really liked it

I received this book from NetGalley.

Nick is your typical teenage boy. His parents are divorced, his dad has gone off the deep end so Nick helps take care of his sister Amanda who has Aspbergers, when he’s not in high school or working at Rebozzo Aviraculture. (aka a chicken factory) Things in his life are moving along: There’s a girl he wants to ask out, he gets a promotion at work, slices open his hand, gets fired- then arrested and sent to a camp for troubled youth where he is given the handle Nero. And if that’s not enough, the camp's attacked by zombies. Nothing too strange, right?

The Infects is an unusually awesome book that is funny, irreverent, campy and clever. And I love clever. The story is told in a great, masculine, voice that is very authentic. You want to hear more from Nick/Nero and get his take on things. Where many teen/YA books are geared toward girls and romance, this story will grab both male and female readers a like. Girls will most definitely want to date Nick, and the guys will want to follow him into the next book.

If you want to go on a wild ride through a zombie filled camp for troubled youth, this is your book.
If you want to read a book that looks at the world from the view of a teenage guy, this is your book.
If you love chicken, laughter, adventure, gore, girls and zombies, don’t walk, RUN out and get this book. But keep one eye open for zombies when you do…
