Lew has been falsely accused of writing his initials on the principal's door. Knowing that the school bully, Lugnut, is the likely culprit, Lew and his friend Gary descend to the middle school's basement in search of Lugnut. What they find there is not to be believed--a group of zombies living as if they owned the space beneath the classrooms. It's a fight for life as the three boys try to escape the undead. The story itself is somewhat unremarkable but I 'd give it 3.5 stars because it will be enjoyed by students who are struggling with reading. It is accessible to those reading far below grade level. Black and white illustrations complement the story and there is plenty of white space between written lines. Discussion questions, writing prompts, and a glossary are at the end of the book.
