it was amazing

Yes. Middle school on up will love it. This is much more than another walking dead book.It uses the catastrophe of a plague that changes people into zombies to explore some bigger issues. Book is much like an onion: you start off with the classic horror movie situation-- small community of survivors surrounded by a world of zombies, then the first layer of the story comes off and you start to see that some people are moving past the cringing horror mode and exploring the world of the zombies. The Next layer is compassion for the people who have lost loved ones to the plague and who want their loved ones terminated with kindness versus those who harvest zombies. And so forth. Don't want to give it all away.

Great message. Has the Hunger Games feel but uplifting and ironically, not so gory.
