Ten-year-old Melanie is good-humored and a star student, but she lives in closely guarded lockdown. This partially zombified child has been kept alive as a medical experiment subject after an undead apocalypse laid waste to much of the planet. Early readers of The Girl with All the Gifts have praised it as a horror story with a human touch and as a novel perfectly described on the jacket as a cross between Kazuo Ishiguro and The Walking Dead. To quote the novel itself, "In an age of rust, she comes up as stainless steel." Definitely worth recommending.
