Description from the amazon:
What happens between death and life can change a girl.

Jessie is a zombie. And this is her story...

Nine years ago, Jessie was in a car crash and died. After she was buried, she awoke and tore through the earth to arise, reborn, as a zombie. Now Jessie's part of a gang. They fight, hunt, and dance together as one-something humans can never understand. There are darkplaces humans have learned to avoid, lest they run into zombie gangs.

But when a mysterious illness threatens the existence of both zombies and humans, Jessie must choose between looking away or staring down the madness-and hanging on to everything she now knows as life...

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): hoo

Serious zombies here.

Very interesting take on zombies in the future. I liked the presentation of the evolution of humans to zombies to other.

The gangs and zombie living style made me think of the Neanderthal period.

This book also gives a new meaning to dying and death.

  1. Yeah, somewhat GRIM, huh?!

    I loved the book, but found Jessie's constant *ill-temper* to be just a wee bit tiring.

    Truth - I was eating pizza when I first started reading this book, and it really put a damper on the ol' appetite hahaha

  2. This book is totally on my to-read list1 XD
