This post is for the older set of kids who love the library. I have discovered a fantastic book, Undead by Kirsty McKay, that is full of horror, adventure, mystery and fun. The catch is that it is best suited for grades 5 and up. If you have read the Hunger Games then you can do this book. We have it over in the children's department but it is written for older kids. I devoured this book (inside joke)! I encourage our tweens to come in and check out this awesome book if you like horror and especially if you like zombies. If you are anything like me, when you get to the end you will be desperate for the sequel. Happy Reading!
"When the rest of the class goes all brain-dead on new girl Bobby, it's a school-trip splatter-fest and completely not cool!
On the way home from the ski trip, when the bus comes to a stop at a roadside restaurant, everyone gets off and heads in for lunch. Everyone, that is, except Bobby, the new girl, who stays behind with rebel-without-a-clue Smitty.
Then hours pass. Snow piles up. Sun goes down. Bobby and Smitty start to flirt. And to stress a bit, too. Till finally they see the other kids stumbling back.
But they've changed. And not in a good way. Straight up, they're zombies. So the wheels on the bus better go round and round freakin' fast, because that's the only thing keeping Bobby and Smitty from becoming their classmates' next meal. It's kill or be killed in these hunger games, heads are gonna roll, and homework is most definitely gonna be late.
Combining the chill of THE SHINING, the thrill ride of SPEED, the humor of SHAUN OF THE DEAD, and the angst of THE BREAKFAST CLUB, Kirsty McKay's UNDEAD is a bloody mad mash-up, a school-trip splatter-fest, a funny, gory, frighteningly good debut!" This description is from Amazon.com
