4.0 out of 5 stars A boy, a girl, and a zombie, March 1, 2010
This review is from: R.I.P.: A Zombie Novel (Paperback)
Billy Barton watched the falling star from his bedroom window and then made a wish. On the night of his twelfth birthday Billy wished for a friend. He was an overweight kid whose father had run off some years before, and who was relentlessly bullied in school. All he wished for that night, though, was a friend. That falling star was a meteorite that landed just a couple miles away from Billy's house, in a cemetery, cracking open and dripping a yellow pus-like substance into a grave.
Deke Donnelley was an astronomy student at a local state college who also watched the falling star that night. He tracked it to where it landed and went to find it. Deke was a geeky, skinny kid who was also bullied at school. He was hoping to make a major astronomical find and hopefully change the way people looked at him.
Jessica was a new girl in school that sat next to Billy....he was completely smitten. Was she the friend he had wished for? RIP was a corpse reanimated by the yellow ooze from the meteorite. He felt bad for Billy and had a proposition for him. Was he the friend Billy had wished for? Maybe this is a case of "be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it".
R.I.P. is a young adult novella about an awkward boy, the girl he loves, and a zombie. This was a fun story, full of the requisite horror, a fair amount of humor, and plenty of coming-of-age angst. It's a quick read, at only 91 pages, but any teen that's a fan of horror will like this book.
