She won't rest until she's sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.
Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that's all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.
Her father was right. The monsters are real.
To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn't careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies.

WHAT A LETDOWN!
She could always redeem herself, so maybe, yeah.
I would cut/edit the scene when Alice and Cole meet for the first time. The moment their eyes meet, they both have this hallucination where they are making out and lusting on each other. And what does the brooding handsome love interest with violet eyes (rolling my eyes here) do? He glares, glowers, snarls, and grits his teeth at Alice. And how does Alice react? Nope, she doesn't flip him off or anything normal like that, she drools and makes goo goo eyes, because you know, psycho douche bags are SO hot!
This book has raving reviews. So yeah, it's not what I was expecting. At all. I guess it's better if I just list my issues:
1. Cole= douche, controlling, possessive, violet eyes, suffers from severe alpha male issues.
2. Alice= being inside this girl's head was painful. WAY too insecure. She questions everything she says and everything everyone else says and everything she thinks, AND she pines for an unlikable douche (instantly, btw).
3. The whole Alice in Wonderland thing is misleading. The only things that relate to that in this novel are that the MC's name is Alice, that there is this rabbit-shaped cloud that appears to warn the MC of danger, and the titles of the chapters. That's it.
4. The writing= excessively tongue-in cheek and tries too hard to be hip-and-teenagey, to the point where it pulls you out of the story. And there were several descriptions that were just silly:
“The mountains, valleys and lush green trees highlighted by the streetlamps.”
Wow, those must be some ginormous streetlamps...
