This was a very interesting concept - what happens in the future if there is a zombie apocalypse. I had very high hopes. The plot was interesting but what really kept this from being better was the characters. The main character was whiny and so indecisive that I was almost hoping for a not so happy ending for her. The book is relatively short as it is but if you cut out all the self pity it would be significantly shorter. I understand teenage angst but it was excessive here. There are two more books in this series and I may or may not read them. I think they each revolve around a different (as of yet not introduced) character living in a different town/city/area. I'm interested in what's happened to other areas of the country/world so I may pick up the second one sometime in the future to see if that character is better.
