Now in paperback! When the rest of the class goes all brain-dead on new girl Bobby, it's a school-trip splatter-fest and completely not cool!

On the way home from the ski trip, when the bus comes to a stop at a roadside restaurant, everyone gets off and heads in for lunch. Everyone, that is, except Bobby, the new girl, who stays behind with rebel-without-a-clue Smitty.

Then hours pass. Snow piles up. Sun goes down. Bobby and Smitty start to flirt. And to stress a bit, too. Till finally they see the other kids stumbling back.

But they've changed. And not in a good way. Straight up, they're zombies. So the wheels on the bus better go round and round freakin' fast, because that's the only thing keeping Bobby and Smitty from becoming their classmates' next meal. It's kill or be killed in these hunger games, heads are gonna roll, and homework is most definitely gonna be late.

Combining the chill of THE SHINING, the thrill ride of SPEED, the humor of SHAUN OF THE DEAD, and the angst of THE BREAKFAST CLUB, Kirsty McKay's UNDEAD is a bloody mad mash-up, a school-trip splatter-fest, a funny, gory, frighteningly good debut!

I've only watched zombie movies but this book gives a whole new take on zombie's it's interesting and the romance of the story is brief not the corny romance and zombie book, over all this is one of my favorite books by Kristy McKay.

I personally really liked the book, that may also be because I've been switched to a very bland life-style, but nonetheless, it was humorous, easy to read, and... slight romance. Very slight, but I liked that it was only a dash. Very happy to have gotten the second book to read c:

I think this book is really good. Bobby and Smitty are pretty brave to be battling those zombies. This is a very adventurous book, and this is a must-read!

Ehhh... The concept of the story was good, but there were so many loose ends that shouldn't be there. I mean, the whole thing with Alice and Pete having different opinions of what had happened? Yeah, they made a big deal about it, but all of a sudden it was never brought up again. The plot line felt a little choppy. Apart from that, though, it was an okay book.
