Trapped in his home for 8 days, Michael Matthew Nelson, 16, wondered if his parents would ever come home. Zombies had begun to attack the city and so far his parents hadn't made it home. Scared, but knowing he had to do something, Michael takes a truck and sets out for his grandparents home. He knew that would be the best place for him.
Abby, an orphan who was headed to a new foster home ends up connecting with a rag tag group of men. She saw first hand the terror and destruction the zombies were creating. The group of men she was traveling with were protecting her until slowly, the group began falling apart. Abby finds an empty house and decides to stay there for safety.
Michael also finds the same house about a day later. He and his neighbor's dog decide to make it home. Michael and Abby meet and together they begin an adventure of survival no 16 year old should ever have to face.
Bruce Clothier drops us in the center of the worst war humans could ever fight. A time when survival is the most important thing and trusting anyone can be dangerous. This zombie story tells us how it would really be if we ended up in the Zombie Apocalypse. Not just blood and gore, this story delicately but firmly describes the balance of love, survival and the change in humans when loved ones are at risk. These characters are the most identifiable I've ever encountered in a Zombie book. This one you have got to read!!
I found no issues in this one.
I gave this one 5 out of 5 books because it showed a side of the Zombie Apocalypse many ignore. The very human side.
