Alice Bell has led a sheltered life in suburban Alabama, shaped by her father’s insistence that no one leave the house after dark because of the “monsters.” On her sixteenth birthday, Ali insists the only present she wants is to see her beloved eight-year-old sister’s evening dance recital. On the way home, their car is attacked by zombies in front of the cemetery, and Ali alone survives. Now living with her maternal grandparents, she is consumed by guilt (her dad was right after all), fear (the zombies are still out there), and confusion over her powerhouse attraction to bad boy Cole. Though bearing trademark Harlequin emphases on romance and appearance (every character is gorgeous and described in loving detail), Showalter’s novel also includes ironic allusions to Lewis Carroll (a puffy white rabbit cloud always appears before a zombie attack), as well as pathos, as Ali struggles with the loss of her family. It’s an odd mélange that is more successful in the first half of the book, before plot details set up the action for further titles, but when it works, it’s compulsively readable. Grades 7-12. --Debbie Carton --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
"Showalter has created a promising playground for future story installments." --Kirkus Reviews
packed paranormal story with a
giddy focus on the push-and-pull attraction
between Ali and Cole and the nastier
side of the high school social scene.
The result is a zippy story with crossover
appeal that highlights the power of
guilt, faith, and self-confidence." -- Publishers Weekly
"The action-oriented plot mixed with scenes of a passionate romance between Ali and Cole-and a new way to look at zombies (by fighting them in spirit form)-will be certain to delight fans of paranormal fantasy." --VOYA

Love Nana and Pops. Kat is cool. Alice starts to develop, again I have agree with some reviewers about the romance with Alice and Cole. She lost her family and soon after is fixated on Cole. WOW! I know everyone deals with loss differently but that just seemed a little superficial to me. Well that and her caring about other boys wanting to "date" her. Honestly I think that is my biggest problem.
I don't like to put spoilers in my reviews so I am trying to be honest with my review but careful as to not upset others with spoilers.
Ali is a bit of a roller coaster. I do like her character and her voice but I am appalled at her inability to be a stronger woman for herself. She grows stronger and more independent as she progresses but at times her voice is so weak. Her self control is weak and is appalling. Through most of this book I just wanted her to see herself first. It rarely happens. On the other hand Pops and Nana make Ali's story come alive. They are a hoot.
Kat too is a bit of a roller coaster. She is arrogant and demanding and it is obviously an attempt to distract others. I wasted a lot of thought on what her angle could be.
Cole just seems to be a normal book character to me. I don't love him and I don't dislike him. The visions are the most interesting aspect of Cole.
Over all I really did like this book. It took a bit to really get hooked but by the time I finished I was ready to get the other three books in the series. It also has mad it's way to my repeat read list. It's a short list.
This is definitely a YA a novel, if you absolutely hate YA...Stay away! We have a girl who has been sheltered (Alice) family dies in tragic way (oh no!) of course she is the only one to survive with a few wounds. Girl moves in with grandparents, goes to new school, yada yada yada. Meets the hottest guy there! You can probably predict where this is going....there's even that sweet boy at first she goes after that SPOILER: turns out to be evil SPOILER OVER.
Yes this was like EVERY other YA novel, but I still enjoyed it. The author loves her characters just about as much as Veronica Roth loved hers (read between the lines here hehe). It was pretty predictable and a little humorous, I didn't really find any problems with the characters. The zombie hunting was awesome! The novel wasn't at all slow, it paced quite nicely, and I will look forward to reading the sequel.
