This book actually handles the genre in exactly the right way. The book doesn't change the setting or the world. The writers obviously didn't think, "How can I make my zombies special?" Instead, they asked, "What's an interesting story I can tell within the context of a zombie apocalypse?"
That, in my opinion, is the best possible route a writer can take. If I'm in the mood for a zombie apocalypse, I want a zombie apocalypse. The story should be interesting. The characters should be interesting. The setting should be interesting, yet familiar.
This book does all that exceptionally well. Telling the story of a zombie apocalypse through the eyes of a child is a fun approach and is handled wonderfully.
All in all, this book was a nice take on a familiar genre. I fully plan to read more.
And rather than finding out as each event occurs, everything is written by this little girl in her journal. In the middle of an invasion and running for her life she still records her life for future reference. I sure wouldn't be able to do that.
I'm quite eager to see what happens next to Kellie and can't wait to read the next installment.
Sometimes the things she is writing and thinking about seem from a girl who is a bit younger than 9. But she is scared and alone so the fear probably makes her do more childish things. But she is brave and determined because she does get away and manage to stay alive. This is frightening and heart breaking to think about. Makes me wonder what my daughter would have done all alone at that age. How I would have felt as a mom. No family around, no friends and running for your life from dead things trying to bite you.
This first ebook leaves you really wanting to download the next one to find out what happens next to poor little Kellie. Eventually things will probably get much worse so I might not have the guts to read all the awful things that might await a little girl who is all alone during a zombie apocalypse.
It is difficult to pin this book down in a review however as, although I'm sympathetic with another reviewer who felt they were glad they didn't pay for it, I can also say this is definitely an interesting and very creative epilogue and a great way to exploit the eBook format.
Yet what it boils down to for me is that the actual content is far too short to justify my paying the list price for it. As Part 2 is about the same length I might just stop here until such time as the authors finish the whole thing and decide to put it in one reasonably priced book. I would definitely read it then.
The story itself, however, is highly entertaining. The zombie thing is the new craze, I know, and I’ve never been crazy about zombies – but this isn’t just a story about undead wind-up dolls. Mostly, it’s the story of a terrified, sure-to-be traumatized little girl. Her innocence and good morals, taught to her by her parents, are heartwarming amidst the gloom of the background; her feelings and experiences as she makes her way through this new wasteland are recorded with great emotion. I may just read #2.

It always has me in the edge craving more because almost every second is a detail to put you in the little girls terrified and gradually maturing mind.
