly how to think or feel about it, though I will try to express myself properly in this review.

When the author contacted me about reviewing the book, he sent me a sample chapter and I was immediately hooked by the writing style. There's a nice flow and rhythm to the words, plus an air of sarcasm

I'm a big fan of the zombie genre, so I jumped to the chance when MJA Ware offered the book Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb to me for review as I thought it will be a great story to get me in the mood for Halloween.

Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb is targeted at all ages so it is not as horrific as The Walking Dead but has enough gory scenes to satisfy zombie fans.

It may sound strange at first to hear that lemon juice can be used to destroy zombies but the story does offer a surprisingly plausible expl
Who doesn’t love a good zombie book? I know I do. So when I was presented with the opportunity to read Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb I took it. I’m really glad I did because Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb was awesome.
I love the characters. Nate as narrator, was really funny and was definitely realistic in the way he thought and talked and acted. I really liked Nate. I also liked Misty. I liked the relationship between Misty and Nate, they were best friends going through that phase where things are

I was a little leary of reading a book about zombies, but I thought it might be a fun read and something both my twelve-year-old son and I could read. I thought I read a review that called this YA, but I would say it somewhere between YA and MG. The grossness factor was more than enough to keep my son entertained, but not so much it turned me off. The adventure was suspensefull and page turning, mixed with a great deal of humor. My favorite line was when Nate suggests Misty will have plenty of c ...more

Now a word from Rylie's mom:

I have been scouring the interenet, looking for good books for my daughter to read. Reading is something I want to incourage in my children but sometimes finding something that she likes is a little difficult. When I first showed this to her, her first reaction was... "Zombies." And she made a face. But I convinced her to give it a try and she read it in just a few days. She even brought the kindle

This was a fun read! The three characters that are the important characters in this story -- Nate, Misty and Kali -- are believable as young children caught up in a zombie contamination. They accidentally discover that lemonade will kill the zombies, and later even guess why it works.

The novel has some gore, some tense scenes and lots of humor tying it all together.

There's a bit of a coming-of-age element as an additional theme. Nate, the main character, attempts to negotiate through the diffi

Now for a review from the A.D.D. Guy

Yea I don't get the title either, but any book that has the image of what I want my wife too look like on the cover shooting a gun is a book worth giving a try!

As Im reading the book right away something was missing. The kids sneak out of the house to camp or hang out or something and then their walking back home. We aren't told what the kids did while they were gone. It turned me away a bit. I thought "well if this book is going to jump or skip 'scenes' it's
Nathan’s growing up, but best friend Misty’s growing faster, their relationship just starting to struggle with the strain. Parents struggle too, alternately planning vacations together and refusing to let the children see each other. But running away from home turns out to be a bad idea since the two kids return to a town emptied of the living and filled with the living dead. Soon they’re raiding Wal-Mart, trying to recreate zombie survivals of movie fame, and slowly realizing most of the people ...more

.Review: Nate and Misty find themselves in a bit of a bad situation. With bad meaning there are zombies out roaming the streets and our two heroes had to fight for survival. Along the way, they meet a young boy called Kali, who they end up taking along for the ride, and find an unconventional weapon for use against the undead-any liquid with a high pH value- the most accessible of this being lemon juice!
It all starts very quickly, with the mayor being bitten and turning into a zombie within thre
I had mixed feelings about reading this book. On the one hand, I'm not a big fan of monster/zombie themed books. On the other hand, it sounded like a book reluctant readers might like and I am always on the lookout for books to entice them to read. So, I picked up the book and read it.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Yes, it does involve zombies which provided a strong gross element to the story, but the interactions between the characters also added a humorous element that balanced out

This book was the perfect blend of 'B movie' humor and the zombie gore I love, and I say that with all the positive feeling I can. I loved this book! The characters were fun, and refreshing. The violence was necessary, bloody, and at times funny.

Obviously this was written for slightly younger audiences than the other Zombie books I've been reading, but it's probably the one that I had the most fun reading. It definitely doesn't fit the horror genre, but Ware has hit the nail on the humorous angl

Favorite Quote/Excerpt:

Nate:Misty did you notice the zombie's eyes? All pale and fogged over-like Mayor Frank? I think he might have been a zombie or maybe starting to turn into one.

Misty: Oh, good. That's a relief.

Nate: Good? What the heck do you mean, good? I said, still irritated with her.

Misty:At least he wasn't trying to kiss me.

Nate:He was trying to bite your head off. Isn't that worse?

Misty just shrugged.

So this seems to be a repeating occurrence lately. I start a book doubting that I'll enjoy it more than a little, and what really happens is I love it. It's weird.

OVERALL IMPRESSION: This was a really fun book to read. It was amusing, entertaining and silly but still had a great story line that kept me hooked. It had the suspense of wondering if they would survive all of the zombies, but it wasn't too scary for kids to enjoy. I think the book had a great balance between suspense and humor.

The book also had two short stories at the end, which I found very entertaining, espeically the one about the hobgoblin.

Yes, the title is long and a little over the top. But it fits the story, it's a zombie book after all. It's a YA novel and it is very respectful to young people's sensibilities. No cursing or strong language and no explicit gore or violence. I didn't miss a thing with it having safe language. It does have elements of good story. I am glad that wasn't missing.

Ware follows the basic zombie story formula. No surprises. A lot of running and evading and zombie killing. The characters are interesting

This book has to be one of the most interesting takes on Zombies I’ve read yet. The author is quick and to the point. No time wasted on nonsense and all the detail you need to understand what’s going on. It is perfect for young adult readers.

Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb by MJA Ware

This book details the interaction of a teenager boy and girl and some horrid, disgusting zombies.

Nate and Missy’s adventures are utterly preposterous and imminently entertaining. Their relationship is refreshing and contrary to what is normally presented in teenage literature. The relationship should resonate with “real” teenagers who most frequently do not resemble the cast of Twilight.

The action was well done and graphic without the overtones of realit

I've developed an interest in MG/YA zombie novels of late - and it's incredibly interesting to see how a story written for a (much) younger audience than myself can be appealing to a whole range of ages.

Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb (SZJMB) is one of those books, and I really enjoyed this one. It's a zombie story, but more appropriate for kids around the 8-10 year age range, although it doesn't hold back on the realities of what would happen during a zombie apocalypse.

Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb (what a mouthful!) is a fun, zombie filled adventure starring two teenagers who have run away for a week only to return to a deserted town with evil zombies and no parents in sight. The rest of the book is filled with their attempts to survive and hopefully escape.

What would you do if zombies invaded your hometown? Well, we're about to find out with Nate and Misty! These two are forced to be resourceful and find a way to survive when all the adults are gone or zombified.

For a children book, it has strong characters and an engaging plot. In a zombie-infested city, the action never really ends. There is an interesting power dynamic between Misty and Nate. Both are strong in their own ways and that makes them believable and fun to learn about.

This is not your typical shoot in the head and kill zombie story. However, Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb, is a great zombie apocolypse novel. I like how the author decided to go outside the boundaries of normal and make the zombies killable by lemonade. All the characters were very enjoyable, and in that awkward pre-adolscent stage. You could really identify with the sadness, frustration, and despair the characters felt. Although, by no means was this an entirely sad book. It had funny and witty ...more
