Synopsis

Death was everywhere. They all stared at me, bumping into one another and slowly coming forward.

Sixteen-year-old Zharie Young is absolutely certain her mother morphed into a zombie before her untimely death, but she can’t seem to figure out why. Why her mother died, why her aunt doesn’t want her around, why all her dreams seem suddenly, hopelessly out of reach. And why, ever since that day, she’s been seeing zombies everywhere.

Then Bo moves into her apartment building—tall, skateboard in hand, freckles like stars, and an undeniable charm. Z wants nothing to do with him, but when he transforms into a half zombie right before her eyes, something feels different. He contradicts everything she thought she knew about monsters, and she can’t help but wonder if getting to know him might unlock the answers to her mother’s death.

As Zharie sifts through what’s real and what’s magic, she discovers a new truth about the world: Love can literally change you—for good or for dead.

In this surrealist journey of grief, fear, and hope, Britney S. Lewis’s debut novel explores love, zombies, and everything in between in an intoxicating amalgam of the real and the fantastic.

Review

Ever since Zharie’s mother died she’s been seeing Zombies. It’s not all the time and it’s not everyone but she’s seeing them. She wonders if she’s crazy and only she can see them or if others can too. The only person who believes her is her best friend, a person she’s never met in real life but who just gets her. Then a boy moves into the apartment complex she lives in with her aunt and she starts to see the Zombies in a different light.

This was such a beautiful book about love, loss, and dealing with ones grief. I picked up the audiobook and was hooked. I listened to it all in a day. It’s been categorized as a Horror, Fantasy, Contemporary, and Romance and it is all those things but to me it’s missing a touch of Magical Realism. The writing was done with such prose that you could see what Zharie saw and felt all that she felt throughout the story.

I will definitely be recommending this to everyone!
