First sentence(s):
I would rather die than face them all again. Die horribly. In a messy, fleshy, blood 'n' guts kind of way. It is a total no-brainer.

It was just another school trip...When their ski-coach pulls up at a cafe, and everyone else gets off, new girl Bobby and rebel Smitty stay behind. They hardly know each other but that changes when through the falling snow, they see the others coming back. Something has happened to them. Something bad...Soon only a pair of double doors stand between those on the bus and their ex-friends the Undead outside. Time to get a life. Author Kirsty McKay is a major new horror/thriller writer for ages 12+. Terrifyingly accomplished and blackly funny.


My two-bits:

The action starts from the get go with feisty YA characters that find themselves against zombies at a cafe stop during a school field trip in Scotland.

The group goes through a snowy landscape to seek survival and answers to what in the world it going on.

Enjoyable zombie read for the winter.
