Setting out to find a family who will lover, she discovers an orphaned boy of her own age named Chris. He brings her a feeling of hope that she desperately needs because she also discovers a purpose, one fraught with danger and one that might end in the most horrifying death imaginable.
Having waded through an ocean of blood from New York to Colorado, Jillybean is haunted by the idea of revenge. How many fathers or mothers or loved ones has she struck down in her simple quest just to survive? Thousands upon thousands, in all probability. Perhaps more frightening is the question of how many enemies she had left alive and how many more she had created? And how many hundreds of them are consumed with the desire to take revenge on her?
When a terrifying weapon goes missing, the nightmare of revenge becomes a reality and Jillybean must throw herself into a quest to save the Estes Valley from utter destruction. There is just one problem: is the threat even real? Are there people actually roaming the valley at night killing in a terrifying manner? Or are all these enemies figments of her warped imagination?
As the death toll mounts, the people of the Valley begin to ask: Is Jillybean the nightmare? Is she the one doing the killing? And if so, who has the wits to match her genius and stand against her?

Jillybean is up to it AGAIN!
The cover of this book says it all. I did not notice it until I started listening. How prophetic! Doesn't get much more disturbing than seeing a (7-8 year old) little girl, with braided her and cute barrettes, carrying a baby doll while donning a gas mask and walking through a Zombie filled city. WOW! Just WOW! Peter Meredith worked magic making it possible to bring a real sense of social consciousness to this series. He masterfully humanizes the Zombie Apocalypse.
SO sad that all the adults look to poor Jillybean for their survival, putting all the onus on her for the solutions (medical, mechanical, and emotional) and then hold her accountable for the aftermath and devastating results of a (very understandable) psychotic break she succumbs to as a result of PTSD, leading her to perform some very deplorable inhuman acts as coping mechanisms. Can't have it both ways people! NUFF Said!

Best series out there!
Characters you can really get attached to. Jillybean is a one of a kind, and you get a lot of her is this one! Well developed storyline AND lots of action! If you've never read the series, start at the beginning. Be warned though, it's addictive!!

Go on Jillybean
More please, I liked the twists in this and hope one day Jillybean gets the recognition sh deserves for all her hard selfless work, excepting the odd blemish on her record. Can't wait for the next one.

Another great adventure! I love these books and as always I'm rooting for JillyBean, who is really the ultimate hero but in essence is just a little girl wanting to be loved!
