Set in a futuristic England, most of the human population has been turned into Zombies by a strange fungus in this dystopian young adult horror eBook. Zombies or “hungries” as they are called in the book spread this fungus through bites. Our heroine, Melanie is not like other people, she and the other children living on the army compound are all “hungries” but unlike the others of their kind they can still relate to the world around them and have seemed to keep their human intelligence. For the safety of all those on the compound the children are locked in their cells and only brought out for class time when they are strapped to wheelchairs, until one day when they compound is attacked. Melanie escapes with her favourite teacher, a scientist and two of the army men from the base and the story follows them as they try to find safety.
The reviewer enjoyed this book very much, it was well written and they enjoyed the character development. As a plus, it has been made into a movie (available on Netflx) that is quite faithful to the book. You can find this title in audio and eBook format from eLibraries Manitoba.
