Publisher's summary

Josh Rondell is 12 years old and known as the "living dead boy" due to his rampant love of all things zombie. As the head of the Zombie Hunters Club, he's obsessed with preparing for the zombocalypse. Though no one around him really believes that zombies will one day rise to devour the living, Josh is convinced it just might happen.

When zombies do shamble into his schoolyard, Josh finds himself the leader of the dwindling band of zombie hunters, and he is charged with protecting them all. Josh's baby brother, his closest friends, and the love of his young life try to survive as the undead take over their town. Trapped in his treehouse and surrounded by the dead, will Josh be able to save them all?

The Walking Dead meets Scream for kids

Imagine The Walking Dead as told from a young Carl’s point of view, but Carl an uber-geek about zombies. That’s Josh in The Living Dead Boy. So, as the zombie apocalypse actually happens, Josh and his band of tweener “zombie hunters” provide a lot of meta moments that are very reminiscent of similar moments in Scream, albeit with a less humorous bent. As a children’s book writer myself, although this book is marketed as a young adult book, I would say it feels more like a book with middle grade sensibilities (including the age of the protagonists), with some young adult gore and violence. I listened to the audiobook, and if you can muscle your way through the narrator to get to the second book, please do. This book did leave me wanting more, and fortunately, the sequel, Lost in Texas, has a much better voice actor reading that one.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
