Publisher's Summary

It's the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won't stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a monstrous version of their former self.
To Sloane Price, that doesn't sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and she's failed to find a reason to keep going. Now seems like the perfect time to give up. As Sloane eagerly waits for the barricades to fall, she's forced to witness the apocalypse through the eyes of five people who actually want to live. But as the days crawl by, everyone's motivations to survive begin to change in startling ways....

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

If you want to listen to a book about teenagers trying to survive and the main character being suicidal then great read this. If you want a zombie book then look elsewhere.


Would you ever listen to anything by Courtney Summer again?

No I would not read another book by Courtney Summers.

Dour it the best word I can think of to describe this book. This is not your traditional zombie book, the zombies are more a backdrop for a survival story of a group of teenagers, but that is not my problem with this book. The main character wants to kill herself throughout the entire book with no character development whatsoever, this I found just a bit boring and not really what I would choose to read a book about.


What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The performance is ok but a bit lacking in enthusiasm, although I am aware that this is probably because the narrator was trying to embody the depressed wanting to kill herself teenager, so I don’t think the narration was awful, it just fuelled my dislike.


You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Some people may like this book, but I can't get over my dislike for the story itself and no character development.


Any additional comments?
