Regina MarlerWitty and well written, Generation Dead is a classic desegregation story that also skewers adult attempts to make teenagers play nice. An unctuous father-daughter research team enlists a handful of students at Oakvale High for its work-study program on the differently biotic, but the most effective adult in the book is the coach who wants to arrange a hit on a zombie who's tried out for football ("case of beer to whoever puts him out"). Motivational speakers, politically correct speech and encounter groups come in for special ridicule.
