Publisher's Summary

It's the start of summer vacation, and poor Tony has just lost his grandfather. His father is deployed overseas, and his mother is raising him and his little brother all alone. But that's not what's bothering Tony. It's that his nana will be all alone in her small, rural home during the heat of summer, doing the yard work, the laundry, and all the things around the house, while mourning her husband. That won't sit for Tony. With his mother's permission he moves in with Nana for the summer. He rides his bike along the country roads, up and down the hills near Auburn Lake Preparatory Academy, trying to meet a nice girl, and making sure his nana is taken care of. And when the dead rise, and the flesh is consumed, and the living go a little bit mad. Poor little Tony will have to take care of Nana in a wholly different way.

Great addition to the AUD world

My only complaint... it was too short. The character development was great. Okay, I have another complaint... now I want to go back and re-listen to the portion where Adrian found the shed and I wish that there was some note somewhere about where that arc in his story was. Definitely enjoyed this little side jaunt into the AUD world.

Didn't know I wanted to know

Chris Phillbrook has this amazing ability to write stories about things from his other books that I didn't even know I was curious about. These tales books are such a great way to help keep you in the worlds he has created.

It's hard to go wrong with Philbrook and Foster

Be warned this one does not have a lot of action and is darker than his norm.

The Shed was a disaster story for the characters.

I am a fan of Adrians Undead Diary. I am also an animal lover. This was kind of a hard story for me. Grandma should have been put out of her misery. I dont know if she would have approved of her animals endings. I did not even think about the teeth which I should have. Antonio should have been smarter. However. the story is believable tbat these events could happen during an apocalypse. There is also a bonus vampire short story not related to AUD.

Poor hungry Nana....

THE SHED
Chris Philbrook is at his copious best with this short story, from describing the drops of puss plopping on the kitchen floor to Nana's dentures flinging from her mouth. Having a warped sense of humor, I found this story kinda funny in a gory, zombie apoc sort of way.

It's a great addition to the other 3 trips into the AUD world. If you are a fan of the AUD series, get this book. If you haven't you probably want to wait until you've passed the vignette in the series. It was cool to visit the ALPA neighborhood. As usual JAF does an excellent job narratoing, to me he IS Adrian. I think I'm going to go listen to the series again ♡

THE VAMP OF MENLOW PARK
This short is on another collection of short stories, AT LEAST HIS HEAD ISN'T ON FIRE, and was a standout story. I think it could become a whole book if Chris ever wanted to get into writting vampire books.

Great addition to Adrian's world.

Always a pleasure listening to James Foster read, and especially when it's a Chris Philbrook book!

This short story, set in the world of Adrian's Undead Diary, is touching, gruesome and full of the in depth characters Mr. Philbrook always provides with his zombie stories.

Definitely a book you'll want to add to your library.
