This was a really good "teen" zombie story. It's sorta
This was a really good "teen" zombie story. It's sorta like The Breakfast Club, that gets turned into zombies. I like how Mr. Fischer addressed what happens to zombies in the water, they sink & walk across. The only thing I didn't like was if the Proctor is a zombie & relocates zombies, however the place where they are relocated has no other zombies?? I think teens & adults will like this story.

For Lovers of Zombies!!!
Fischer is back with his latest zombie tale, and it’s another winner! I really enjoyed getting to know Max, especially as she and her “friends” struggled to maintain their humanity in after being unceremoniously turned into zombies.Was this review helpful?

I think what I like best about Fischer’s writing is that it’s unique. He doesn’t follow the traditional zombie lore, and he’s fantastically funny in his telling of events. Though the novel is set in detention, there is so much more to the story than that, and I found the story extremely intriguing as I read. From the epic zombie apocalypse over the school TV system, to the daring escape from the school and into the unknown, I found myself drawn into the story and rooting for the zombies—for the ones who still had brain function, that is.
Call me morbid, but I really enjoyed the tazing and zombie reactions in the beginning of the novel. Of course, I felt terrible for the zombies, until they became the true undead versions we’re used to, but then it was like, taze that zombie! Get ‘em! And yet, the zombies that still have functions kind of break your heart and you can’t help but root for them. And, of course, nothing is what it seems, so as I read the novel and thought I knew what was going on, Fischer kept blindsiding me with revelations that I never saw coming.
Now, truth be told, I didn’t connect with all the characters in the novel, and parts of it were a bit more fast paced than I would have like, but overall, this is a true gem and the perfect read for Halloween. Like I said, Max was really cool, and I think, perhaps, there is room for a sequel, which means more character development, and I would love that!
