Publisher's Summary

When news reports start appearing of a zombie outbreak in Ireland, B's racist father thinks it's a joke - but even if it isn't, he figures, it's ok to lose a few Micks.

B doesn't fully buy into Dad's racism, but figures it's easier to go along with it than to risk the fights and abuse that will surely follow sticking up for Muslims, blacks, or immigrants. And when dodging his fists doesn't work, B doesn't hesitate to take the piss out of kids at school with a few slaps or cruel remarks.

That is, until zombies attack the school. B is forced on a mad dash through the serpentine corridors of high school, making allegiances with anyone with enough gall to fight off their pursuers.

For real?

This book was too short for the price. $12 for less than 4 hours? The story was less about zombies and more about prejudice. The narrator, Emma Galvin, is the only reason I continued through the story. Emma Gslvin is great in all her books!

Great zombie read.

Really worth the read, great zombie story, top notch narration. Would of been a full 5 stars if it hadn't been so short. If you are an avid zombie fiction reader, like me, look no further.

Zombies who can think.

When you first meet B, you won't like her very much. She is a racist and a bully, at first. Stick will her, and you find a resilient, tough and honorable individual. Don't let your first impression of B stop you from reading the rest of the series. Excellent zombie series.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Im not sure if i would recommend this book its average at best .. seems to have a lot of racist views in the book which is ok to an extent and the ending is sad but justified.. I will need to buy the next book to see if its worth moving threw the whole series..
