The zombie epidemic has begun, and the world is reeling from this onslaught of mindless, merciless killers. In a desperate attempt to rid the world of a horrific new disease, humankind poisons its own ecosystem, and dooms not only the zombies it fights, but also the very people it is trying to save.
At 16 years old, Kala is the sole survivor in her family after the first wave of zombie infections tore through her hometown in southern Florida, only to then be gunned down by an FBI sharpshooter while trying to escape the diseased city with her friends. When she finally wakes up, she finds herself in a dangerous new America. Her only hope is to travel north with her newfound companions, where they hope to find food, shelter, and protection. Their path will not be easy, because zombies are not the only killers roaming the streets. Hope balances on the blade of a knife, and survival is the only option left.

Nothing about this book would I have changed. I had a movie playing in my head the whole time I listened.
I haven’t had the chance to read many zombie related stories, but this was a really good one! I wish I had read Book 1, prior to this one though. Either way, I’d definitely recommend this story to others.
Best part of the story was when Calla and her group where able to get through the military blockade into the city. I was on pins and needles wondering what was going to happen to Calla and her group when the guys in the hummers were charging to the gate. The the surprise RBG's they shot off at the military guys. Very surprising! I kind of wished that her group and the ‘hummer’ guys would have met up.
I wasn’t a fan of this narrator. There was really no variation between characters besides the kids and Nolan and his sub-par Australian accent. Most of the characters sounded the exact same and this made it a little hard to follow who was talking. I’m sure reading the book would have been much better. When the kids talked, oh man, lol. The narrator sounded so cheesy, as in it was really obvious it was a woman pretending to be a kid. It just didn’t work for me. Does the narrator have a natural accent? I ask because for whatever reason whenever she said ‘peninsula’ she would say it like ‘peninshula’, with an ‘h.’
Either way, I’d recommend the narrator Valerie Gilbert, she does a great job with accents and different character voices and could totally see/hear her reading this story.
Of course I would! As mentioned above, this was a great story and am willing to see any zombie related movies! Love zombies!
Calla is sixteen? That was really hard to believe considering all the random things she knew and the way she acted.
So Calla ends up getting out of the airplane hangar at the beginning. She was able to change her clothes but still had no shoes. There was no mention of her finding shoes unless
I somehow missed that part. There were also no comments regarding her smell considering she had peed herself at the beginning.
How did Calla know about all the different bones and body inside parts?
I found it strange that given how smart Calla seemed she thought her car would have no problems running after having sat for three months. I just did some research to find out that a car battery typically dies after one month unless it’s a higher end car, which Calla’s car did not sound like.
Given what the characters or people of this story were going through, why were they still relying on God to help them? They were praying, calling out to him, and then wondering why he wasn’t helping.
