Description-

  • Can love survive the zombie apocalypse? Maybe Dicey's first chance at a real relationship was dead from the start. She's the star of her high school baseball team, and Jack's the star of the science program. Her idea of a study session includes sleeping in the sun, and his idea of a good game involves dungeons and dice. But opposites start attracting when they're assigned to be partners in a class project. Now an outbreak of a weird infection—it eats your brains and leaves you hungry for more—might not mean just the end of their first date. It might mean the end of everything. Will their relationship fall apart faster than zombies in the Florida sun, or can Dicey and Jack beat the odds and find a happy ending?

    April 4, 2011
    Though it starts out feeling like a lighthearted realistic fiction story, this graphic novel turns into a zombie story partway through. Nerdy Jack Chen and athletic Dicey Bell become more than friends when their high school gives them a parenting assignment to watch over an egg as if it's their baby. The two continue to draw closer, despite their differences. While on a date, word comes through that an infection is causing people to more or less turn into zombies, and the area is supposed to be evacuated. Jack gets bitten by one of the zombies and is fed a special pill in hopes it can stop the infection from overtaking him. But he isn't actually a zombie, which makes the title somewhat misleading. The zombie story comes in abruptly after the cute first half of the book, and it almost feels as if this consists of two different stories only linked together because it has the same characters. The ending also happens too quickly. Görrissen's artwork is slick and attractive, and she clearly has a skill for facial expressions. Ages 11–up.

    Gr 7 Up-This first book in a series of horror romances is a stellar stand-alone thriller. Florida teens Jack Chen and Dicey Bell are from different worlds: he is a super-geek who plays RPGs and reads research projects for fun while she is a star baseball player, the only girl on the team. When they're paired together for the raise-an-egg project, neither of them expects to get romantically involved-or to end up sticking together to hold off a zombie plague. When Jack gets bitten, only an experimental drug developed by his scientist parents can keep him from turning-and he'll only survive with Dicey's help. More romance than horror, the story has delightful dialogue, engaging characters, and pitch-perfect flirting. Gorrissen captures the personalities of the characters in body language and facial expressions, revealing far more about what they're thinking and feeling than is provided in the dialogue alone. This is a strong beginning to a series of short teen romances that will later feature a vampire, faerie, and "monster" boyfriend. Readers of R. L. Stine's "Goosebumps" graphic-novel series (Scholastic) will enjoy this more mature, character-driven horror story.-Alana Joli Abbott, formerly at James Blackstone Memorial Library, Branford, CT
