4.0 out of 5 stars Forget Your Zombie Survival Plants this Time its the Kids Who Make it, June 11, 2011
This review is from: Blind Hunger (Paperback)
Everybody has a zombie plan right? We tell ourselves that its never going to happen and yet who hasn't had a discussion about what they'd do if it ever did? The only trouble is I bet you didn't think that maybe it wasn't going to be you that survived but your kid or the kid next door. What if when it came the zombie was you and every other adult in town, maybe even the world?

In Araminta Matthews' YA novel its the kids dealing with a zombie apocalypse (this time brought on by genetic tampering on parasites intended to make plants produce food even after the plant is in fact dead).As a result the odds are stacked much higher against them and the limitations of their size, skills and ideas can be a big problem.
Fierce, driven to feed and fast these monsters require fast action and clear thinking to combat.

Our protagonists, Kiley a sarcastic 12 year old goth, Sage a genius 9 year old, Bryan the 15 year old boyfriend of Kiley's older sister and Max a social misfit and classmate of Kiley's find themselves facing these creatures early one morning when they should have been starting school.

Matthews achieves a lot with this book, her writing is clear, the action is intense and the characters realistic. Her monsters and their origins are clearly planned out and far from the usual zombie fair. All of this makes for a great YA horror novel and satisfying read.
